Re: [connectivity] Verizon DSL not available anymore

said by Anon12 :

Verizon should add another plan, e.g. 5/1 for a price comparable to DSL, to FIOS to accomodate DSL customer migration. Some people just don't need a lot of bandwidth.

Verizon did implement a $20 3/1 Fios tier for this very purpose, a year ago July. Haven't heard a peep about it since.

It still seems to be around. Word of it surfaces when more folks complain about getting booted off of DSL

elray, thanks for the heads up.

Smith6612, I did some searching and saw a post (here: »FiOS 3 / 1 Package now available ) that said the 3/1 plan is only by invitation and is actually provisioned 5/2. Is this still the case from the posts you've seen here? Thanks in advance if you can answer that.

I'm pretty sure that's the case. They invite you to it to get you onto FiOS from DSL. I haven't confirmed if it runs at 5/2 myself but others have.
