Meanwhile, I let the Verizon sales-cog talk me into fiber. We are looking to move sometime next year, so having fiber to the house is a selling point. It should show in a few weeks.
Of course, the advertised price is introductory. It will increase, but only back to our Mindspring + Phone days. That's not too bad. The salesman fibbed a little, saying that we were on 750k. I knew that was wrong, so I measured out my speed to 3mb. With fiber, I expect an advertised speed of 15mb, and a practical speed of 10mb.
