as long as you are within the designated area from the CO.

other than that all Verizon DSL customers can now upgrade their service at the same cost if you have the $29.95 a month plan.

i've had the 1500/384 service since december and found out last night that all eligible Verizon customers can upgrade and still keep the same price.

i called first thing this morning and they told me it would be up and running within 24 hours. i got home about 6:30 PM tonight and checked and everything is up at the new speeds.

WOOHOO!!! :D :D

I was wondering about that, i live in the middle of nowhere in a town of 2,500 on the water. But i am qualified for 3.0mb, i think there is a verizon building somewhere close but im not sure what it is. I must be a lucky one.
