Well, I'm assuming I'm on the 1500/380ish plan...

I'm scoring just under 1.5megs which leads me to believe that.

Testmy is saying the average is around 3.2megs but I'm not sure if you start at 3meg or 1.5meg and yu have to ask for the upgrade.

If you do have to ask for the upgrade, is it extra?

I'm on the $29.90ish plan that I just started today so I'm not sure if Verizon starts you off at 1.5megs and you have to get the upgrade.

Just call them up and tell them you would like to upgrade your speed to 3.0Mbps and they will Renew your contract and they going to tell you if you want to cancel your plan before the contract is over its going to cost you like 30-45 dollars  and stuff like that  Its not that hard> Its worth it!!! :D
