Yes, that’s 20 Mbps up. For $65/month. When will FiOS coverage extend from the rest of my neighborhood to my apartment?
Available today, 20/20 will cost $64.99 per month and will include Verizon’s Internet Security Suite and 1GB of online backup (up to 50GB can be purchased at “competitive rates.”)
Ooooh. That’s why. They want to sell you online backup space, and online backup is awful over a slow upstream.
Hopefully they won’t pull a huge network neutrality violation and throttle the competitors in online backup such as Mozy and Carbonite. (Cable ISPs have throttled Vonage to make it unusable so you need to switch to their own branded version of the same service for $30/month.)
Despite the reasoning behind this, it’s a great move, and I hope other ISPs follow suit.
