Monday Verizon unveiled a new new, symmetrical Verizon FiOS Internet service for consumers, featuring an upload and download speed of up to 20Mbps. Yes, you read that right, 20Mbps upload. The service went live in parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Monday.

The 20/20 service is first launching in New York,
New Jersey and Connecticut, but Verizon says it will come to the
company's 13 other markets eventually. The cost will be $64.99 per
month for those with a Verizon phone contract, and $69.99 for those

Our question: when are you coming to our area?  This makes everyone else look like a snail.

DAG-NABIT why the heck couldn't I live closer to the central office!?!  Verizon, your single most important task at hand is to figure out a way to get one of your Network Infrastructure and equipment suppliers to start running those light links further out from the CO!  GET ON IT!  20Mbit uploads... a web jockey's wet dream.

they always get the fastest speeds, even on comcast right now, in new york area you can get 12 down and 10 up or faster, with the most basic of service, but on this side, you're lucky to get 5 dedicated, on their advertised 8mbit service
