I dunno if rates NEED to go up. It all depends on verizons pricing model and what their profit margins are. Since they're effectively a monopoly I'm fairly certain their current margins are more than enough of absorb a hardware upgrade without impacting us.

Actually crobgauth, I would like to know how YOU know that an upgrade would actually result in a rate increase.

Not saying that any one upgrade will cause a rate increase.

But if Verizon (like any other business) is forced to increase their costs, it eventually gets passed on to their customers.

And therein lies the problem, these guys aren't like any other business because other businesses have competition. 

 

Notice how quickly incubment ISP's are able to roll out gigabit service as soon as google announces its moving in? And in addition there's no rate increase to the customers?

As soon as other providers offer > 500/500 I'm switching unless Verizon stops peering like a mom and pop ISP.
