Verizon is, like Speakeasy, 1.5mbps down now. 

If anyone has an old 786k for $50/month plan, ask them for an upgrade &
you can get 1.5mb for $35/month.

I can't imagine them giving it if you don't ask for it -- if a customer is
happy paying more money for less bandwidth then I'm sure they're happy to
leave things as is -- but the current 1.5mb/$35 plan is available to all
of their customers now.
