    How much of a difference would it be to what I'm using now.

    <<<30$/Month

    Worth it? This upgrade will help with my buy time right?

    Or should I get

    FiOS Internet 25/25 Mbps Plan
    FiOS Internet
    Up to 25/25 Mbps
    Online Exclusive Offer

    50% OFF Verizon Security and Backup Bundle for 12 months.

    I don't like how its 15mbps/5 , not sure what it means. 25/25 looks way more stable but more expensive.

    Discuss and advise me oh great ones.

    Holy Shit, YES!

    The 15/5 plan?

    @MasterMind0wnz

    Why is it 15/5 and the other 25/25 what does that mean?

    Yes, I have the 15/5 Plan.

    The other plan is 25mb/s up and 25mb/s down. They usually give you a 5mbit increase on your download speed though.

    If you use the internet alone, then the 15mb package should be sufficient. If you share it with other people then you might want to get the 25mb package.
    Since we're talking about internet speeds, anyone know why I'm getting like 8mb/s on Firefox yet 30mb/s+ on Chrome..

    I share the internet w/ my sister who likes to stream korean dramas and my dad uses PPS to do live streaming from a Hong Kong Channel...

    FML.

    Oh and @bamag, Chrome is just cool like that, the programming.

    Never mind, it seems my firefox just had bad settings :p
    OH GOD NO.. NOT PPS! WORST PROGRAM EVER.. Then again, since Verizon FiOS has pretty high upload speeds, it might not be too bad.
    I used to use Verizon DSL too and it would be really bad when someone used PPS lol. I'm doing pretty fine with other people using PPS now though.

    Well, can't you get the 15/5 package and if its not fast enough, upgrade? Also don't bother with Verizon's security crap, its a waste of money.

    I don't. Waiting till next Saturday for them to install.

    I just hope they don't add any extra fees n shit for the upgrade.

    What happens after my one year contract lapse? Do they change the price of the service?
