Verizon Speeds Up

It appears that Verizon Communications is notching up their broadband offerings as well:
On Monday, [Verizon] announced it would be doubling the speed of its $30-a-month service. It also said it will add 11 new communities in Massachusetts to its list of fiber-to-the-home deployments. (via cnet)
The new speeds will reach about 3 mbps (megabits per second) for downloading files, sound, images, and web browsing. This doubles their current download rates, and the company hopes this move will bring Verizon closer to matching their cable internet competitors like Comcast who recently upgraded all their users to 4 mbps (megabits per second)

Their fiber-to-the-home installations will enable speeds of 30mbps (wow), and they plan to serve video over the network as well.
