they don't block ports like verizon and don't limit your bandwidth. i
lived right across from the Central Office and got 7.1mps/800mps  on
ADSL paying only $60/month (includes unlimited local and long distance).

Now i moved to a place where calvalier doesn't service but still across
the street from a Central Office. The ISP (earthlink) i'm using does
limit my bandwith to 3mbps/800mbps though I could pay more to get
7mbps/800mbps. Had a 30day trial with verizon but canceled cuz they
block port 80. earthlink doesn't block ports and is $10/month cheaper
than verizon.

Verizon sucks... they wouldn't even talk to you if u run linux. Avoid
them if you have a choice. The tech support are clueless, but this is
true with earthlink too.
