I might also add to my last comments that I do ALL of my own services -

(Verizon) info with Business DSL they supply a lot I would not use. I
don't want their domain name, mail, webpage etc. The unlimited dialup is
nice I guess in a pinch.

I also have Verizon home service package - wired line and two Verizon Cell
phones. I am assuming that there would be some discount using all of their
services. At least they state that.

As long as everything you are doing is for private non-commercial use.

If you are reselling your Virtual Hosting, etc, then you are in violation of the contracts.

I don't know if Verizon monitors and limits its DSL customer's traffic.
DCA definitely does NOT.
Comecast definitely DOES.

If Verizon does not monitor and limit, then it is probably an item like support for greater than 2400 baud modems on POTS -- as long as you don't tell them that you are trying to run 56K they will talk to you, but as soon as you say 56K, they will tell you it's not tariffed for that and that you have to buy a different service to run at that speed.
