After getting Doug's email, I called Verizon, and they upgraded my
connection.  No mention of a change in contract or fees.  They only had
to check to see if my lines could handle it. 

It took

    * 24 minutes to get a human on the phone
    * 1 minute to make my request
    * 1 minute to check out the lines
    * and two hours (maybe less) to deliver on the change.

I needed to wait 2 hours, run adsl-stop, reboot the modem, run
adsl-start, and done.
