Verizon Offers Faster 7 Mbps DSL

Verizon is expanding its 7-megabits-per-second DSL to 1.2 million additional consumers in 12 Eastern states and the District of Columbia. That is twice the speed of Verizon’s current fastest offer and costs $39.99 a month. The following locations are part of the 7 Mbps high-speed Internet expansion: Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and West Virginia. In January, Verizon introduced its fastest Internet service to more than 400,000 home phone lines in the Great Lakes, Southeast, South and on the West Coast.
