Verizon is rolling out new pricing options for its high speed FiOS service. The entry level plan which runs $44.99/month will now deliver customers 15MB/s download speeds and 5MB/s uploads. Other plans offer a bundle of phone, internet, and TV service, or faster internt speeds. You can find more details of the new pricing tiers at PC Magazine, but here’s the interesting part (for me, anyway): the company is also running a promotion allowing some new customers to get either a free netbook or a Flip Ultra video camera.
Oddly, Verizon describes the netbook as a Compaq Mini, which is the name that HP gives to some of the netbooks it sells in Europe. My guess is it’s basically an HP Mini 110 netbook.
The netbook/video camera promotion is avialable for customers who sign up between now and August 15th.
