updgrading from 5/2 to 10/2

I understand FiOS internet customers in some/most areas can be upgraded from 5/2 internet service to 10/2 at no extra cost. Who do I need to speak with to upgrade my service? I was in a Verizon Wireless/FiOS store earlier this afternoon, and all they could offer was to upgrade me to 20/5 for $10 more per month.

In most areas this is done automatically, but it usually takes some time. You can also call to (888) 553-1555 and they can upgrade it for you if it is definitely available and the price has not increased.

Verizon doesn't do automatic updates. You will have to talk to billing, they're the only ones who can put in a speed upgrade. Call and aim yourself down the phone tree by saying billing. Answer a few questions in the billing branch, and then say "Agent", and it will connect you to a human. The upgrade is free if you are at the current rate in your bundle. Otherwise it may raise your monthly rate @ $3.

On top of that, if you have any sort of bundle with Verizon, you will have to renew your entire contract for another 2 years.  Pretty {word filter} since I can make any change I want to my TV service by adding / subtracting services without renewing a contract.  I can also add / remove features from my phone line without signing up for another 2 years.  Why would I want to renew for another 2 years for all three when I'm just updating the internet?
