Does anyone have a number for Verizon DSL retention? I'm paying ~$63/mo for unlimited phone + 1.5mbps DSL, and Optimum currently has a promotion for $50/mo for phone with 15mbps.

Yes, PLEASE!
The box isn't so valuable that they would offer so low. When did you sign up? Also, do you have TV also? You only mention phone and internet in your ()

What happened?
I had optimum for 65 and I was sick of their service, so I signed up for Verizon and they installed a fios box. Then when I called to cancel optimum they promised me the world. Optimum lowered the monthly charge for a year and gave me 50/5 Internet.
I then canceled Verizon.

I kept getting mail from Verizon with good rates for a triple play, and started singing up only to realize it would be 85 a month so I dropped it.
About 2 weeks later I got a letter from Verizon that they would offer me a credit of 10 a month, and there was another deal I found online for another 10 off and I put the deals together.
But not before I told Verizon I would cancel because I am getting 50 mps from optimum.  They gave me that too.

A Verizon eCenter Representative will be right with you. Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.
Agent Martina has joined. (12:45:57)
Martina : Chat ID for this session is 04271459160. (12:45:57)
Martina(12:45:57): Hello. Thank you for choosing Verizon and visiting our Verizon chat service. May we view your account information, including the services you subscribe to, to assist you during this chat with respect to available Verizon products and services? You may deny us permission, which will have no effect on your current services. Under federal law, it is your right and our duty to protect your account information. May I have permission to review your account?
You(12:46:23): Hi, are there any additional installation fees and what are the monthly taxes and fees total?
Martina(12:47:38): Hi! Thank you for considering Verizon residential services. I would be happy to answer your each of the questions and walk you through the online order process step by step to complete an order online.
Martina(12:48:13): As per current online promotions we have waived new service activation fee.
Martina(12:48:34): Also, we offer Free professional technician installation for your up to three TVs and primary computer.
You(12:49:05): Is there a way to not take an equipment package? I see that the monthly fee is 7.99. I dont need the equipment
You(12:52:29): Also, is there anyway to use my own router. (netgear), I dont want to "rent" a router
Martina(12:52:29): I am sorry, but in order to proceed with the online order at this time you would need to select alteast one TV equipment.
You(12:53:11): Is always the mandatory "add ons" that have kept me with optimum... Thanks anyway
Martina(12:54:41): It is not required to keep the TV equipment. It is just to complete an order process. You can return your Set Top Box to Verizon once the services are activated at your location vis ups or drop at Verizon store in your area.
Martina(12:55:01): Let me share there are various wireless Router available in the market which are only compatible with cable Internet service, but not with FiOS Internet service which is provided on the fiber channel. That is the reason you would need to have Wireless Router provided by Verizon.
Martina(12:55:26): FiOS compatible Wireless Router will also enable you to create a home network so that multiple computers can be online at the same time. Your router also contains special diagnostic software that can help us trouble shoot and correct problems should you experience trouble with your Internet connection.
You(12:56:18): Ok I thought any cheap router can do all of the above. How is fios internet different?
Martina(12:58:19): Let me share FiOS Internet service is provided on the fiber cable channels that is different than the cable Internet service. There are different slots and wiring for Fiber channels internet service. To connect Wireless Router with FiOS Internet service, Wireless Router has to be compatible with Fiber cable channel network.
You(12:58:45): Ok thanks for now. appreciate it have a nice day!

Fios isn't a regular cable. The rep is correct.

For verizon, their router is their modem as well....ask them if they have a lower priced modem that can be used with FiOS?
I have nothing witty to write here....
