U.S. broadband continues to get more expensive. Backing up prior comments, Verizon (VZ) is raising the price of its base FiOS broadband plan (15 Mbps downlink/5 Mbps uplink) by $10 to $65/month, The Verge reports, and is also now insisting on a 2-year contract. The second-cheapest plan (50 Mbps down/25 Mbps up) goes for $75/month, and the costliest plan (300 Mbps down/65 Mbps) sells for $205/month. TWC is also eying broadband price hikes.
