They probably figure 30/5 will be much more heavily used. They're billing based on the average amount of bandwidth they expect to be used, and I'm pretty sure they figure 30/5 will be used primarily be really, really heavy users.
I'm thinking it has to be.
I'd like to get it. Keep in mind that, as a friend of mine who is a retired telecomm guy pointed out, once you go FiOS, neither you nor any future occupant of your home will be able to get copper from Verizon. They disconnect the copper PERMANENTLY. You can request that your POTS line not be disconnected, but you have to specifically request it. And I doubt Verizon will give you the option if you don't.
