I'd call my business FIOS "prosumer" ;). Honestly, I'm not sure why
you'd get business FIOS over residential FIOS if you don't need static
IP addresses, at least if you're at an address where both are available.
I pay $125/month for 50/50 with 5 statics, which serves my household and
my IT consulting home office. I don't think my budget could cover "more
expensive" SLA-bound circuits :). I looked into whether I could get same
speed lower cost or higher speed same cost after the Frontier cutover,
but I'm afraid all I have to look forward to is same speed higher cost
when my current two year legacy Verizon contract expires :(.

Maybe I should move to Texas - Google business fiber 250/250 for
$100/month, with 13 statics for some additional cost I can't find
documented. Plus IPv6. Be nice to have some last mile competition around
here. LA is on their "some day" list, but who knows what that means
geographically plus they've pretty much stopped expanding and switched
to wireless 8-/.
