Verizon is OPEN FOR BUSINESS during the strike.
That means Fios orders are still being processed and our promo links are still valid.
Companies like Verizon are always testing new offers.
I constantly search all of Verizon’s Fios offers and recommend their best deals here.
Really. I spend my time scouring Verizon for their best Fios offers. Sad for me. Good for you.
I promise you’ll get today’s best deals by clicking one of the promotion links below.
Now is the perfect time to get Fios Triple Play (Internet + TV + Home Phone). According to Verizon, $69.99 this is the lowest price ever advertised for Fios Triple Play.
It all starts with ultra fast 100/100 Mbps Internet (download/upload). You also get Fios TV and Fios Digital Voice phone service – all for only $69.99 per month for the first year. This promotional price is available with or without a contract.
This Triple Play Bundle package comes with Fios Custom TV.
That means Base channels + Local channels + choose 1 Featured channel pack.
Right now there are two featured channel packs to choose between. Essential includes about 190 channels. Everything from AMC, to National Geographic, to History, and much more. Sports & More, just like it sounds, includes a wide range of live sports channels such as FOX Sports, NFL Network, and all of the various ESPN channels.
Having trouble deciding on a channel pack? You might decide to grab both for an extra $10/mo. Or – For serious TV lovers only – Preferred HD channel pack comes with 235+ Channels, 65 in HD. That upgrade will run you $20 per month and is well worth the price if mega variety is a priority.
Fios Digital Voice Phone Service includes unlimited nationwide calling. And despite what you may have heard, a quality home phone line is still a must have for many people – Especially if you do any business from home. And many of us still have bad cellular reception at home. I used to have to stand by a certain window to be able to talk on my cell phone. I finally put a chair next to the window.
Here is another reason why I love the Fios deals that are going on right now… If you sign up online before the promo ends, Verizon will waive the set up fee. That is normally $80 due at sign up, which you get to keep… Easily making this one of the best Fios deals I’ve seen offered!
If you just want to keep your bill as low as possible and you don’t need home phone service, this Fios Double Play is your best deal right now.
With this Fios Double Play bundle deal you get Fios Internet + Fios Local TV bundled together for a special $50 per month for the first year. Internet speeds are a blazing fast 50/50 Mbps with equal download and upload speeds.
Normally high speed internet alone costs at least $50. With this double play you are essentially getting Fios Local TV thrown in for free.
Fios Local TV is the Fios core lineup with over 20 essential channels like ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, Fox… Plus your choice of 1 Premium Channel, free for 6 months. Choose from HBO, Showtime, Starz, and more.
Local TV is adequate if you stick mainly to news and sports. For a grand total of just $50 per month, the value is strong with this one. However, because this package includes only 1 premium channel, I’m not recommending this deal to fans of premium TV. For TV watchers I suggest paying $64.99 per month for Fios Custom TV + Fios 100/100 Internet. This deal costs a bit more but it comes with even faster internet speeds and a lot more TV channels.
Again, these promo monthly rates are not much higher than standard rates for internet alone. So it almost always makes sense to get one of the bundles.
Verizon is NOT requiring a contract. Upon signup Verizon gives you the choice to pay these promo rates on a month-to-month basis.
But if you think you can commit to Verizon for the next 2 years, consider the term agreement. Here’s why…
First of all, you’ll lock in your special low rate for at least 24 months.
And second, you get 2 full years of both HBO and Showtime FREE!
If you cancel service during the 2-year agreement, you may be subject to an early termination charge. But you can take your service with you if you move to a new home during that time.
My Backstory with Fios
A few years ago, several buddies and I flew from LA to Ft Lauderdale for some R & R. We all bought tickets on the same flight. After I purchased my “non-refundable/non-cancellable” ticket, I found out that 1 of my friends paid less than I paid.
Needless to say, I was really mad. When I got home, I began comparing what I was paying for other stuff against advertised prices from the same companies for the same services.
One of the first things I checked with my Verizon Fios bill.
Sure enough, Verizon was advertising a bundle with faster Internet, at a lower price.
I called Verizon and requested a lower rate, which they did give to me for one year. I appreciated that courtesy.
But, I started to monitor Verizon Fios offerings. What I found was that, like many companies, Verizon was constantly testing different offerings with different bundles and different prices. So, I decided that I was going to find the best Fios deals and put them on this blog.
I don’t know how long I can keep doing this.
It’s not easy to impress girls when you tell them that you’ve become the Fios police :)
Why Fios Rules
Originally, one of my closest friends was lucky to get Verizon Fios internet installed at his place. I had to settle for Comcast since my condominium wasn’t wired up for Fios yet.
I loved hanging out there and visiting him since his Fios TV quality and digital interface was amazing. Plus, the internet speeds were ridiculously fast compared to what I could get back at my place. If Fios was available in my area, I would have dropped my slower Comcast service in a heartbeat… Especially with these current Fios offers.
I remember first reading about Verizon’s plan to spend billions of dollars to expand the Fios footprint and introduce it into more homes for internet service. It was called a risky move because the common belief was that wireless internet was on the way. That was five years ago. The latest wireless technologies including 4G and LTE still can’t begin to touch the speed and reliability of what Verizon’s direct fiber optic line is able to offer.
Fios Is Better Than Cable
Already using a cable-based internet provider such as Comcast, Cox, or Time Warner? Then you will really appreciate the speed and quality of Fios! The TV and DVR interface is crystal clear and super clean. That’s because instead of compressing the TV signal and sending it through a regular copper cable line, Fios uses a fiber optic line wired directly into your home.
Another benefit: Your fiber optic internet line is completely independent of your neighbors’. That means when several people in your neighborhood are downloading or streaming Netflix, Hulu and Youtube, your internet still loads super fast and looks amazing. Your internet speed will never slow down… even during peak evening hours!
Verizon’s continuing to take over this market share by competing directly with the big cable companies (meaning ultimately better deals for you). Comcast recently renamed their version of the “Triple Play” bundle- now called Comcast Xfinity. New name… same old copper cables.
To be fair they have developed newer technologies to maximize the copper cables are much as they can. But ultimately they cannot match the speed and consistency you get from fiber optic cables. This could be why Comcast continues to impose monthly caps on downloading and uploading.
Fios is not available in every household. Today around 18 million homes in the US are wired for Fios.
If Fios is not available to you, you’ll have to find your next best option. I’ve been asked a few times to recommend an alternative ISP. I am endorsing bundled DIRECTV + AT&T U-verse for those of you who live in a city where it’s available. In my opinion U-verse is a quality alternative for many reasons.
