[NEW] Fios now includes 2 years HBO or 2 years multi-room DVR service
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.
This is the best online-exclusive Fios deal for September. Sign up for bundled Fios Triple Play for $79.99/mo and get the most bang for your buck.
It all starts with ultra fast Gigabit Internet (up to 940Mbps/880Mbps). Of course “Triple Play” means you’re also getting bundled Fios TV and Fios Digital Voice phone service. This price available with or without a long term contract.
Fios Digital Voice Phone Service still 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 true if you do any business from home. 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.
This bundle also includes upgraded Fios Custom TV. That means Base Channels + Local Channels + choose 1 Featured channel pack. At this time you can choose from the following 7 Featured channel packs:
- Action & Entertainment
- Sports & News
- Kids & Pop
- News & Variety
- Infotainment & Drama
- Lifestyle & Reality
- Home & Family
Each pack comes loaded with 190+ channels. By choosing the pack that best fits your viewing habits, you get the extra channels you actually care to watch. For example sports fans may select Sports & News to get access to all the various ESPN channels, in addition to all the essentials.
Limited Time Bonus Rewards
Here is another reason to choose this deal… If you sign up online before the promo ends, Verizon will not charge standard setup fees. Period. Normally that’s $99.99 due at sign up. But that’s not all you get. Check out all the bonus rewards that come with this triple play bundle.
Without 2-Year Agreement
- Up to $500 to help cover an early termination fee
- Standard setup fee waived ($99.99 value)
With 2-Year Agreement
- Up to $500 to cover an early termination fee
- Standard setup fee waived ($99.99 value)
- HBO included for 2 years (with 2-year agreement) OR
- Free multi-room DVR service for 2 years (with 2-year agreement)
All in all, this may be the most valuable bundle deal since I started this page. Mainly I love the gigabit speeds, which are the fastest ever included with bundled Fios Triple Play.
Next is a NEW offer for Fall 2017 which I predict to be a hot seller. Get everything included in the Best Deal Overall above – minus Fios Digital Voice – for only $74.99/mo.
If you want all the glory of ultra fast 940/880 Mbps internet speeds, plus the large selection of TV channels included with Fios Custom TV… BUT you want to save $5 each month by passing on home phone service… Look no further. This is your bundle.
In the years I’ve been tracking Fios deals, this one strikes me as unique. In the past Verizon required you to sign up for a Triple Play bundle to get the highest speed tier with all the bonus rewards included. My guess is that enough people demanded a bundle like this… So Verizon delivered!
This promo rate is comparable to standard rates for internet alone… so it almost always makes sense to bundle.
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. Don’t hesitate to lock in this rate if you’re sitting on the fence. You can always upgrade later if you need more speed or more channels.
With this Fios bundle you get Fios Internet and Fios Local TV bundled together for only $49.99 per month for the first year. Internet speeds are a nimble 50/50 Mbps with equal download and upload.
Normally Fios 50/50 high speed internet costs around $50 per month alone. So this double play gives you 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… and more.
For a grand total of around $50 per month, the value is strong with this one. But if you crave those super fast speeds plus premium TV go with the Best Double Play deal above. Ultra fast gigabit internet means you pay a higher monthly bill. It also means access more channels and faster internet than 99% of your neighbors.
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 fast wireless internet was on the way. That was
five six years ago. Welp… The latest wireless technologies still can’t begin to touch the speed and reliability of what Verizon’s direct fiber optic line is able to offer.
Still 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 many times to recommend an alternative ISP. I am endorsing bundled DIRECTV + AT&T for those of you who live in a city where it’s available. I would personally prefer Verizon Fios for all the reasons listed above, but DIRECTV AT&T is a decent alternative.
