Verizon, while a reliable company, has also had a growing reputation as being kind of expensive. However, Fios is not as expensive as you think it is. Actually, the services are comparable to some of the go-to companies for cheaper services.
Verizon is offering some of the best promotions on Internet, phone and cable bundles in the country. Here are some of the deals Verizon Fios is offering in 2016:
- Cable/Home Phone/Internet: $69.99/month
- Cable/Internet: $64.99/month
- Local TV channels, HBO and Showtime for $50/month
- Internet $49.99
- Cable/Home Phone/Internet + $300 Visa Prepaid Card: $79.99/month
- Custom TV Only: $54.99/month
- Order Verizon Fios online and get the setup fee waived ($80 value)
A Few Things to Note:
If you order any of these promotions online, you will be able to receive the limited-time deal of receiving setup for free. You can also get any of these deals with no commitment. Of course, committing to a year or two years will (in some cases) save you some money. However, in the case of the Verizon Fios Triple Play, you can still receive the services for $69.99/month but you will not receive the $300 Prepaid Visa.
You should also note that most of these promotional prices require one to two years of a contract with the company. If the pricing is for a two-year contract, the price is subject to raise after one year.
Each of the Verizon Fios promotions have the option for “Custom TV.” This means that you get to choose some of your channels, which is great because who watches ALL of the channels? You can also get HBO, Showtime and other movie channels for the first six months of your contract in most cases.
If you are an existing Verizon customer, you can use these Fios promotions to your advantage. If you see a promotion that you think you could benefit from, you can call Verizon and talk to them about switching your current plan OR haggling for a new price.
Verizon Fios Reviews
Last but not least, you are probably wondering what people have to say about the Verizon Fios services. Verizon is one of the most reliable companies in the nation, however, what are consumers saying about the Fios services? As far as the actual TV/Internet/Phone, consumers absolutely love Fios. It seems, however, that people enjoy Verizon Fios until they have to give customer service a phone call. In just about every review of the company’s services people praised the quality of the television, Internet and phone but (almost) all of them have something bad to say about customer service.
Before you make any decision about Verizon (or any other company), be sure to compare pricing across the board. Of course, bundles can be convenient, but they can also be more expensive in some cases. Be sure to always compare.
