Verizon Fios vs. other internet and TV bundles
We named Fios Gigabit Connection + The Most Fios TV the best overall cable and internet deal because it has a reliable internet connection, included equipment, and Verizon’s top-notch customer service.
But if you’re feeling sour that Verizon Fios internet and TV bundles don’t come with discounts, keep your chin up. Verizon Fios has tons of competitors ready to make it rain savings.
Spectrum Gold Double Play is the best bundle for movies, thanks to its huge lineup of included premium channels like HBO Max™, SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, STARZENCORE®, and TMC®. But depending on your location, Spectrum’s internet speeds may not be as fast as Verizon Fios’s. It’s hard to balance your TV-obsession to internet-love ratio—we get it.
Xfinity Preferred Pro+ Double Play is our best bundle for discounts, thanks to Xfinity’s $20-per-month savings when you package TV and internet. Add phone service, and you’ll get $40 off the total. Pretty sleek!
Optimum charges about $50 less on TV and internet deals than the services are separately. But Optimum’s TV prices are egregiously expensive, so the final prices aren’t as good as you’d think. Still, it can’t hurt to take a look at Optimum bundles to see if there’s anything special for you.
