Verizon Fios internet plans and pricing
Verizon Fios internet-only plans
*w/ Auto Pay + taxes & equipment charges. Data effective as of 05/06/2020. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.
Again, for fiber-optic internet, Verizon Fios internet-only prices are on the lower end of the scale. If you’re looking for a compromise between monthly cost and speed, the middle plan, Fios Internet 400/400, is your best (and, yes, only) bet.
Verizon Fios internet + TV packages
*w/ Auto Pay + taxes & equip charges. Data effective as of 05/06/2020. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.
Like its internet plans, Verizon Fios’s TV packages are surprisingly inexpensive, given their large channel counts. There’s even one (Your Fios TV) that can be customized to your preferences. Nice.
Verizon will throw in 12 months of Disney+ for free ($6.99/mo. after) when you sign up for Fios internet service, a value of $84 a year.
Pair your Verizon mobile plan with a Fios Home Internet plan and get up to $10/mo. off your Verizon Wireless bill and up to $10/mo. off your Fios bill. Plus, get $10/mo. toward your next phone or tablet.
Verizon Fios has a few different Wi-Fi routers and gateways to cover your home in Wi-Fi internet. Don’t worry about being overwhelmed with choices, though—the Verizon team will pick out the best modem for your area and service.
Renting a Verizon Fios router or gateway costs $15.00 a month, or you can buy the device outright for $299.99. Buying your equipment costs about the same as renting it for a year and a half. Or, if you have the Fios Gigabit Connection plan, your router comes included at no additional cost.
We recommend that, if you’ve got the cash, you play the long game. Go ahead and buy your Verizon Fios Wi-Fi equipment—it’s a stellar option that not enough providers allow.
Verizon Fios vs. Optimum, Xfinity, and Spectrum
There are many internet service providers that compete with Verizon Fios for your affection (and cash). Depending on where you live, the biggest competitor is probably Optimum, Xfinity, or Spectrum.
If you’re interested in a deal, Optimum and Xfinity internet plans cost about the same as Verizon Fios’s. Optimum’s gigabit plan is a little cheaper than Verizon Fios’s, and Optimum sometimes has flash deals if you keep an eye out for them.
Or if you’d like to bundle your internet service with TV, Xfinity has some great discounts on package deals. Xfinity doesn’t have the same huge channel lineup as Verizon, but it’s not too shabby.
On the other hand, Spectrum tends to cost more than Verizon Fios, unless you go with one of its slower plans. But you really shouldn’t—you deserve fast internet.
The big drawback to these Verizon Fios alternatives is that they’re all cable internet providers. Fiber internet is faster (especially regarding upload speeds) and more reliable, making Verizon Fios the best option, technologically speaking.
