Is Verizon Fios internet good?

“Fios” may not be a real word, but Verizon’s fiber-optic internet service is legit—and fast. With download speeds peaking at 940 Mbps (megabits per second) for $80 a month, Verizon Fios internet leaves most of the competition in the dust.

The East Coast competition, that is: Verizon Fios internet service is currently available in only nine eastern US states. Like every other American internet service provider, Verizon hasn’t yet achieved full sea-to-shining-sea fiber coverage. But, if you can get it, we recommend signing up.

Verizon Fios offers three plans, all fast and relatively cheap for fiber-optic internet. We like the top-tier Fios Gigabit Connection because its blazing download and upload speeds could handle all the users and devices a household could throw at it. Buffering begone!

But for $40 a month less, the Fios Internet 200/200 plan is still plenty fast and stable if you’re on a tighter budget—200 Mbps of download speed is where many old-school DSL and cable internet services max out, after all, and usually at higher prices.

Again, for fiber-optic internet, Verizon Fios’s internet pricing is 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.

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 Fios promotions and deals

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.

Our final take on Verizon Fios internet

Verizon Fios’s fiber-optic internet provides a lot of speed for a little money—nothing to argue with here. Fiber-optic connections are the new internet gold standard, and Verizon Fios sweetens the deal by keeping its plans and pricing simple.

But it’s only a sweet deal if you live in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, or Washington, DC—Verizon Fios internet isn’t a nationwide service just yet. If you are in the right ZIP code, we say go for Fios.

Verizon Fios internet FAQ

Does Verizon Fios internet come with a contract or extra fees?

Unlike most internet service providers, Verizon Fios requires no annual contract; you simply pay month to month. No contract also means no potential early termination fees if you suddenly need to move or drop the service.

The Verizon Fios setup fee is $99—unless you order online. Then it’s free. Also, Verizon includes a modem/router with Fios Gigabit Connection service. Internet 200/200 and Internet 400/400 come with a monthly $15 modem/router rental fee.

Why isn’t Verizon Fios internet available in my area?

While the “backbone” of the internet (yes, the whole internet) is made up of fiber optics (microscopic glass strands that transmit data as pulses of light), most “last mile” connections that go directly to homes and businesses are still made up of old copper phone lines and coaxial TV cables.

Fiber-to-premises internet is an expensive but slowly growing infrastructure; currently, less than half of the US is covered by fiber. If your neighborhood isn’t hooked up yet, internet providers like Verizon Fios are probably planning fiber expansion in your area—but it won’t happen overnight.

These states currently have Verizon Fios fiber internet:

  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Virginia
  • Washington, DC

Can I bundle Verizon services together?

Verizon’s internet, TV, and home phone services can all be bundled in various configurations. You won’t necessarily get a discount in every case, but it’s at least convenient.
