Deal Alert: Verizon Fios Has a Great Deal for Cord Cutters


Internet is an important part of being a cord cutter. While you don’t need home Internet to be a cord cutter, it does make cord cutting so much easier.

Now Verizon Fios has a special TV deal that is great for cord cutters. Right now you can get 50/50 Internet only for $39.99 with free set up! (A $99.99 savings if you order online.)

Still locked in a contract? No issue! Verizon is offering to buy you out of your current TV or Internet contract by offering up to a $500 credit to cover the cost of your buyout at your old provider.

Even if you don’t want to switch knowing what others are offering will help you negotiate with your current provider. I highly recommend that every year or two every cord cutter takes a moment to review their subscriptions and especially their home Internet. Taking an hour a year to shop around could save you hundreds every year.

Legal details:

* Offer for new Fios Internet res. customers is non-transferable and has no cash or refund value. Documentation of early termination fee (ETF) for TV, Internet and phone from your prior service provider must be provided w/in 90 days of installation and offer will be fulfilled via bill credit, to your Verizon account, in the amount of the ETF up to $500.

    So, still forced to rent equipment. Deal breaker for me. But then I wasn’t really looking anyway.

    It be nice if you could use a fiber Jack in place of the on the and Verizon router.

    Why wouldn’t you post the REAL price after the promotion ends… That’s feeding into the reason why we become cord cutters, misleading promotions, hiding everyday prices, and stacking fees on top of fees. No thanks Verizon.

    Hold up-
    Verizon gives you a credit on your Verizon bill for the early termination fee… However you are responsible for paying your early termination fee for your previous bill that you cut off… What’s wrong with this picture? Why don’t you show proof of the early termination fee from your previous provider so that Verizon can pay that bill? Crooks…

    Wish this was offered in my area. This Gigabit speed is awesome.

    Price – $69.99/month for just Internet, $79.99/month for “triple play” (Internet, TV, home phone) when you order online (goes up to $84.99 in 2nd year)
    Availability – “over 8 million homes in parts of the New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Richmond, Va., Hampton Roads, Va., Boston, Providence and Washington, D.C. areas”

    Happy with the 50 down and 15 up for $39.99 deal I was offered when I cancelled cable with RCN. At first they wanted $69.99 but some educated negotiations brought the charges down to $39.99.

    I frequently switch between Comcast and Verizon Fios for internet to maintain the promotional rate year round. For Verizon, you don’t need to rent a router, you can use your own router. We don’t have a coax coming out of the Fios box, but just a CAT-5 cable, piece of cake. The tech who first installed the Fios box didn’t even know you could use your own router, until I showed him otherwise. For Comcast, I bought my own modem for $50 bucks. That way I never have a rental fee, and never need a technician to come out when I switch from one provider to another.

    So? It’s only valid in the very few markets which Verizon actually wants to compete. The areas of the 1%ers. 98% of the country only has Xfinity and local DSL.
