Verizon has just released a new promotional campaign (see the $300 gift card details below), which spells big savings for new customers looking to sign up for new service or switch over from any of the big cable companies or from their old DSL lines. Lots of people are seeing their bills spike recently which is driving a lot of customers to seek out cheaper (and better) alternatives.
With Verizon FiOS not only do you get the most advanced technology available today, but the promotions that are available also make FiOS one of the least expensive options out there for TV + Internet + Phone service (win-win-win!). If you are lucky enough to live in an area where FiOS fiber has been rolled out, you’ll get the best combination of speed, price, and service out there.
Let’s take a look at some of the the best specials that Verizon is offering for new FiOS sign ups in August of 2014:
|FiOS PLAN||New Customer Triple Play Offer||FiOS TV||FiOS Internet speed||Promo Price (per month)|

With every bundle you get FiOS Digital voice which gives you unlimited nationwide calling.

Verizon is now also waiving the activation fee which usually costs $49.99 but only for online orders (click any of the links on this page to get it).
You also have the option of adding HBO and/or Cinemax for 50% off for the first year when you sign up as a new customer.
FiOS Fiber Optics & Quantum Speeds
Unlike cable providers that offer temporary “burst” speeds (What Comcast calls “Powerboost” for example) , FiOS is able to deliver blazing fast internet speeds and superior quality HD picture consistently because it’s based on a 100% fiber optic to the home technology. In contrast, cable companies use fiber optics but then have to split the connection and run regular cable to the homes, which means if a lot of your neighbors are using the internet at the same time (especially during peak times), your connection speeds will go down. This is not the case with FiOS, especially FiOS Quantum.
What Verizon means by the term “Quantum” is anything starting with 50 Mbps downloads and 50 Mbps uploads and up. To give you an idea – with a 50/50 connection you can download (and upload) a 5 GB 2-hr. HD video in only 13.3 minutes. It’s very rare to find anything that can currently match those kinds of speeds in a consumer market – especially at this price.
Verizon FiOS is only available in select areas and this promotion is only being offered for a limited time. The links on this page are affiliate links and are updated according to the latest promotions available as of August 25, 2014.
