Verizon Fios has, probably, the fastest Internet for the price in the country, and now it's giving you an even better reason to switch.
If you are looking to switch over to Verizon Fios right now, you can get a $200 Visa Prepaid Card for signing up. There are a couple of plans that Verizon Fios has available right now. One is for $59.99 and gives you Fios Internet with 300Mbps down and 300Mbps up with a $100 Visa Prepaid Card.
Moving up to the $79.99 level, there are two packages at this price. Both of which include a $200 Visa Prepaid Card. You can get Verizon Fios Internet with speeds of 940Mbps down and 880Mbps up along with a free modem rental for three years for $79.99. The other option includes the same Internet speeds, but you also get Fios TV Test Drive & Phone service. So if you are looking to get phone service from Verizon, this is a good way to do it.
The other plans go up from there and include other services as part of a bundle, going up to $109.99.
Verizon Fios is one of the best ISPs in the nation when it comes to speed. And that is because its entire network is built on fiber. This allows Verizon to offer up faster speeds on both the upload and download side. If you were to go to Comcast or AT&T and get comparable download speeds of 300Mbps or 1Gbps, your upload speeds would be much different. We're talking in the single digits. Luckily Verizon Fios matches or gets very close to matching, its upload and download speeds.
You might wonder what good are these faster speeds? Well, it means that you'll be able to watch 4K content streaming on your network, without any issues. If you have kids, they can also stream 4K content at the same time, while Mom downloads a movie to watch on her train into work tomorrow. For most people, the 940Mbps plan is going to be overkill, as far as speed goes. But as we get more dependent on media and want higher-resolution media, it's going to be a bigger deal.
Those that have a pretty large household are going to want the 940/880 plan from Verizon Fios, as it'll make sure that your WiFi never slows down. Even if your kids bring over their friends to do "homework" after school.
The only major downside to Verizon Fios is the fact that it is not available everywhere. It is available in a handful of markets. This includes cities in New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Delaware, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and of course Washington, DC. So before you get too excited, you're going to want to check and make sure that it is available in your area. Verizon Fios also has a pretty awesome app for Fios TV, if you are looking to add TV to your plan, you'll want to check out our rundown on the Fios TV app here.
