NEW YORK – New Verizon High Speed Internet customers can now build bundles to meet their home communications needs -- at some of the industry’s most aggressive price points, with no contracts or early termination fees on Verizon’s services.

The new pricing and treatment of HSI speed tiers is not a promotional offer; it represents a changed approach to structuring Verizon's copper-based bundles. Effective immediately, Verizon’s HSI bundles feature two double-play pricing tiers as their foundation.

The first tier includes one of two unlimited local and long-distance voice services and supports basic Internet tasks, using 500 kilobits per second (Kbps) to 1 megabit per second (Mbps) speeds for basic things like sending emails and photos or online shopping. The second tier features the highest optimized speeds that customers qualify for between 1.1 Mbps and 15 Mbps for more advanced broadband needs like online gaming, uploading photos to the Web, and downloading movies and songs or other large files.

Consumers can then combine any DirecTV packages to create triple plays, starting at $84.99 a month for 12 months after rebate with DirecTV’s current offer for an enhanced triple-play bundle with a Choice Extra package or $59.99 a month for 12 months after rebate for a basic triple play with a Choice Xtra package.
