Verizon intros 'Mix & Match' plans for Fios in strike at cable industry
NEW YORK -- Say goodbye to traditional cable bundles. Today, Verizon unveiled a completely new way to provide Internet and TV with Mix & Match on Fios. Customers can now mix Internet and TV plans to match their needs, with Fios Internet options starting at just $39.99 per month. Mix & Match on Fios takes those cable-industry pain points head on, with simple, customer-friendly pricing, choices to suit your needs, no extra fees, no annual contracts, and no surprises.
Why the change and what's in it for customers?
"Customers have been loud and clear about their frustrations with cable, and we've listened. As a result, we're transforming our approach to Internet and TV offers by giving customers more choices and more transparency," says Frank Boulben, Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing and Products at Verizon. "Customers are tired of having to buy a bundle with services they don't want to get the best rates, and then discover that those rates didn't include extra fees and surcharges. We're putting an end to the traditional bundle contract and putting customers in control."
So, how does it work?
First, choose the Internet speed that's right for you.
Verizon offers three options to choose from - 100 Mbps, 300 Mbps and Gigabit Connection - making it easy to find a plan that fits your needs. For new subscribers who choose Gigabit, the brand new Fios Home Router featuring WiFi 6 technology is included, and you'll be eligible for a $100 Visa Prepaid Card.
