Well, isn’t this a kick in the pants? If you’re wearing mine it is. Just last week I had Verizon’s FiOS installed in my new apartment and today they announce new offers for customers and upgraded speeds.
In short, I’m pissed. Turns out that I got a better deal and rate when I signed up two weeks ago. Hooray!
The entry-level tier for Internet service was 10Mbps down and 2Mbps up and now it’s 15/5Mbps. The 20/5Mbps (what I have) has now been bumped up to 25/15Mbps. In NYC and LI, the entry-level service starts at 25/15 and the mid-tier speeds have bumped up to 35/20.
Running through August 15th, new customers who order the Triple Play bundle from Verizon will get vouchers for a free Compaq netbook (10.1-inch) or Flip Ultra.
New customers who sign up for a triple bundle that consists of FiOS Internet with a connection speed of 25/15 Mbps or higher, FiOS TV Extreme HD service and FiOS Essentials voice service will receive their choice of a free Compaq Mini netbook* valued at $299.99 (customer only pays shipping, handling and taxes) or a free Flip Ultra camcorder, valued at $149.99.
New customers who order a triple bundle that consists of FiOS Internet with a connection speed of 15/5 Mbps or higher, FiOS TV Essentials service and Freedom Essentials voice service will receive a free Flip Ultra camcorder, or they can opt to purchase a Compaq Mini netbook* for just $99.99.
