Verizon Bundle Deals
The trend in recent years has been to consolidate services. Cable services, for example, began selling Internet and phone services so all of the services could be combined onto a single bill to make paying easier and to help consumers save money. Phone services quickly followed the trend and began creating their own cost-saving bundles. Now that Verizon is rolling out its FiOS services, a whole new line of bundles is being made available in those areas where this service can be purchased. Below is an overview of some of the Verizon bundles available for this service.
Lowest Price Bundle
For just under $100 per month, you can receive FiOS Internet in your home with speeds of 10 Mbps for downloads and 2 Mbps for uploads (faster speeds than currently available for the fastest high speed Verizon DSL service). Along with the high speed Internet, you will also receive FiOS TV Essentials which includes more than 290 digital channels and 14 HD channels for your viewing. The bundle is rounded out by the Verizon Freedom Essentials voice plan. This plan offers unlimited local and long distance calling, voice mail, and popular features, including Call Waiting and Caller ID.
The Better Bundle
For just under $110 per month, you’ll receive a trio of services, including high speed Internet, voice, and television programming. This plan, like the cheaper one, comes with the Verizon Freedom Essentials plan so you’ll have complete unlimited calling, Caller ID, Call Waiting, and voice mail with this package, too. However, you will receive faster speed with your FiOS Internet: 20 Mbps for downloads and 5 Mbps for uploads. The biggest difference, however, is in your television package. Called FiOS TV Extreme HD, this part of the plan will give you more than 340 digital channels and 55 HD channels.
The High End Bundle
For just under $140 per month, you can have a similar combination of services, plus something extra for movie lovers. As with the two previous bundles, the Verizon Freedom Essentials voice plan is going to be included here as well. That means you’ll get the unlimited calling and all of the extra features that particular plan comes with. Additionally, you will receive the same speed of Verizon FiOS Internet: 20 Mbps for downloads and 5 Mbps for uploads. You will also have bundled with these services that FiOS TV Extreme HD plan with its 348 digital channels and 55 HD channels. The difference between this and the preview plan, besides approximately $30 per month, is the FiOS TV premium channels which include more than 45 HD channels that includes HBO, Cinemax, and other premium movie channels.
Other Bundle Options
Depending on your location and the services available in your area, you may be able to choose from other Verizon FiOS bundles. One example is known as the Verizon Flex Triple Play. With this plan, you do receive the FiOS Internet with 20 Mbps downloads and 5 Mbps uploads. You also receive the FiOS TV Extreme HD plan which includes digital and HD channels, as well as a number of sports channels. Plus, you will have the Nationwide Basic wireless plan which includes 450 minutes, as well as unlimited nights and weekends and unlimited calling to five of your closest friends and family members, as well as unlimited calling to other Verizon wireless subscribers. This particular bundle costs just under $120 per month but could be a good choice if you no longer want to use your landline phone and are already or are interested in becoming a Verizon Wireless customer.
Good Reasons to Choose Bundles
When you’re looking at the above bundles, you are getting three great services in each one and saving money in the process. Plus, Verizon is offering $150 back to customers who sign up for a two year agreement for one of these bundles.
Another benefit of choosing the bundles is that you can sometimes put together the package of your choices. Because Verizon offers so many services, you can mix and match to get the bundle that best meets your needs. A combination of wireless phone, landline phone, television programming, and high speed choices are available.
But what if you want all four of these services? If all four are available in your area, you can combine them into your own bundle. Here is an example of what you can get for just under $150 when you create a custom bundle:
• Verizon Freedom Essentials voice service (unlimited local and long distance calling, voice mail, Caller ID, and Call Waiting)
• FiOS Internet (20 Mbps downloads and 5 Mbps uploads)
• FiOS Extreme HD with hundreds of digital and dozens of HD channels
• Nationwide Basic (450 minutes of call time, plus unlimited calling to in-network, to five of your friends and family members, and anyone on nights and weekends)
You can also save $10 on the price of that bundle if you downgrade your television option to FiOS television essentials. Or you could save approximately $70 by dropping both phone plans and sticking to just the FiOS Extreme HD and the FiOS Internet services.
Upgrading Your Bundle
Another nice feature of purchasing bundles is that you can still usually upgrade many of the services included. For example, if you want to boost the speed of your FiOS Internet, you may be able to do that just by adding some additional fees to your monthly plan. Likewise, you can add more channels and features onto your FiOS television programming packages.
Remember that different bundle options may be available in your area. Consider your specific needs before you being choosing a bundle – you don’t save money by adding services you don’t want or need. Always compare what you’d be paying individually for services, as well. That way you can make sure you are getting the best price possible for the services you want to have in your home.
