This post is a sponsored opportunity from Fios. However, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.
In addition to being a proponent of cutting the cord and ditching cable TV, I’m also an avid Xbox gamer. Every gamer knows a fast and reliable internet connection is a must-have to avoid lag and the untimely Fortnite squad wipe. However, my biggest concern is the time it takes to download and install a new game. With many games weighing in at 50GB and Enhanced Xbox One X games like Halo 5 sized around 100GB, installing them can take hours even on a 50 Mbps Internet connection.
That’s why I’m excited to let you know about an amazing deal from Fios geared specifically toward Xbox gamers. Right now you can switch to Fios Gigabit Connection for $79.99 per month, w/ Auto Pay plus taxes, equipment charges and other fees, and receive a one year Xbox Live Gold subscription and your choice between two top multi-streamer games, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Sea of Thieves.
As if Fios Gigabit Connection $79.99 per month wasn’t already a great deal, here is a list of everything you receive with this deal:
- Internet speeds up to 940 Mbps download and 880 Mbps upload
- Standard setup charge is waived ($99 value when you order online)
- Xbox Live Gold 1 year membership. Already have a Gold Subscription? Fios will add a year to it.
- your choice of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS or Sea of Thieves on Xbox One
- If you’re stuck in a contract, Fios provides up to a $500 credit to help cover your early termination fee
With download speeds up to 940 Mbps, the nearly 5-hour wait to download a 100 GB game can be cut to under 20 minutes. Avoid waiting on long downloads and the in-game lag by signing up for this Fios Gigabit Connection online exclusive.

Why I use Verizon Fios
I’ve been using Verizon Fios Internet for nearly 5 years now and it’s the best Internet service I’ve ever used. It’s more reliable than the cable internet I’ve used in the past. In fact, I can only recall 2 unplanned Internet outages during my time with Fios and their top-notch support had me up and running after a phone call.
In addition to the outstanding support, the consistency of the internet connection speed I receive is a credit to the quality of their service. Every time I run a speed test, the delivered speed is right around what is promised. Sometimes it’s even a bit above. The same can’t be said about the speed fluctuations I noticed with Internet providers I’ve used in the past. If you are a gamer, a cord cutter, or both, you can’t go wrong with Verizon Fios.
