This deal is only available through this online offer page

What is Fios
Fios is a fiber-optic communications service that offers Internet, TV, and Telephone to residential customers living in select areas of New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware and Washington D.C. They are helpful to cord-cutters as they offer an affordable fast internet connection without having to bundle it with TV or telephone service.
Fios Internet Price
While Fios Internet deals change from time to time, the last time I checked the webpage I noted above was offering 100/100 Mbps internet for $39.99 per month, plus taxes, equipment charges, and other fees.
Furthermore, they provided an estimate of what my bill would look like before I signed up. I’ve had previous dealings with cable companies that didn’t explain many of the added fees and expenses. The bill I received from Fios was as expected.
Fios Internet Support
First, let me say that I can only remember 2 instances I needed to use support, and one of those was due to a lightning strike. That’s how dependable the service has been. As cord-cutters, we rely on internet access more than most. Ensuring reliable internet service is critical.
The times I’ve needed support, the techs on the other end of the line were knowledgeable. Fios got me to the right level of support in a timely manner so I wasn’t wasting my time on the phone. They‘ve even troubleshot my issue over social media so I could multitask while my problem was resolved. My support experience has been a night and day difference when compared to my previous cable internet provider.
