Is Verizon Fios internet good?

“Fios” may not be a real word, but Verizon’s fiber-optic internet service is legit—and fast. With download speeds peaking at 940 Mbps (megabits per second) for $89.99 a month, Verizon Fios internet leaves most of the competition in the dust.

The East Coast competition, that is: Verizon Fios internet service is currently available in only nine eastern US states. Like every other American internet service provider, Verizon hasn’t yet achieved full sea-to-shining-sea fiber coverage. But, if you can get it, we recommend signing up.

First things first, if you can get Verizon Fios internet, jump on it. It’s fast and reasonably priced.

Verizon Fios offers five plans, all fast and relatively cheap for fiber-optic internet. We like the top-tier Fios Gigabit Connection because its blazing download and upload speeds could handle all the users and devices a household could throw at it. Buffering begone!

For fiber-optic internet, Verizon Fios internet-only prices are on the lower end of the scale. If you’re looking for a compromise between monthly cost and speed, the middle plan, Fios Internet 500/500, is your best (and, yes, only) bet.

You’re in luck if you live in the New York designated market area, though. Depending on your location, you could qualify for slightly higher speeds at the same prices.

Compared to the competition, Verizon Fios internet plans are worth jumping on. Still, you might find just as good of speeds and prices from Xfinity and Spectrum.

Verizon Fios internet and TV packages and bundles

Package Price* Download speeds up to Channel count Details
Fios Gigabit Connection + The Most Fios TV $208.99/mo. 940 Mbps 425+ View Plans for Verizon
Fios Gigabit Connection + More Fios TV $188.99/mo. 940 Mbps 300+ View Plans for Verizon

*w/ Auto Pay + taxes & equip charges. Data effective as of post date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

Like its internet plans, Verizon Fios’s TV packages are surprisingly inexpensive, given their large channel counts. There’s even one (Your Fios TV) that can be customized to your preferences. Nice.

Verizon Fios Wi-Fi

Verizon Fios has a few different Wi-Fi routers and gateways to cover your home in Wi-Fi internet. Don’t worry about being overwhelmed with choices, though—the Verizon team will pick out the best modem for your area and service.

Renting a Verizon Fios router or gateway costs $18.00 a month, or you can buy the device outright for $399.99. Buying your equipment costs about the same as renting it for a year and a half. Or, if you have the Fios Gigabit Connection plan, your router comes included at no additional cost.

We recommend that, if you’ve got the cash, you play the long game. Go ahead and buy your Verizon Fios Wi-Fi equipment—it’s a stellar option that not enough providers allow.

Verizon Fios vs. Optimum, Xfinity, and Spectrum

There are many internet service providers that compete with Verizon Fios for your affection (and cash). Depending on where you live, the biggest competitor is probably Optimum, Xfinity, or Spectrum.

If you’re interested in a deal, Optimum and Xfinity internet plans cost about the same as Verizon Fios’s. Optimum’s gigabit plan is a little cheaper than Verizon Fios’s, and Optimum sometimes has flash deals if you keep an eye out for them.

Or if you’d like to bundle your internet service with TV, Xfinity has some great discounts on package deals. Xfinity doesn’t have the same huge channel lineup as Verizon, but it’s not too shabby.

On the other hand, Spectrum tends to cost more than Verizon Fios, unless you go with one of its slower plans. But you really shouldn’t—you deserve fast internet.

The big drawback to these Verizon Fios alternatives is that they’re all cable internet providers. Fiber internet is faster (especially regarding upload speeds) and more reliable, making Verizon Fios the best option, technologically speaking.

But if you’d like to learn more about how these providers compare, check out our Verizon Fios vs. Optimum and Verizon Fios vs. Spectrum reviews. We’ve got a full Verizon Fios vs. Xfinity review planned for the future, too, so check back here later for a link.

Final take: Is Verizon Fios internet worth it?

Verizon Fios’s fiber-optic internet provides a lot of speed for a little money—nothing to argue with here. Fiber-optic connections are the new internet gold standard, and Verizon Fios sweetens the deal by keeping its plans and pricing simple.

But it’s only a sweet deal if you live in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, or Washington, DC—Verizon Fios internet isn’t a nationwide service just yet. If you are in the right zip code, we say go for Fios.

Verizon Fios internet FAQ

Does Verizon Fios internet come with a contract or extra fees?

Unlike most internet service providers, Verizon Fios requires no annual contract; you simply pay month to month. No contract also means no potential early termination fees if you suddenly need to move or drop the service.

The Verizon Fios setup fee is $99—unless you order online. Then it’s free. Also, Verizon includes a modem/router with Fios Gigabit Connection service. Internet 300/300 and Internet 500/500 come with a monthly $15 modem/router rental fee.

Why isn’t Verizon Fios internet available in my area?

While the “backbone” of the internet (yes, the whole internet) is made up of fiber optics (microscopic glass strands that transmit data as pulses of light), most “last mile” connections that go directly to homes and businesses are still made up of old copper phone lines and coaxial TV cables.

Fiber-to-premises internet is an expensive but slowly growing infrastructure; currently, less than half of the US is covered by fiber. If your neighborhood isn’t hooked up yet, internet providers like Verizon Fios are probably planning fiber expansion in your area—but it won’t happen overnight.

These states currently have Verizon Fios fiber internet:

  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Virginia
  • Washington, DC

Can I bundle Verizon services together?

Verizon’s internet, TV, and home phone services can all be bundled in various configurations. You won’t necessarily get a discount in every case, but it’s at least convenient.

Does Verizon offer Wi-Fi for home?

The three Verizon Fios Wi-Fi plans cost between $39.99 and $79.99 a month and come with download speeds between up to 300 Mbps and 940 Mbps. Your Wi-Fi router or gateway rental will cost an additional $18.00 per month—or you can get it included for free with the Fios Gigabit Connection plan.

Can I use my own Wi-Fi router with Verizon Fios?

While you can use your own Wi-Fi router with Verizon Fios, there’s not much reason to. You have to use a Verizon Fios Gateway to connect with Verizon’s proprietary fiber technology, and that gateway already has a Wi-Fi router inside.

So unless the Verizon Wi-Fi router isn’t performing up to your standards, you might as well use both features of the two-in-one device you’re already paying for.
