Verizon Fios internet costs between $50 and $80 per month, depending on the speed you sign up for. Internet equipment is included with the price, and there are no hidden fees or cancelation costs. What you get is ultra-reliable home internet with upload speeds that are just as fast as download speeds, with plenty of bandwidth to go around.
Our team of expert reviewers gives Verizon Fios a value score of four out of five. Its prices are at least reasonable and, at best, highly competitive at gigabit speeds. You may have to pay for professional installation unless you order online, but once you’re up and running we think you’ll be pleased with the overall value.
Most Verizon Fios customers are delighted with the price and say prices are reasonable, but a few say prices are outrageous when bundling with Fios TV. Similarly, most customers are very pleased with Verizon customer service, but we found a few complaints. Some even said they wish the price were lower but are still happy with the service overall.

Verizon Fios doesn’t charge the hidden fees you may find with other providers, and it’s a refreshing change. Even the $99 installation fee is skippable if you order online.

Verizon Fios has a variety of incentives aimed at getting you to switch to their home internet service. You can get either Xbox equipment or a gift card to Home Depot on any plan, with better equipment for higher-priced plans.
You will definitely get the best deals from Verizon if you add internet to an existing qualifying mobile phone plan, which could save you up to $25 per month on the home internet portion of your Verizon bill. You can also get live TV services from Verizon and, if you get both TV and internet, you can add home phone services for an additional $25 per month.
Canceling your Verizon Fios service is fairly simple. Since Verizon has moved away from service contracts, there are no early termination fees involved. Just cancel service, return your equipment, and you’re done.
Like the vast majority of major home internet providers, Verizon participates in the federal Affordable Connectivity Program for certain low-income households. You can get $30 off per month for either a fiber home internet connection or a standalone mobile hotspot.
