Verizon mainly competes against cable providers like Xfinity, Optimum, and Cox. Xfinity and Cox are comparable in pricing, but offer far fewer channels. Optimum is the closest competitor to Verizon Fios TV in terms of what you get for the money, but the internet service is lacking compared to Verizon’s—and if you’re in Verizon’s market, you probably want its internet service. Compared to satellite TV providers DISH and DIRECTV, Verizon Fios TV offers a lot more channels, and doesn’t require a contract. We also love that there are no hidden fees.
Canceling Verizon Fios service is easy. With no contracts to worry about, you can just cancel your plan, return your equipment, and move on to your next provider.
There’s one other thing to keep in mind if you’re on the base Your Fios plan: you may need to step up to a higher package tier on other providers to get the same channel selection since Your Fios is customized to your preferences and may include channels that other base packages don’t.
