Bundle Up for Big Savings
A friend of mine recently asked me to take a look at her monthly phone and cable bills to see if there was a way she could save money. Like most people, her TV, Internet and phone services were all billed separately and, in her case, the bills came from three different providers.
Having reviewed my own TV and home phone services just a few short months ago, I knew it was going to be easy to find some savings but even I was shocked at how much she was paying. As her kids had grown older, their demands for high-speed Internet and additional TV channels had grown with them. As a result, all her bills were an expensive list of add-ons and premium features which added up to hundreds of dollars a month.
Luckily for my friend, she lives in one of the growing number of areas in the U.S. that are served by Verizon FiOS. With FiOS Double Play packages (phone and Internet) starting at just $79.99 a month and FiOS Triple Play packages (Phone, Internet and TV) starting at $89.99 a month, she will soon be realizing savings of well over $1,000 per year.
As more and more of us invest in smartphones and other mobile devices for our voice, data and entertainment needs, we are looking for ways to save on our expensive home-based solutions. One of the best places to start is by getting rid of our traditional home phone and switching to Verizon FiOS. Most people will be surprised to discover that the monthly cost of a FiOS Double or Triple Play option is less than they are paying just for their home phone – and that’s before you figure in the unlimited nationwide calling you get with FiOS.
With both the Double Play and Triple Play bundles, you can get the FiOS home phone solution and high-speed Internet access. Verizon will also include a high-speed wireless router with both options at no additional cost.
But perhaps the biggest savings arise when you factor in FiOS TV. The FiOS TV Double Play (including Internet) and Triple Play (Phone and Internet) options include over 210 TV channels, with 55 or more in HD. There is also access to the Verizon FiOS On Demand library with over 40,000 available titles, many of them free of charge.
So whatever you home communication and entertainment needs might be, it’s time to start bundling up. FiOS will deliver everything you need for a warm and money-saving winter!
