Now It's Easier Than Ever for San Gabriel Valley Residents to Sign Up for Verizon FiOS, With Month-to-Month Pricing and 'Worry-Free Guarantee'

San Gabriel Valley residents who have considered upgrading to the most powerful video entertainment and ultra-high-speed broadband services available in the area - Verizon FiOS TV, FiOS Internet and FiOS Digital Voice - can now sign up for a FiOS triple-play bundle with flexible month-to-month pricing, no early termination fee and  the same price offered under a long-term contract.

Alternatively, customers who want to maximize their savings and enjoy predictable pricing for the longest period possible can opt for a two-year service agreement with 24-month price protection.

Both the month-to-month and two-year plans are covered by Verizon's new Worry-Free Guarantee.  As part of the guarantee, new FiOS customers with a two-year bundle can cancel their service within 30 days of activation without a termination fee, if they are not completely satisfied.

"We're making it as easy as possible for San Gabriel Valley cable customers to move up to the value-rich FiOS experience - more HD and video-on-demand choices with incredible picture quality, plus America's top-rated, consistently fast Internet service," said Kim Cochran, marketing director for Verizon in California. "We know that changing providers can sometimes be a difficult choice for some consumers, so we've created more flexible options to simplify their decision-making process. We're confident that consumers will love FiOS once they've tried it."

Verizon FiOS services are available to more than 180,000 homes in parts of 17 San Gabriel Valley cities and nearby unincorporated areas. (See city/Zip Code listing at end of news release.)

New FiOS customers can now get the base FiOS bundle month-to-month, with no term contract or early-termination fee, for $99.99 per month before taxes, fees and customer-selected service additions, such as set-top boxes and premium channel choices; or the new La Conexion bundle, which includes the best in English and Spanish programming, for $89.99.  New customers can save an additional $5 per month when ordering online at www.verizon.com.

New customers will also receive EPIX or the FiOS TV Movie Package, which features more than 40 channels including SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, THE MOVIE CHANNEL®, ENCORE® and FLIX® - all free for a year with a triple-play bundle and free for three months with a double-play bundle.  This matches the current FiOS TV Movie Package offer for new term-contract customers. 

The month-to-month and two-year term versions of the Worry-Free Guarantee also include: flexible dates and times for installation appointments; round-the-clock order status tracking at www.verizon.com/whatsnext; premium installation by Verizon technicians including home network setup and in-home demonstration; a follow-up satisfaction call; and 24 x 7 technical support by phone, at www.myverizon.com and through Verizon's exclusive In-Home Agent tool via the PC or TV.
