    Verizon High Speed Internet installation is a three-step process. First, you’ll install DSL filters on your phone devices (if applicable). Next, you’ll install your Router or Gateway. Then, you’ll install DSL software on your computer. After you order High Speed Internet, your Self-Install Kit, which includes your High Speed Internet Equipment, will arrive a few days before your Service Ready Date. Once your Service Ready Date arrives, you’ll install High Speed Internet.

    Important: Before you install High Speed Internet, make sure your Service Date has arrived. If you don’t know your Service Ready Date, visit the Order Status tool on the What’s Next Web site and enter your phone number and last name.
