Consumers interested in adding broadband service for their home computing platform can now do so for as little as $14.99 per month, gaining a better Internet experience for less money, with no worries about clogged networks or exceeding monthly dial-up time limits.
Verizon has introduced two new price tiers for both its stand-alone, unbundled High Speed Internet service and for so-called "dry-loop connections," which are connections without voice service. No annual plan contracts are required, and prices are good for one year. When ordered online, customers save $5 on the monthly price for any price point, and also receive a free wireless router - a $34.99 value. The new price tiers are effective immediately.
Stand-alone service prices are:
500 Kbps to 1.0 Mbps - $19.99 ($14.99 online)
Either 1.1-3 Mbps, 3.1-7 Mbps or 7.1-15 Mbps - $34.99 ($29.99 online)
Customers are required to have a Verizon landline voice plan for these price tiers. Enhanced High Speed Internet service will be provisioned at the highest optimized speed available to that customer.
Dry-loop (without voice service) prices are:
500 Kbps to 1.0 Mbps - $29.99 ($24.99 online)
Either 1.1-3 Mbps, 3.1-7 Mbps or 7.1-15 Mbps - $44.99 ($39.99 online)
Enhanced High Speed Internet service will be provisioned at the highest optimized speed available to that customer.
Additionally, customers who order Enhanced HSI service, whether stand-alone or dry loop, have access to Verizon Wi-Fi at no additional charge, allowing them to connect to Wi-Fi hot spots offering access in airports, hotels, bookstores, coffee shops and more.
Modem or router, activation and shipping charges apply (router charge is waived when ordered online).
