Introducing our Friends and Family discount

It’s a perk that only we get as V Teamers. Here’s what you need to know:

  • This discount is for our nearest and dearest who don’t currently have Verizon. It’s simple: You share. They save. As new customers, they’ll get some of the best pricing we have on Verizon Wireless and Fios.
  • Employees will get an email today with your unique code that can be shared. You can also find that code on the My Verizon app, About You or The Street.
  • You’ll get five redemptions for Mobile and another five for Fios that can be used until January 31, 2021.

Get ready to help your friends and family save on the best experiences and the best network. Check out more info on VZWeb and The Street.

Verizon Connect integrated dash cam

The Verizon Connect team helps companies with mobile work forces in many ways, including by connecting and tracking their vehicles and drivers, making them safer and more efficient.

One recent successful product for fleets is an integrated dash cam, which records driver behavior and then uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to automatically sift through the hours of footage and identify dangerous situations. Those insights help companies improve safety and training.

Drivers may initially be wary of the camera in the cab, only to find it serves as an advocate for their good habits and proves their innocence when criminals instigate accidents. The cameras have already saved fleet companies thousands of dollars by disproving fraudulent insurance claims.

Great work, team!
