Why did your bill go up?
Your bill can go up because of one time charges/activities
One-time charges/activities include:
On Demand or Pay Per View Purchases
Purchase of equipment
Installation or Activation Charges for new services
These charges can be found under “Your One-Time Activities” on your online bill.
Promotional Discount Expired
There may be a promotional discount applied when you sign up for a contract. Often, these promotions expire, and you may see an increase in your bill.
Check your bill for the date your promotion will expire. Promotional Discounts can be viewed on your online bill or on the My Fios app under “Your Discounts”.
Partial Month charges when adding a service
Verizon bills one month in advance, so your first statement will include partial month charges for the current month, as well as charges for the following month. Monthly charges are prorated per the number of days you are billed during your 30-day billing cycle. When you make changes to your account following your service installation, (by adding or deleting services or packages, for example) partial month charges will apply as well.
Toll Calling (Long Distance, Regional and Local)
Depending on the type of service you have, you may be charged for making long distance, region and local calls.
If you don’t pay the entire amount of your bill, you’ll have a balance forward. These charges will be added to your next bill. This does not affect your current charges but the overall amount due will increase duo the carryover. Details on your carryover balance can be found at My Verizon or on the My Fios app under “Previous Period”.
Taxes and surcharges
Taxes and surcharges can vary depending on how many days are in the month. This may cause your bill to be slightly different each month.
