FiOS Internet

Connecting a netbook to your wireless home network

What is a netbook computer?

A netbook computer is a smaller version of a laptop or notebook computer. They are characterized by their smaller size, lighter weight, less computing power, and lower price tags than a laptop. Netbooks often don't have CD or DVD drives and are more dependent on web-based applications.

You can take advantage of the portability of your netbook computer to connect to thousands of Verizon hotspots available through the Verizon Wi-Fi service. Verizon Wi-Fi is a free service with select FiOS Internet plans.
