Making the Switch to Verizon FiOS

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post as a part of a campaign I’m doing with Verizon FiOS in Philadelphia. #FiOSPhilly

Verizon FiOS has been around for a while, but yet many have been reluctant to make the switch. Why? Probably because we believe the myths that it could be seen as a hassle, more expensive, or even exclusions of Comcast channels! But let me start by saying, ALL of that is wrong!!!! Completely Wrong.

Like everyone else, I originally believed the myths (all of them), until 3 days ago when I decided it was time to make the switch. With only a few days in, I am already excited and happy I made the change. Verizon not only beat my Comcast bill by $5 per month; but they also had a special that gave me a $400 visa gift card for a 2 year agreement. You might be wondering why someone would commit for 2 years when never using the new service. Well, if you do not like the service, cancellation is $10 for each month you have remaining on your contract. So in an absolute worst case you make $160 for your woes.

From 2 days in, I am pretty sure the cancelling option will not be a factor. The experience thus far is really amazing; yesterday, I was able to stream live from my iPhone and FiOS app, the Phillies afternoon game with no issues. Whats even better is that we have a guest bedroom with no cable box, but an Apple TV. Looks like even the guest will have cable as they can Air Play to the Apple TV. I will be sure to continue to document my experiences with FiOS, as I am finally looking forward to watching NFL RedZone all season on mobile.

Stay Tuned!! #FiOSPhilly
