THE HIGH-SPEED INTERNET REVIEW: A LOOK AT VERIZON’S NUMBER ONE CUSTOMER REQUEST
Today we are speaking about Verizon’s DSL internet service. Now, this service might be a bit more traditional than the fiber-optic one. It might also be a bit slower than all the other options Verizon has to offer, but it might just be worth it.
Let’s take a closer look at what you will get.
The starter plan is something everyone needs to know about. First off, everyone gets a free modem with their setup. However, the modem is available only by online purchase. It is available to you for less than $20 a month. How cool is that!
It’s being labeled as the sub-FIOS promotional alternative. This means it will be slower in speed and performance, but not by much. In fact, most customers seem very happy with it so far. Unless work or home requires the performance to be like a rocket ship, I doubt any of you will notice the difference. The upload time is about 384Bkps. The download speeds come in at less than 2.0 Kbps. This information is for all the tech geeks reading this out there.
The Power Plan and Turbo Plan offer considerably higher uploading speeds. Both come in at around 768 Kbps. The only difference between these two is with the downloading speeds.
The Turbo Plan has downloads speeds at 7.0 and the Power Plan has it at 3 Kbps. This again is for all the tech geeks out there. Now, this might not seem as good as what some of the others are offering right now. Compared to what used to be offered though, this will be a gold mine for most of you.
The Power Plan and the Turbo offer wifi connections anywhere at no additional charge.This means you get an extensive list of connections from anywhere. You will have to inquire about the starter package. This option might vary.
You get with each package extensive email listings. You get incredible web support 24/7. You have two options with security. You can invest in the security suite for a low monthly charge. You can also invest in high-quality firewall and malware.
It’s up to you which way you go. It’s recommended though that you do the one-time fee for the malware and firewall. This will take away having to do monthly payments.
When it comes to the specifics of every plan and option, you will have lots to choose from. Every level is based on the wants and needs. Just pick out which level of want and need is your own.
THE INSTALLATION PROCESS
There are two options with this one too. You can do it all yourself. It will certainly save time and money. It will save hassle waiting for the tech guy to come out and do it all. If you are skilled enough to follow the instructions and do it all yourself, I say go for it.
The other option is for you to have one of the techies come out and do it. There are some benefits to doing this. One of which is having it installed correctly the first time around. The other one is the potential for coupons.
Look at the different sites online, there are usually some coupons floating around to help out with the installation. You can also give the company a call and ask. Sometimes the discounts are not so readily advertised.
When it comes to Verizon DSL packages and promotions and options there is something for everyone. It doesn’t matter if the plan is the starter or the turbo, there will be a perfect fit for you. Call Verizon FIOS for special promotions up and check out the availability of the region and specific plans and packages. Remember, not all areas will have the same options. This is why you have to ask.
