Verizon has sweetened its Fios Gigabit Internet offering by tacking on a free year of Netflix premium.
New customers are eligible for the offer when they sign up for Fios Gigabit Connection Internet or Fios Gigabit Connection Triple play with a 2-year agreement. Existing customers can also get in on the offer if they renew their current term agreement.
For those who already have a Netflix subscription, Verizon will still cover cost of Netflix’s premium tier for 12 months.
Netflix recently upped its prices, with the highest tier now costing $15.99 per month, so the Fios deal equates to about $192 in value.
Netflix’s top tier allows four concurrent streams, and downloads on up to four devices. It also features HD and UHD quality where available.
Right now Verizon is offering its Fios Gigabit connection service (up to 940/880 Mbps speeds in select areas) to new customers for $80 per month with Auto Pay.
In the fourth quarter Verizon added 54,000 Fios internet subscribers, though the operator has not disclosed how many customers are taking its gigabit internet offering.
The service provider has been heavily focused on its wireless business, with mobile 5G services promised this year. In October, Verizon launched its fixed wireless 5G home broadband service in four cities.
