  • Reading time:2 mins read

Verizon announced it’s offering its high-speed Fios Forward internet service to even more qualifying customers. The internet service is available to qualifying households with financial assistance that brings the price as low as $19.99/month.

Verizon Fios Forward is now available to new and existing customers who qualify for the Lifeline government assistance program.

This
is a big step in making fast, reliable internet available for low income
households and supports the multi-user
demands of at-home learning and working remotely, something greatly needed now
more than ever.

“Our guiding principle is that we create the networks that
move the world forward. Far too many families will be left behind if their home
Internet can’t keep pace with today’s demands for learning and work,” said
Frank Boulben, SVP-Consumer Marketing & Product at Verizon. “We know the
impact connectivity has on advancement, so we’re extending Fios Forward to
support digital inclusion and help create opportunity with affordable access to
high-performing broadband Internet.”

To be eligible, new and existing Fios customers must qualify for Lifeline to enroll in Fios Forward. Eligible customers can then sign up for a Mix & Match Fios Home Internet plan with total savings of up to $20 per month. Plan options include:

  • Fios
    200/200 Mbps (300/300 in NYDMA) for $19.99/mo

    Mbps (500/500 in NYDMA) for $39.99/mo
