Verizon Fios Costumers 300 Mbps Free Upgrade
« on: November 29, 2020, 01:36:12 AM »
For those on the 200Mbps plan canceling and upgrading to 300Mpbs should be free in most areas. (Might include a $100 GC)

I know someone who just called and got upgraded. No need to cancel.

Perhaps to get the $100 GC?

I just spoke to a Verizon rep, this deal is targeted to about 20 zip codes. Unfortunately mine isn't one of them

Worked for me
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.

I've done this for many business accounts, and the same should apply for residential. Verizon has different tiers depending on the area, but regardless the lowest tier will always be the same price. It doesn't matter if the lowest speed is 75/75, 100/100, 200/200, or 300/300. All you need to do is call them and ask to be upgraded to whatever the new lowest tier is and it won't increase your monthly cost.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Didn't work for me. But they were able to upgrade me from 100Mbps to Gigabit for just $10 more per month plus the $100 GC. So almost free. Glad I called. Thanks!

Now ask them to downgrade you back to the lowest tier.

Called them, very nice CS rep, got upgraded from 100mbps to 300mbps (I don't think I will notice the difference) and lowered my bill to 39.99. I had to switch to debit card though.

The only time you’ll notice the difference is when transferring large files over the internet (or torrenting) assuming the source/destination also has equivalent bandwidth.

It helps for regular use especially when there are multiple devices. The higher the original mbps the higher your connection will be at far distances as well.

In addition for uploading I find it very noticeable.

Is this with FIOS where the upload and download are the same, or cable where the upload is much slower than the download?
