Because of a change in my life circumstance, I need internet access only in my home. ( Have cell phone and no tv services required) My Verizon contract recently expired and now my bill has gone up by $35.00 per month. I have been a long-term Verizon customer and have called for assistance but basically am told there is nothing they can do about it.
I am a senior citizen and would like to know other suggestions. Please help.
The problem is they only give good deals on bundles - Phone, internet, and TV. One tactic you can use (if you have an unlimited data plan on your cell phone) is to turn it into a "hotspot" then you can get on the internet from a tablet, PC or laptop as long as they have wireless capability. Please list yor cell phone type and data plan if you want in depth ideas.
Welcome to the forum!
Thank you for your suggestion Jose - Unfortunately, my cell phone is a throw back to the early inception of cell phones ... it is a flip phone and I do not have a data program at all; And it is a Verizon product/service as well.
Thanks for trying to find a solution. I really appreciate it.
Another idea would be to look into the 3/1 Mb/s plan that I have. It is not advertised on the site as far as I know, but may be worth a call to customer service. I have the bare minimum phone plan (it is on the FIber network) and FIOS internet and only pay an average of $40 / month. Note I am not a heavy internet user (email, watching TV online via websites, NO gaming) and am very happy with this plan. If I have more than 2 devices on at once slowdowns do happen but I rarely do this. Hope this helps, J
Look into what JOSE mentioned above since FiOS is hands down better if you can get it, but it's very unlikely that you're going to be able to get standalone DSL from Verizon. Verizon quit offering Standalone DSL a long time ago, and the only way to get DSL without a landline from them now is to order DSL through a reseller. DSLExtreme, MegaPath, Cavalier, and some other resellers are notable.
Also, if you use any significant amount of data for Internet, avoid using mobile phone Internet. That's going to cost you if you start blowing up your data limit. Good move sticking with the flip phone on that note, for that exact reason.
Some other options you have too, is to downgrade a landline to lifeline service only, which should bring the bill down quite a bit, but satisfy Verizon's requirement for a landline. Otherwise, you may want to also take a look at your local Cable company. Many advertise only their bundled packages, but most will be happy to sell you just an Internet package, although it tends to cost a little more than DSL.
