Verizon survey finds 51M Americans don't know what they pay for Home Internet
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A survey commissioned by Verizon found 51 million Americans don’t know how much they spend on their home internet – and those who do estimate paying an average of $137 per month1 – or more than five times the price Verizon offers. With rising gas, food and home utility prices forcing Americans to find ways to save, Verizon is helping customers by offering Home Internet for just $25 per month2 with no promotional price creep – a fraction of what they think they’re currently paying. That’s home Internet for less than $1 per day per month.
“Now more than ever, it’s important to stretch your dollars and taking stock of your phone and Internet bills to see where you can save is a great start,” said Frank Boulben, chief revenue officer of Verizon Consumer Group. “Consumers should know they don’t need to be locked into one expensive Internet provider. Verizon Home Internet is a new option offered around the country at an incredible value, plus all the perks that go along with being a Verizon customer.”
