BASKING RIDGE, N.J., July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- No data caps, no extra fees and no annual contracts. Verizon created unmatched value by breaking the TV and home internet bundle, giving customers fast, reliable internet and content the way they want it with Mix & Match on Fios. Now riding a wave of awards for delivering the fastest Internet in America1, Verizon is putting more power into consumers’ hands with new Mix & Match on Fios features starting July 22 that offer more value for what they need and options to choose what they want.

“Mix & Match broke all the rules when we gave customers more choices for getting reliable internet and the content they love, the way they want it, but that was only the beginning,” said Frank Boulben, Chief Revenue Officer, Verizon Consumer Group. “The past year has changed the way we live, work and play, and now we're giving Fios customers the flexibility to stay connected and entertain comfortably in more places throughout their home, with no data caps or surprises.”

Starting July 22, customers can sign up for these new features that offer more flexibility for connecting to the internet, watching TV or calling friends and family.

Whole-Home Wi-Fi: working from home in all kinds of places

Fios delivers the fastest internet in America, according to PCMag’s speed tests1, with no data caps and upload speeds up to 25x faster than cable2. The new Whole-Home Wi-Fi offering makes the Fios connection even stronger where you need it the most. It’s the best remedy when floorplans create problem areas where the Internet may not be as reliable.

A router and network extender are included with Whole-Home Wi-Fi when customers select a Fios Gigabit Connection plan. Customers can run the home Wi-Fi health check to discover potential Internet dead zones and, if necessary, use the extender to boost Wi-Fi signal strength into more areas of thehome. With the opt-in Home Network Protect offering parental controls to guard against online threats, Whole-Home Wi-Fi improves the Internet experience to meet remote and hybrid work demands3.

Parents can watch live sports events on the Fios box in the living room while kids watch cartoons and teens watch comedies on connected TVs in their bedrooms. With Fios TV One enabling more flexibility, Fios TV users can more easily place TVs in the kitchen, on the back patio or other areas of the house.
