High-Speed Internet Isn’t a Luxury Anymore
Act now to get blindingly fast internet just in time for new Game of Thrones season
Everyone wants fast internet. But does everyone really need it? And at what cost?
Most adults (65%), according to a report by the Pew Research Center, say having high-speed internet at home is essential. We need it to pursue job or educational opportunities. We need it to research health information. And of course, we really, really need it to binge-watch our favorite shows. But the speed we need traditionally has come with a substantial price tag.
Not anymore. Verizon is introducing its new Fios Gigabit Connection, the most powerful internet connection yet. We’re talking seriously fast — up to 940/880 megabits per second (Mbps), which is almost 20x faster than what most people have now. And it’s strong enough to power 100 devices at once, so we can stream, share and do more of everything we love at incredible speeds.
Even more important, the cost of the service is only $69.99 per month (with no annual contract) depending on availability. This puts truly high-speed access within reach for many more Americans.
Two years ago, former U.S. President Barack Obama called high-speed access a necessity, not a luxury. And in an address to the United Nations, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called it “a basic human right, like access to health care or water.”
Today, the Fios Gigabit Connection is making this necessity/basic human right much more affordable. And remember, Game of Thrones premiers on July 16.
