Press Release

08/24/2022 – NEW YORK – Verizon today announced that college students can get Fios, our award-winning, blazing fast fiber optic network, starting at just $20 per month with Auto Pay and select 5G mobile plans. As colleges and universities continue offering students virtual options for classes – and some students admittedly waiting until the wee hours of the morning on term papers – reliable and affordable home internet shouldn’t be a concern.

“College is the first time many students live on their own and the first time they have to make decisions about choosing an internet service, which is why we’re offering them super fast, super reliable service on the 100% fiber-optic network at an incredible price,” said Nina Bibby, senior vice president, consumer segment marketing at Verizon. “With the costs of attending college at an all-time high, it’s important for students to know that they have a new choice for internet and most important: that they don’t need to sacrifice quality to save.”

Starting today, college students enrolled at an accredited degree-granting public or private university or college in the Fios footprint have access to Verizon’s award-winning fast and reliable home internet starting at just $20 a month with Auto Pay and select 5G mobile plans – all on the network American relies on – with no data caps, no annual contracts, no extra fees, no equipment charges, and the price is the price, guaranteed for two years. So, as they get settled into the academic year, they can ditch cable and save with Verizon Home Internet.

This is yet another example of Verizon’s focus to accelerate national broadband adoption through our 5G, fiber and LTE home internet offerings.

Actively enrolled college students who are new Fios internet customers are eligible for the Students Offer with up to $10 off a month. Existing Verizon mobile customers adding Fios internet can also save on their internet bill.

Customers must verify their enrollment at an accredited degree-granting public or private university or college and the offer allows for one year of the applicable discount; after that, the student must reverify their student status to keep the internet discount. Visit for more information.
