NEW YORK – Residents and businesses in four Northeast cities are getting more options to keep them connected. Today, as part of one of the biggest network upgrades in our history, Verizon, is bringing new wireless home and business internet options that utilize 5G Ultra Wideband to residents and businesses in Newark and Trenton, NJ, Syracuse, NY and Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Verizon Home Internet is reliable and provides speeds fast enough to power all the connected devices in the home: smart TVs, tablets, laptops, phones, gaming consoles and more. There are no annual contracts or hidden fees. Plans start at just $25 per month with AutoPay and a select 5G mobile plan1 – an average annual savings of over $450 compared to Xfinity’s and Spectrum’s advertised, entry-level cable internet plans & one standard mobile line. Plus, with our price guarantee you don’t have to worry about surprise price hikes. The price is guaranteed for two or three years, depending on your plan.

Our 30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee makes switching easy. If for any reason you’re unhappy, cancel within 30 days and receive a refund of the service charge. We’ll also help cover the cost to switch with up to a $500 credit towards early termination fees2. Not a current Verizon customer? You can still get 5G Home Internet for just $50 per month with Auto Pay3.

“Residents and businesses in the Northeast have enjoyed the reliability and fast speeds of our Fios services, and now we’re excited to bring our 5G Home and 5G Business Internet services to more people in the area,” said Chris Flood, North East Consumer Vice President at Verizon. “This expansion will also provide our customers the opportunity to save on their home internet when they combine with select Verizon mobile plans.”
