You can’t escape offers for mobile and internet bundles these days—and Verizon bundles stand out among the best. If you’re a Verizon phone customer and you’re signed up for the carrier’s flagship cellular plan, you can get a $25 monthly discount on a Verizon Home Internet plan.
That means you’ll have fiber or 5G home internet for as low as $25 a month—that’s a killer deal considering that Verizon’s plans usually cost at least double that.
But how killer is this deal, exactly? Is this the best pick for budget users or simply one more perk from a provider that offers more perks than you can count? We took a deep-dive into Verizon’s internet and mobile bundle options to see what benefits you get.

Is it a good idea to bundle a Verizon phone plan with a Verizon internet plan?
It’s a great idea to bundle your Verizon internet and phone service, especially if you’re already a Verizon customer and have an unlimited phone plan.
It’s slightly tricky to actually get the deal—you have to be a phone customer before you get the internet plan. And you might not save as much money as you think, since Verizon’s Unlimited Plus phone plan is one of the highest-priced plans ever.
- Super cheap prices for Fios and 5G Home plans
- Excellent network coverage
- Tons of additional perks
- High prices on phone plans
- Confusing sign-up requirements (must be a current phone customer to get the discount)
- Limited availability for Fios fiber plans
What we like: You get a top-tier phone plan and top-tier internet service
Verizon has arguably the best network coverage among the three major cellular carriers. Its 4G LTE network is available across 70% of the country—including a lot of rural and remote areas—while its growing 5G network delivers superb speeds in many urban areas.
Verizon’s unlimited phone plans also come with a dump truck’s worth of extras—depending on the plan, you can get free subscriptions to Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN, discounts on hotspot plans, and/or lots more.
You also can’t go wrong with Verizon’s internet plans. Fios fiber internet gets you symmetrical Wi-Fi speeds and an incredibly reliable connection. Verizon’s 5G Home Internet option is a great cost-saver for the budget-minded since it gives you respectable speeds at a flat monthly fee with no data caps and no extra costs for equipment or installation.
But here’s the catch: Verizon’s unlimited phone plans are really expensive
Even with $25 off your internet plan, you’re still likely to pay a pretty penny for your internet and phone plans. That’s because the plans that qualifies you for the bundle discount is one of the most expensive phone plans out there. Combined with one of Verizon’s Fios mid- and upper-tier fiber plans, you may end up paying an average price for the two services, or even higher than average.
Beware the fine print: You need to be a current Verizon phone customer to benefit
According to Verizon’s website, the discount on Verizon Home Internet specifically applies to current Verizon phone customers. That is to say, you can’t order a phone and internet plan together to get the discounted internet plan, and you also can’t order the internet first and then get the discount after signing up for a phone plan.
When you’re an internet customer and you sign up for a mobile plan, you get a much lower monthly discount—just $5 or $10 per line, depending on your internet plan.
These technicalities add a wrinkle to Verizon’s bundle offers that we’re not too excited about: It seems all too easy to sign up in the wrong way and end up losing out on a key benefit. But just make sure you’ve got your phone plan secured before you sign up for your Verizon Home Internet plan, and you should be good.
Expert opinion: Get a prepaid plan instead if you’re on a budget
If saving money is your main concern, you might be better off skipping this bundle deal and getting a prepaid phone plan instead.
Prepaid phone plans don’t require an annual contract and usually cost much less than postpaid ones. When you sign up for Visible’s basic phone plan and pay full price for a Verizon internet plan, you end up paying $30 per month less than the official, discounted Verizon bundle bargain.
Verizon bundle deal vs. Visible phone plan
|Phone and internet bundle||Total price for combined plans||Internet speed||Monthly data||Order online|
|Unlimited Plus + Fios Internet 300/300||$104.99/mo.||300Mbps||50GB of 5G and 4G LTE (then speeds may be slowed)|
|Visible + Fios Internet 300/300||$74.99/mo.||300Mbps||Speeds may be slowed during network congestion||View Plans|
Visible is owned by Verizon, so you get access to the same 4G LTE and 5G coverage. You don’t get 5G Ultra Wideband and you get worse reception during times of network congestion, when Verizon’s main customers get priority treatment. You don’t get the same perks either. But your internet plan is exactly the same, and you save $360 every year.
Depending on where you live, you might also be able to find an internet plan for under $25 a month from one of Verizon’s cable competitors, like Xfinity or Astound Broadband.
