Verizon Fios Internet

Hey guys,
Been with SD for a long time and posted a ton of deals so hoping someone can help out.

Moving to Philadelphia. Want Fios over Comcast for internet and need only internet. Was hoping someone had a good deal. Trying to keep it as budget friendly as possible and have my own modem and router.

Thank you!

I actually don't know the market in Philadelphia (in RI) but I am in the same boat. Currently have Cox for the last year but have since been jacked up almost 50% but I was FIOS for the previous 6 years of 7.

The deals they are offering here for already wired houses is terrific if you can get it. $29.99 for first year 50/50 and $39.99 after that. Tell them you have your own FIOS router (even if you don't really) and then just play dumb when the installer gets there. Tell them that you want to use your own router and you must have gotten your lines crossed. Then the tech will have to switch your box over from coax to ethernet and I think Bob's your uncle. Cox does not use modems really. But you do have to use their router/modem thing if you are getting TV as well. Just internet, you're ok using your own router from what I'm told.

This is all info I've gleaned over the last month as looking to switch myself. Take it with a grain of salt. I'm literally already wired and I've just been trying to sign up for like 3 months and I can't get a straight answer from anyone. They lie and tell you straight up that FIOS "won't work" without their router - which is simply wrong from what a tech told me and what other forums have explained.
