How can I take advantage of this offer as an existing customer? I am currently on a 100/100 plan and pay $52.46 on no contract and supplying my own network. This is up from what I was paying a few months ago in the mid $30s after about a year of service now

Got shot down also (online chat)

I guess I could go the route of disconnecting service/starting service the same day, but I don't know if it's worth the effort.

Why don't you try disconnect the service and let another household member open in their name?

Yeah I am also wondering what the cost is after fees. I have the new ONT and I have a Verizon router I can use, so I am set there. Thanks!

I ended up opening a new account under my wife's name and have a setup date In place, once the account is active she said to call back and discontinue the initial account and they will do the switch on their end. It's as if the "new" account is the tenants moving into my place
Price is ~$64 with taxes and fees and no router rental fees

Did you do this on the phone, or online?

YMMV - when gigabit launched in my area for $69, I fought with phone and online agents trying to get the new customer price. Total waste of time, they were completely unwilling to budge. So I went online and scheduled a move... From my address, to my address. I scheduled it for a weekday, early morning, so I wouldn't be affected. Low and behold, it worked. Got the new customer pricing, and remoted to my server at home around lunch time and ran a speed test to confirm. Worked perfectly.

I switched from 50/50 to 100/100 a few months back, but I could never figure out the move to same address thing, maybe it was something you used to be able to do that you can't anymore. I signed up a household member and cancelled my account.

There was some convoluted process to prove residency that involved a phone call because their online form submission tool did not work at all in the app or on the website. I also had to call on installation day to finish the self-install.

Verizon is a mess. Every time I call there's confusion and/or the person sounds like they are in their mom's basement. All their processes are automated one-size-fits-all. They'll tell you to send back equipment when there is in fact nothing to send back or they'll say they are shipping equipment which ends up just being a self-install instruction pamphlet. They usually insist you use their gateway for installation, when you can just hook up your own router right to the ONT. The tech that did my original installation was the only Verizon person that had a clue.

I'm not sure, I never had an issue with them. The process I laid out up above worked for me roughly a year ago.

Unfortunately, I had to call to cancel my FiOS gigabit this morning. I'm moving in 3 weeks, and am stuck in a Comcast-only service area. That's already been a train wreck.

I was just fooling around with the move tool and I don't even see the 300/300 plan in the options. All the options available raise the price quite a bit (currently paying $39.99 for 100/100). Even downgrading and committing to a 2-year agreement increases it $20/mo.

Guys, unless you download large torrents or upload YouTube videos all the time you have absolutely no value in upgrading from 100mbps to 300 mbps. Increasing your download speed does not change the "reliability" of your internet in any way. It literally changes your DOWNLOAD speed. Ask yourself how often you download files that are bigger than 10 GBs because on 100 mbps Internet it only takes 800 seconds = 13 minutes and 20 seconds to download 10 GBs and if that is worth paying an extra $240 a year. It's not. Don't get caught into the trap from these companies trying to make you think you need "gigabit internet" to be cool. You only need 15 mbps download to watch 1 4K Netflix stream, so 100 mbps is plenty more than enough to support your entire family watching 4K video on different devices at the same time.

Again: HIGHER DOWNLOAD/UPLOAD SPEEDS DO NOT MAKE YOUR INTERNET "BETTER", they only affect the rate at which you can DOWNLOAD and UPLOAD things.
