What Appeals Most To Your Family About Verizon FiOS!

Hey All!

So I just recently discovered Verizon FiOS and I’m considering getting it for our home. It’s not because I’m a loyal Verizon customer, as I have been with them through the good and bad times for more than 10 years now! Sheesh! I’m considering it because it has so many great and appealing features that include everything from how you watch your television, to internet, to phones. You can have everything work seamlessly together with Verizon FiOS.

These are just a few of the reasons that Verizon FiOS Appeals to me and my family.

Verizon is a service I can rely on and trust with my families needs. I know they can provide my family with the best possible customer service and programing that can be offered.

They offer Video on demand for kids programming as well as for adults which is amazing so you don’t even really need to know how to use a DVR or have a Tivo anymore to watch your favorite shows after you miss them. And some of the programming is Free which if it’s free it’s for me! This is also great because you can turn on your kids favorite program or movies at any time or any where in your house with Flex view, which I think is great! With Flex View, you can buy, rent and watch on-demand video titles on your FiOS TV, on your computer or on your mobile phone.

It also appeals to me because I NEED HIGH SPEED INTERNET! NEEDDDD IT! It essential to helping me work quickly and work on my blog effectively. I need my internet to be reliable and not just be super fast. I need it to work when I need it to work. FiOS doesn’t let up during “peak” hours like when the kids come home from school when some cable services slow down due to increased usage. So when the computers, ipods, ipads, and game systems are all connected I would love to have an internet connection that didn’t shut down or slow down because it is being used by so many devices.

I also love that it gives you the capability to connect socially to all your social Media sites like facebook and twitter right on your tv. You won’t need to get up and go to the computer room or go get your computer or ipad to connect anymore. I think it’s extremely appealing that I can just click a widget on my TV screen and connect.

I think these are all great reasons to consider Verizon FiOS and why I think it would be very appealing  to my family as we discuss making the change.
