Verizon recently became the first European ISP to offer a free Google Stadia membership for customers. Today, Verizon is announcing a similar partnership with the game streaming service from Google.
Starting January 29, Verizon Fios (Verizon’s home-broadband service provider) will begin offering a Google Stadia promotion for new customers who sign up for Fios Gigabit. New customers will be eligible for a free Stadia Premiere Edition welcome kit with the Wi-Fi controller, a Google Chromecast Ultra, and three free months of Stadia Pro membership that offers game streaming up to 4K @ 60 fps.
Verizon Fios Gigabit packages start at $79.99 and includes a Wi-Fi 6 -compatible router, and includes one free month of YouTube TV. As a reminder, those on Fios Mix and Match plans bundled with TV qualify for a free year of Disney+ subscription.
Verizon is also excited to announce Stadia promotions for Verizon 5G Home customers soon.
Verizon is a bundled Internet access, telephone, and television service that operates over a fiber-optic communications network with over 5 million customers in nine U.S. states. Service is offered in some areas of the United States by Verizon Communications, while Frontier Communications operates licensed FiOS services in former Verizon territories across six states, using a nearly identical network infrastructure. Fios service began in 2005, and networked areas expanded through 2010, although some areas do not have service or cannot receive TV and phone service because of franchise agreements.
Verizon was one of the first major U.S. carriers to offer fiber to the home, and received positive ratings from Consumer Reports among cable television and Internet service providers.
