Shop at the Speed of FiOS: A Closer Look at Cyber Monday

cybermonday_IG_112012_thumb.jpgBack in 2010, Cyber Monday became the largest single online shopping day of the year in the U.S. Of course, that amazing feat was surpassed in 2011, and all projections for 2012 have sales for the day going through the roof. People are ready to celebrate the holiday season in a big way, as conservative estimates are predicting at least $1.5 billion in sales!


Since Verizon FiOS customers enjoy the fastest and most consistent Internet speeds available -- unlike cable company broadband that actually slows down when more of its customers are using it -- FiOS Internet users can take full and fast advantage of amazing Cyber Monday deals at their leisure. For popular items that sell out quickly, this can make the difference between a successful Cyber Monday and having to resort to the dreaded “Plan B.”


And, because FiOS Internet uses a Verizon-provided WiFi router, they have freedom-of-speed throughout your home. Connect your laptop, your tablet or your smartphone, wherever you wish, whenever you like. So while everybody else has to frantically search for deals, our customers can relax in their pajamas and sip a cup o’ joe while taking care of their holiday shopping lying in bed, lounging on the sofa, or at the kitchen table -- at the unmatched speed of FiOS.


This year, we’ve compiled a brief look at the history of Cyber Monday to get your savings juices flowing. In addition to loads of interesting facts and data about everyone’s favorite online shopping day, we’ve got a list of the best sites that will be collecting deals they find around the web, the most popular products of last Cyber Monday and more.


When it comes to FiOS, once you've got it, you get it. Nobody understands that like Verizon FiOS customers, and once you “get” Cyber Monday, you’ll be tracking down the best deals online like a pro. Now get shopping!


P.S. Don’t forget to check out our own Cyber… well… EVERYDAY deals on our FiOS Double Play and Triple Play bundles (psst… they make great stocking stuffers).

Hey I have FiOS 50/20 Quantum. Can't get GPON. How about a GPON stocking stuffer. Seems like FiOS would upgrade Washington DC Metro, or at least a few locations. I would Sign up on Cyber Monday!


I have had FiOS in Montgomery County, Maryland since launch here. No competition except for Comcast. Oh that's right, you are partners. So that blows that comment.:smileytongue:
