Depending on where you want to purchase it the Verizon store site is $149.99 however you can purchase the Verizon firmware version from Amazon for $100 and from eBay for $45-$70 but make sure it’s not a Frontier firmware version.

 

you can do much better doing a google search on routers that are better and have external antenna versus the crappy Quantum router which has atrocious WiFi.

another point to ponder is Fios recently placed a security protection from McAfee which is messing around with customers internet. So you are better off using your own supplied router. Remember that $12 monthly rental fee is $144 a year or $288 for two years. So buy a better router now and save yourself the misery later.

The Fios web site now lists the price as $199.99. My question is have they just raised the price of the $149.99 router or is this a new improved model

Doubtful it is new and improved. I see from the following link that prices vary.

https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=fios+quantum+gateway+model+g1100&tag=googhydr-20&index=ap...

 

and yes I see the new price.

I would say just a price increase. Nothing new except McAfee updated protection on the router which you don’t need.
