Verizon’s High Speed Internet DSL service is generally available outside major metro areas throughout the Northeast, including states such as District of Columbia, New York, and Pennsylvania. Verizon’s High Speed Internet is the company’s alternative to its Fios service in areas where it has phone line network coverage but hasn’t yet built fiber to subscriber addresses directly.
Verizon High Speed Internet Service Overview
|Best features||Things to consider|
DSL, or digital subscriber line, is essentially internet service sent over telephone wires. These are the same twisted copper lines that carried analog phone service and dial-up internet years ago. The difference is that DSL uses a transmission technique and hardware that allows for much higher bandwidth and the line’s ability to be “shared” between voice and internet service.
|Plan name||Download speeds||Starting price||Data cap|
|Verizon High Speed Internet||Up to 15 Mbps||$40 per month||Unlimited data|
DSL is rarely the first option potential subscribers choose when faster connection types such as cable or fiber internet are available, but, in many areas, DSL is the better alternative to costly or slow connections such as satellite and dial-up. If fiber or cable internet is not yet available in your neck of the woods, then there’s a good chance DSL is. Type in your address below to see if Verizon High Speed Internet is an option for you.

Verizon High Speed Internet Speeds
Dial-up internet delivered download speeds well below 1 Mbps, but DSL from Verizon can provide upwards of 15 Mbps in many areas. For many Verizon High Speed Internet customers, data travels over old copper lines for only a short time before switching over to a future-proofed fiber-optic line, which then ferries data to the internet at large. The maximum download speed available for you will depend on your specific address, since speeds vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.
Verizon High Speed Internet vs. Verizon Wireless
Among its many services, Verizon offers wireless and home internet service, plus mobile phone sales. Verizon’s wireless service is available nationwide, while its high-speed internet DSL is primarily available in the northeastern United States. You may want to consider bundling the services together since Verizon often offers discounts for purchasers of both internet and wireless services.
