Cox vs. Verizon Fios: Extra Fees and Contracts
Cox requires a one-year term agreement for its internet plans. Customers that end their contract early may face hefty early termination fees. Verizon Fios doesn’t require a contract, so you won’t be hit with early termination fees if you decide to cancel your service prematurely.
Cox offers both professional installation and self-installation for a fee. Customers who prefer to self-install their Cox equipment can consult the Cox Easy Connect box for instructions. Verizon Fios has a professional installation fee, but if you order a Verizon Fios plan online, you waive this fee.
Cox’s internet plans come with a monthly data cap of 1.25 TB, whereas Verizon Fios offers unlimited data for its plans. Those who go over the data cap for Cox will have to pay a $10 charge for every 50 GB over the data allowance.
