I have the triple play from Fios here. It's $99. After taxes I pay about $120 after taxes.

Can someone with Fios tell me how much the bill is after taxes (no extra pay-per-view, text charges, etc) Just the $99 Triple Play + taxes.

I want to have it set up when we arrive, the house is already wired for it.

Ours is 127.50 but I don't know if it is 'triple play'. Internet/home phone/cable w/DVR. We have iphones so we don't use them for cells. In Ohio, we paid $120 just for cable so this is a great deal for us!

I have the Verizon FiOS triple-play package @ $75/month pre-tax (I don't have a DVR or any of the other extras). After tax, my monthly bill comes to right at $100 per month.

For those who don't have it, it is a great deal (and no, I do not work for Verizon). Before getting it, I was paying $65/month for DirecTV and another $80 per month for Verizon DSL and landline. So I'm basically saving $45 per month - and getting faster Internet as a part of the deal.

FYI, if you are thinking about getting it, they will negotiate - when they quote you the price, start negotiating - they'll either cut the price or give you some special deals if you play hardball with them.

thanks for the info. I do have Fios now and LOVE them especially compared to Cablevision (on Long Island - they're the pits!) Anyway, I plan to just switch it over. Says it takes 24 hours so I will do it right before we leave to drive down. I was trying to figure out if we pay more taxes here in NY. If so I could get a higher package in FL and pay the same. Or if higher taxes in FL i may want to check out the other options. Also, I was thinking of getting Showtime for the last season of Dexter

Ask for specials for movie channel packages. You should get three months free.
