For a limited time, customers signing up with Verizon’s FiOS Internet bundle with a connection of 25 Mbits/15 Mbits or higher, FiOS TV Extreme HD, or FiOS Essentials will get the choice of a free Compaq Mini netbook or a Flip Ultra camcorder.
To get in on the deal you need to sign up for service by August 15 and activate by September 30. Verizon will send the device if you have no overdue bills for 60 days, while tacking on a one-year service contract and a $120 cancellation fee.
The second option is signing up for a triple broadband bundle of FiOS internet with a 15/5 Mbit or higher connection, FiOS TV Essentials and the Freedom Essentials voice service get a Flip Ultra camcorder for free or the option to buy the $299.99 netbook for a mere $99.99.
If you use DSL instead, the free netbook/camcorder promo can be enacted by customers signing up for “one-year, double- or triple-play DSL bundles that includes either the 3 Mbits/768 Kbits or 7.1 Mbits/768 Kbits service.”
Verizon’s 10.1-inch Compaq Mini netbook uses an Intel Atom with Windows XP. Verizon will be sending out $299.99 coupons redeemable at HP Home & Home Office, but users need to pay $50 of taxes and shipping.
