Verizon has created new options for customers to personalize their FiOS service bundles; those options include a set of broadband tiers and channel packages that increase in price in $5 or $10 increments.

Previously, consumers were limited to the Internet speeds and number of TV channels assigned to specific FiOS bundles and price points, Verizon explained.

Subscribers could start with broadband at a 15 Mbps downstream/5 Mbps upstream plan. Bumping that to 25 Mbps/25 Mbps would cost $5; bumping that to 35 Mbps/35 Mbps would be another $5.

On the video side, subscribers can move from the standard FiOS TV service to the next tier, with 324 channels (80 HD) to a tier with 391 channels (more than 100 HD) for $10.

Customers can also choose combinations of $5 and $10 increments added to the monthly starting price of $99.99 to create a bundle that costs anywhere between that price and $129.99.

A discount of $10 is also available to new customers who order triple-play bundles online.

"For some customers, broadband Internet speed is more important than a lot of TV options; for others, robust TV rules the household; and some customers want it all," said Mike Ritter, Verizon's chief marketing officer for consumer and business services.
