Make Moms Life Easier With Verizon FiOS

Do you ever feel like you could use an extra pair of hands just to get things done?  As a stay-at-home-mom of two young children, it seems that I'm always going somewhere or doing something.  Between transporting to and from school, errands and grocery shopping, after school activities, volunteering at school and taking the time for me by going to the gym.  Where can I get a little extra help?

Verizon FiOS is like having several little helpers right at your fingertips.  There to do exactly what you need, when you need it!  I think that we all can get a little excited about that.

Imagine being able to set your thermostat while on your way home, coming home to a nice warm house after being out in the cold all day.  Maybe you need to turn on your lights.  What about being able to keep your young children entertained with a movie on your cell phone when your errands and appointments are taking much longer than anticipated.  Maybe you need to catch up on the news of your favorite sports game that you're missing.  With Verizon FiOS all those things are possible and more!

While I don't actually have Verizon FiOS, my husband and I are talking about making the switch! Anything that can save us a little time is well worth considering.  With summer right around the corner and the kids being out of school, free time is going to be few and far between.  Maybe FiOS could make our time stretch just a little bit farther.

I just wonder if this technology might be smarter than I am!

Here are a few Verizon FiOS features:

Flex View: “Watch what you want, where you want” 
With Flex View you can buy, rent and watch on-demand video titles on your FiOS TV, on your computer or on your mobile phone.
Media Manager:
Using Media Manager, you can access digital photos, music files, Internet radio stations, home videos, Internet videos from certain web sites directly from your FiOS-connected TV.

TV Widgets:
Verizon FiOS features awesome TV widgets like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, allowing you to Tweet directly from your TV, using your remote while watching TV. Yes, with FiOS, you can watch Modern Family and Tweet about the scary but true similarities between your husband and Ed O’Neill. Or update your Facebook status with “Yes, the kids are FINALLY in bed!” and virtually high-five with your fellow moms---all directly from your TV.

FiOS Internet: “Internet as fast as it gets”
FiOS doesn’t let up during “peak” hours like when the kids come home from school when some cable services slow down due to increased usage.

In-home Agent:
In-Home Agent is a PC application that provides you with fast, easy solutions for common FiOS & High Speed Internet questions. It's 24/7 support at the click of your mouse!
