Verizon to discount bundles without landline phones

Verizon No Landline Bundle

Verizon will let customers see reduced rates on multiple services for the first time without requiring a landline, the carrier said on Friday. The Flex Double Play bundle will let the company's cellular users drop between $8 and $12 from their monthly rates if they also sign up for specific Internet-based services, including either the 3Mbps DSL connection, a 20Mbps FIOS fiber-optic plan, or FIOS TV. Faster Internet plans aren't qualified for the bundle.

The discount is a reflection that many users are depending solely on their cellphones for calling and dropping landlines entirely, Verizon says. AT&T began a similar but more modest discount last year that drops the price of service as much as $5 per month for a similar two-service pack.
