How Does Fios Work?
Fios is a broadband service from Verizon that uses fiber optic cables to provide high-speed internet and television service. Your Fios router is a hardware device that helps keep your Fios system running smoothly.
When you first sign up for Fios, Verizon will update your router with the latest firmware and settings. This ensures your router is always up-to-date and configured properly for your Fios network. If there are any updates available for your router, Verizon will send you an email notification and guide you through the installation process.
Your router connects your home network to the internet and manages traffic between devices on your network. It also serves as the gateway to your home TV entertainment system. So it’s important that your router is functioning properly so you can enjoy all of the benefits of Fios.
