Verizon FiOS is an offering by Verizon that includes Internet access, television, and telephone service. It operates using the fiber-optic network. Currently, this high-speed service has more than 5 million customers in the US. Verizon was among the first US careers to offer the ‘fiber to home’ service to the customers. It has received positive reviews and most of the customers are quite happy with the service. However, some customers have faced a few problems after signing up for the service. One particular problem that has been faced by those who have newly signed for the service, as well as those who have transferred their service to a new residence, including being unable to upload the proof of residency.
When you sign up for a new FiOS service or when you transfer your existing FiOS service to a new residence, you will be required by Verizon to give proof of residency. If you are signing up for the service at one of the FiOS stores, it is best to ask them about the requirements. The representative will let you know as to how you can send the proof of residence if it is required.

While most of the time the users can submit the proof online quite easily, sometimes there can be an issue and it can take you to a blank page. If you are facing such a situation you can try one of the following to troubleshoot the issue:
