Verizon FiOs: The First to Offer Fiber Optics at Home

Verizon FiOS is a bundled high speed internet, telephone, and digital TV service offered by Verizon Communications over fiber optics cable. The company was the first U.S major service provider to offer the fiber optics services at home starting 2005. They received a positive rating from the Consumer Reports for cable and internet service providers.

Verizon FiOS began in 2005. The company planned to extend the availability of FiOS throughout the United States. The Wall Street Journal in 2006 speculated that Verizon Communications was planning to offer the sale of the traditional telephone division as part of their strategy to expand into broadband and wireless technologies.

In July 2009, there have already been around 15.5 million locations with FiOS which is about 34% of all the households under Verizon wireless network.  With the purpose of expanding the service, a deal with Frontier Communications was announced in May 13, 2009. The deal was that Frontier Communications would acquire all of Verizon's local wireless operations in some States including Idaho, Arizona, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Ohio, South Carolina, Oregon, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and Washington. Rural parts of California adjoining Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon were also included. These areas would see little FiOS deployment as Verizon itself would have to focus on its core FiOS areas. This completed deal with Frontier Communications expected that 70% of its overall network footprint would be serviced by the end of 2010.  

The service coverage expansion of Verizon FiOS internet and cable television services made notable success. They were able to keep millions of subscribers up to date with the latest advancements in the internet and cable television communications. Verizon FiOS have reached many family and home providing entertainment at its finest state. The service and product are offered online so many people can access it easily and conveniently.
