Verizon Expands Fios Service to Boston Neighborhoods

New England Council member Verizon recently announced it will offer its Fios service in some neighborhoods in Boston, MA.

Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh recently announced that announced the City of Boston, also a NEC member, signed a license with Verizon allowing them to bring Fios to Dorchester, the Dudley Square neighborhood of Roxbury, and West Roxbury. Residents and businesses in these neighborhoods can now sign up for the fiber-optic phone, cable, and internet service. Verizon and the City of Boston expect Fios will be brought to additional neighborhoods in the near future.

“Boston will continue to grow and thrive, and Boston’s residents need fast, reliable communications services built on the latest technologies,” said Mayor Walsh. “I look forward to working with Verizon to bring more choice and upgraded technology to Boston’s residents and businesses.”

“Just eight months ago we announced that Fios was coming,” said Ken Dixon, leader of Verizon’s consumer landline business. “This speedy launch is only possible because of the cooperation and partnership between the City of Boston and Verizon at every level. The winners are Boston residents.”
