Verizon has introduced FiOS TV in southern Manatee County, marking the second market in Florida to get the telco’s new fiber-fed video service. Temple Terrace was the first.
Initially, Verizon will deploy the service in an area of Manatee County bordered by University Parkway to the south, to neighborhoods north of the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. The telco will offer the service in other areas of the county as it secures additional franchise agreements.
Verizon has also secured video franchises in parts of California, Florida, Massachusetts, New York and Virginia, as well as a state-wide franchise for Texas.
