Verizon has shed more light on where it will next build out fiber networks to support its “FiOS” platform.
The latest additions will include the Westchester and Rockland communities of New York, and areas of Northeast Indiana. Verizon earlier this week announced it would build fiber out to areas of Rhode Island, as well.
Overall, Verizon expects to pass 3 million homes and businesses with fiber-to-the-premise technology by year-end. In addition to New York and Indiana, the company has already started to build FTTP networks in parts of California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
Initially, Verizon will offer a suite of voice and data services, with future plans that will include video.
On the data end, the company is offering three different tiers: 5 Mbps down/2 Mbps up for $34.95 per month (when bundled with voice service); 15 Mbps/2 Mbps for $44.95 per month; and 30 Mbps/5 Mbps for $199.95 per month.
