Verizon Enhanced Communities

Another announcement from Verizon today about a business unit focusing on MDUs.

From the press release:

“Verizon Enhanced Communities recently launched a nationwide sales campaign to develop new agreements with property owners for access and service delivery. More than 57,000 units were contracted for in just six months last year.

“Verizon Enhanced Communities is committed to taking Verizon’s overall broadband strategy right into the homes and apartments of a broad customer base, and we’ll do that through agreements with property owners and managers who see the value in a differentiated communications connection,” Eric D. Cevis, vice president in charge of the business unit, said.

Verizon’s FiOS Internet Service offers data speeds of up to 30 megabits per second, and its FiOS TV service offers a series of rich service bundles, which may include up to 24 high-definition TV channels that exceed the value offered by many cable TV providers both in terms of variety and price.”

  1. I cannot wait to get FiOS here in New Jersey where our only choice is Comcast–bleck. I hope the municipal governments get their acts together and realize that competition is good for everyone (except the current monopoly strangling the market.)

  3. If this will increase competition, improve service, and drive down prices, I’m all for it, whether in Jersey, PA, Alaska, whatever. FiOS can level the playing field once more…

  5. Wow, eec is so excited he posted twice! I, too, am looking forward to the new services we will all enjoy when we cut through the local bureaucratic red-tape and allow companies like Verizon to expand their services more quickly and efficiently. I also agree that monopolies are stifling innovation (what are monopolies for?) and its time for our municipalities to quit participating in the charade.

  6. I’m looking to move to the Dallas area and the best part is that when I get there I’ll probably be able to get FIOS instead of having to deal with the crappy cable I have now. I’m sick of the rising costs and low quality I get from my local cable monopoly. Let’s all hear it for cable franchise reform!
