Verizon gets Phili
February 10, 2009
Philadelphia has become the latest big city to approve a video franchise for Verizon’s FiOS TV fiber-supported service. The City Council voted unanimously to grant the telco a 15-year franchise with the expectation that Verizon will roll out the service citywide over the next seven years. Verizon said it expects to begin offering FiOS to select city residents within a year.
