Connecting California to the Broadband Future.

Our investment in California's network infrastructure is an investment in the economic future of the state. At Verizon, we are differentiating ourselves in the marketplace by building superior networks and delivering innovative technologies - particularly in consumer broadband, business and government, and wireless.

California’s consumers, businesses and government agencies continued to benefit from Verizon’s 2013 investment of more than $514 million in its industry-leading fiber-optic and Internet Protocol-based networks. [ Read the press release ]

Verizon’s major wireline infrastructure programs in 2013 included:

  • Continued deployment of the company’s award-winning, 100 percent fiber-optic FiOS TV and FiOS Internet services. At year’s end, FiOS services were available to more than 1.4 million California homes and businesses in Southern California. Verizon has placed nearly 16,000 miles of fiber optics in California – enough to stretch the length of the state more than 20 times.

  • Enhancing the FiOS Bandwidth Effect, which enables consumers and small businesses to harness huge amounts of broadband.

  • Delivering FiOS TV anytime, anywhere on a variety of devices.

Our infrastructure investment breaks down traditional technological boundaries, providing powerful solutions that enable people and businesses to connect however, whenever and wherever they want. This creates opportunities that are borderless and that bring great benefits to our customers, employees, suppliers and communities in the Golden State.
