Verizon: Investing in the State of Delaware

Originally known as the Diamond State Telephone Company, we have provided telecommunications service to Delaware citizens for over a century.

Today, in addition to telephone service, we are a major provider of cable television, internet access and other hi-tech services in Delaware. 

Although our name and suite of services has changed over the years, our commitment to quality service and support of our communities is a constant.
