Our investment in Delaware's network infrastructure is an investment in the economic future of the state. We are differentiating ourselves in the marketplace by building superior networks and delivering innovative technologies - particularly in consumer broadband, business and government, and wireless.
From Wilmington to Dover to Seaford, consumers, businesses and government agencies in Delaware continued to benefit from Verizon's 2014 investment of more than $53 million in its industry-leading fiber-optic and wireline networks. In addition, Verizon Wireless invested more than $270 million in its Philadelphia Tri-State region, which includes Delaware, giving Verizon's customers improved data speeds and enhancing network capacity.

Fiber-optic networks strengthen communities, and last year Verizon continued deployment of its 100 percent fiber-optic network, with its FiOS TV and FiOS Internet services. At year's end, FiOS services were available to more than 220,000 homes and businesses across Delaware. Verizon has placed nearly 3,100 miles of fiber optics in Delaware – enough to reach across the country from Delaware to California.
Our infrastructure investment breaks down traditional technological boundaries, empowering people and businesses in Delaware 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.
