Verizon's major wireline infrastructure programs in 2013 included the 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 216,000 homes and businesses in Delaware. Verizon has placed more than 3,000 miles of fiber optics in Delaware – enough to stretch from Wilmington to Los Angeles.
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.
