The investments have given Verizon’s customers improved data speeds and enhanced network capacity within the regions.
In addition, 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 2.1 million homes and businesses across New Jersey. Verizon has placed more than 22,000 miles of fiber-optic cables in New Jersey – enough to connect Newark to Camden and back 125 times.
