About Verizon Virginia

Verizon is a leader in delivering broadband and other wireline and wireless communication innovations to mass market, business, government and wholesale customers. Verizon's service territory in Virginia stretches from the densely populated areas of Northern Virginia, the greater Richmond region and Hampton Roads to rural Southside and Southwest Virginia.

Verizon Wireless offers cellular service in many markets throughout the Commonwealth, while Verizon Enterprise is a leading provider of advanced communications solutions to large government agencies, major corporations, local municipalities and educational institutions.  Verizon is one of the state's largest employers.

In each of the past several years, Verizon Virginia invested hundreds of millions of dollars in its wireline telecommunications infrastructure to keep pace with the fast-changing technological needs of our customers.
