About Fiber to the Premises (FTTP)
Verizon is the first company in the telecom industry to use fiber on a widespread basis to connect homes and businesses directly to the network. Verizon FiOS (FYE-ose) is new suite of fiber-optic services over FTTP, an advanced fiber-optic technology that is used to connect a home or business directly to Verizon's network. Fiber-optic systems use strands of glass fiber and laser-generated pulses of light to transmit voice, data and video signals at speeds and capacities far exceeding today's systems. This new network offers greater reliability and lower maintenance costs. By deploying fiber to homes and businesses in our territory, Verizon is reinventing its wireline business.
