Connecting our city

Bringing together the diverse minds and innovative solutions of Houston and Verizon.


Serving Houston together.

Since its founding, Houston has been a city where people come to thrive. Now, as the city continues to grow at record pace, Houston needs the power of reliable connectivity and innovative technology to continue to support its citizens.

At Verizon, our local team has a native understanding of Houston's needs — ​and a personal love of the city. We’ve been with you through thick and thin — hurricanes, pandemics, and Superbowls — and we take pride in partnering with homegrown businesses. With our strong presence and evolving technological support, Verizon is a partner you can depend on.​ After all, we’re Houstonians, too.

Here for Houston.

First responders count on resilient networks to get the job done.

When Hurricane Harvey engulfed Texas in 2017, Verizon put our networks, equipment, and people at the backs of your first responders. To aid in recovery efforts, we brought in 200+ network professionals, 3,305 consumer devices, and over 80,000 gallons of fuel.

Our commitment to your first responders remains strong — learn more about how we help put Houston in a secure and productive position for emergency services.
