City of Boston to Host Community Meeting to Discuss Verizon Partnership
July 29, 2016
BOSTON - Thursday, July 28, 2016 - On Tuesday, August 2, the City of Boston will host a community meeting to seek input from residents on Verizon New England's application to obtain a new Boston Cable license and offer FiOS service in Boston.
This meeting will discuss Verizon's partnership with the city and its plans to implement the new network. The meeting is open to the public, and residents are encouraged to attend and share their feedback about the project.
This past April, Mayor Walsh announced a partnership with Verizon to transform the city's technology infrastructure. Through a $300 million investment over the next six years, Verizon will replace the city's copper-based infrastructure with a state-of-the-art fiber-optic network platform.
The Verizon Amended Form 100 Cable Application submitted to the City and other license related documentation is available for public review at the new cable competition page here.
Please take the opportunity to share your comments with the City as we continue to pursue Verizon's new competitive cable TV and broadband service.
