Verizon Says No to FiOS in South Jersey Towns

Verizon announced this week that it would not be installing FiOS services in a large number of towns in Southern New Jersey. However, they will be working to upgrade copper lines in the Southern New Jersey Area.

Large parts of South Jersey will not be brought into the Fios era.

The telecom giant won’t be wiring a wide swath of Cumberland, Burlington, Salem, and Atlantic Counties with the high-speed Fios service that has been extended to millions of residents in other parts of New Jersey, according to a settlement among state officials, Verizon, and 17 towns that complained about substandard phone service. Fios is Verizon’s branded service for internet, television, and voice services, delivered over fiber lines.
