Verizon Video Franchise Approved by Public Utility Commission of Texas

The Public Utility Commission of Texas today approved Verizon's state-issued franchise application to offer Verizon FiOS TV service to 21 communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. This is in addition to Verizon's previously obtained video franchise agreements in the communities of Keller, Sachse, Westlake and Wylie.

Verizon said it plans to make FiOS TV available to nearly 400,000 North Texas households with over 1 million potential viewers by the end of 2006.
