Verizon Expands FiOS TV Availability in California

Verizon has expanded the availability of its all-fiber- optic FiOS TV service in California, where it is now available to more than 500,000 households across the state. The company plans to expand the service to 1 million homes by the end of this year.

Verizon recently launched FiOS TV in additional Southern California cities -- including Downey, Santa Fe Springs, La Mirada and Norwalk -- and won approval from the Public Utilities Commission to offer the service in 34 more California communities as construction of the fiber-optic network proceeds. [Note: Lists of California cities served with FiOS TV and the new communities approved by the Public Utilities Commission appear at the end of this release.

Verizon started large-scale construction of its fiber network in California in 2004. Since then, the company has passed more than 800,000 households with its FiOS network in urban, suburban and rural areas throughout the state.
