Verizon Expands 7 Megabits per Second High Speed Internet Service to 1.2 Million Additional Customers in the East


Service Offers Great Value With Ultra-Fast Downstream Connection Speeds; Provides Prime Opportunity for Consumers to Drop Cable Modem Connections

NEW YORK - Some 1.2 million additional consumers in 12 Eastern states and the District of Columbia can now order the new ultra-fast Verizon High Speed Internet service, which provides an appealing alternative to cable Internet.

The new service more than doubles the speed of Verizon’s current fastest offer and delivers a more robust broadband and entertainment experience. It provides qualified customers a downstream connection speed of up to 7 megabits per second (Mbps) for as low as $39.99 a month when ordered with an annual service plan.

“Our 7 megabits per second Internet service allows you to quickly download information from the Internet and provides an attractive alternative to cable modems,” said Susan Retta, vice president, broadband solutions for Verizon. “This faster High Speed Internet service provides a more enjoyable online experience that supports everything from sharing remote work files, gaming and viewing video clips over Verizon’s reliable network.”

The following locations are part of the 7 Mbps High Speed Internet expansion: Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

In January, Verizon introduced its fastest copper-based Internet service to more than 400,000 home phone lines in the Great Lakes, Southeast, South and West Coast. Verizon expects the 7 Mbps service to be available to more than 2 million homes and small businesses in 22 states and the District of Columbia by the end of 2008.
