Verizon FiOS is a bundled communications (Internet, telephone, and TV) service, operating over a fiber-optic communications network, that is presently offered in some areas of the United States by Verizon. Verizon has attracted consumer and media attention in the area of broadband Internet access as the first major U.S. carrier to offer fiber to the home/premises. Other service providers currently only use fiber optics deployment to the network backbone and use existing copper or coax infrastructure for the end user. The coverage area is still expanding; however, some areas do not have service or cannot receive TV and phone service because of franchise agreements. As of 2009 the number of homes with FiOS availability was 12.7 million, of which 3.1 million subscribe to the Internet service, and 2.04 million to FiOS TV.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
