Verizon Fios

Verizon Fios, also marketed as Fios by Verizon, is a bundled Internet access, telephone, and television service that operates over a fiber optical network. The service is operated in the New England and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States[1] and roughly covers 11% of the US population.[2] Verizon was one of the first major U.S. carriers to offer fiber to the home (FTTH), and received positive ratings from Consumer Reports among cable television and Internet service providers.[3][4]

Although some areas do not have service or cannot receive TV and phone service because of franchise agreements.[citation needed]
