FiOS TV Tees Up N.Y.-Area News


In what might be the official launch of FiOS1 in the NYC area, Verizon on Monday, June 22, “will reveal new choices for local programming available on the Verizon FiOS TV Network in the greater New York/New Jersey region,” the company said in a media advisory yesterday.

The telco also next Monday “will discuss several new promotions and compelling broadband developments.”’s Karl Bode reports that this looks to be a reference to a promo offering a free Compaq netbook for signing up for FiOS TV and new FiOS Internet tiers of 15/5 Mbps (downstream/upstream), 25/15 and 35/20.
