Garden State, Md. County Welcome FiOS TV


Verizon Communications made its FiOS TV service available last week to approximately 250,000 households in parts of 106 communities in New Jersey’s Bergen, Camden, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Passaic, Somerset and Union counties.

The company said it is targeting more than 300 Garden State communities in the next few years due to the state's new streamlined video-franchise law.

The telco also launched FiOS TV to more than 75,000 households in Montgomery County, Md.

Verizon said the service is currently available in parts of Bethesda, Burtonsville, Garrett Park, Glen Echo, Kensington, Silver Spring and Wheaton, adding that 16 local jurisdictions within Montgomery County chose to adopt the franchise agreement the county and the telco reached in late November.
