Two More Mass. Cities OK FiOS TV


Verizon Communications Inc. won franchises Tuesday night to offer its Verizon FiOS TV service in Hamilton and Wenham, Mass.

The boards of selectmen of the two communities approved the franchises via unanimous votes, the regional Bell operating company said.

The Hamilton and Wenham news follows the Wakefield, Mass., Board of Selectmen authorizing the telco to offer FiOS TV Monday night.

Also Monday night, the West Chester (Pa.) Area Council of Governments -- which represents the borough of West Chester and the townships of East Bradford, East Goshen, West Goshen, Thornbury and Westtown -- voted to recommend that each member community authorize the RBOC to offer Verizon FiOS TV.
