In Montgomery County, Maryland Verizon has begun offering FiOS TV to more than 75,000 households, with more to come in the next few months.
Verizon delivers FiOS TV over its all-fiber-optic network, said to be the largest in the nation. Only this network has earned the certification of the independent Fiber to the Home Council for providing fiber all the way to customers' homes.
Verizon FiOS TV is available now in parts of Bethesda, Burtonsville, Garrett Park, Glen Echo, Kensington, Silver Spring, and Wheaton. In addition, 16 local jurisdictions within Montgomery County have chosen to adopt the franchise agreement the county and Verizon reached in late November of 2006, which will hasten cable competition for the jurisdictions' residents.
