    Verizon Expands Its FiOS Network In Medford MA

    medford gets verizon fiosMayor Michael McGlynn has convinced Verizon to expand their FiOS network in Medford, which means that once expansion is completed, FiOS TV, internet, and digital phone will be available to all Medford residents.

    Verizon stopped the expansion of its FiOS pure fiber to the premises (FTTP) network in 2010, which is far more costly than the typical fiber to the node (FTTN) network that other cable companies use to deliver digital TV, phone, and internet service. As of now, Verizon has already installed fiber-optic cables that cover about 70% of the city. Residents and businesses that are located in that 70% can currently subscribe to FiOS services if they wish.

    Now, an agreement is in place for Verizon to expand their service to the rest of Medford, announced Mayor McGlynn: “As of now, they are out wiring the rest of the community.”

    The company finally agreed to expand in Medford because community leaders convinced them that it would be a profitable and worthwhile move, said Verizon Regional VP Donna Cupelo. The high cost of installing pure fiber networks means that there must be adequate demand to justify the expense of offering the highest rated cable and internet services in the country. The only other pure fiber network in the nation is in Kansas City, which is being offered by search engine giant Google.

    The remaining 30% of Medford homes that need to be wired are located mainly in West Medford and a small portion in North Medford. Once wiring is completed, service will be offered immediately.

    The current contract signed by McGlynn and Cupelo stipulates that Verizon FiOS will be available throughout Medford until 2025. Comcast’s contract with Medford is set to expire in 2015, so that will have to be renegotiated. How this will affect Comcast’s strategy to maintain its service territory? Will they impose data limits on subscribers as planned now that there is more competition? Having more than one provider available is always a good thing, so kudos to the mayor for looking out for the best interests of his community.
