Verizon to replace copper with fiber optic Internet in Boston

Matt Hamblen | April 13, 2016
Carrier will seek cable TV franchise and conduct a smart city traffic trial.

Verizon Fios offered in other cities is available for $69.99 per month for 100Mbps of Internet, with TV and phone, but that service might not be comparable to how Boston's new fiber will operate.

Verizon also presented a $100,000 Digital Equity contribution to the city to be used to support access for low-income residents. The money will support a mobile hotspot lending program at the Boston Public Library to be used to support families; Verizon said other details will be provided later.
