Verizon Says Boston FiOS To Come Online 'Within Weeks'

Good news for those of you that live in Boston and are waiting on FiOS. Verizon has announced that it will finally be rolling out FiOS in your area "within weeks."

Back in April Verizon surprised everyone by announcing it was unpausing its all-but-dead FiOS expansion to spend $300 million to expand FiOS throughout Boston. Boston had long been one of a handful of cities that were skipped by Verizon during upgrades, frustrating locals stuck on aging DSL infrastructure. According to Verizon, the company will be spending $300 million to deploy FiOS and help expand the city's wireless infrastructure in preparation for faster 5G wireless speeds.
