Verizon offers TV in more towns


Verizon Communications Inc. said today that it is offering its FiOS TV service to five new Massachusetts communities, including two in the Globe West area, and that the service is now available to just over 100,000 Bay State households.

Verizon said the service is now available in Acton, Andover, Hopkinton, Lincoln, and Nahant; Verizon describes the FiOS TV as "an alternative to monopoly cable giants."

"FiOS TV gives consumers an outstanding, superior alternative for their video entertainment," Donna Cupelo, Verizon region president for Massachusetts and Rhode Island, said in a statement.
