Verizon moves into Medfield

Posted by Martin Finucane March 2, 2007 11:03 AM


Selectmen last week granted Verizon Communications a license to offer Internet, television, and telephone services in town.

The deal calls for Verizon to pay $160,000 in three installments over five years, which will be earmarked for equipment at the town's Cable 8 local Internet access. Also, 4.75 percent of Verizon's cable revenue will go directly to Cable 8.

The terms are similar to the contract between the town and Comcast, which had been the only cable provider in town.
