Malden, MA Gets FiOS TV

By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Residents of Malden, Massachusetts will soon be able to receive FiOS TV from Verizon (News - Alert) with a new agreement that has been inked with Verizon. The FiOS TV service will be provided through Verizon’s advanced all-digital, fiber-optic network straight to customers’ homes.

Malden Mayor Richard C. Howard has granted a cable franchise to Verizon and authorized video choice for the approximately 22,000 households in Malden. The Mayor’s authorization brings to 67 the total number of Massachusetts communities where Verizon’s FiOS (News - Alert) TV is or will soon be available.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring FiOS TV to residents in Malden,” said Donna Cupelo, Verizon region president for Massachusetts and Rhode Island. “Since the launch of FiOS TV in Massachusetts last year, we are continuing our efforts to meet the consumer demand for cable TV choice.”
Verizon currently offers FiOS TV in 66 Massachusetts communities as well as other locations in New York, New Jersey, California, Delaware, Texas, Florida, Maryland, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Rhode Island and Virginia.
For Malden, this deal with Verizon is not seen as merely a new service that offers new features, improved service, and competitive rates, but also as an investment for additional funding for the public, education, and government cable-access channels, and ensuring that all parts of the city are covered by it.
Howard said, “By granting this license, the city of Malden has created a choice in cable TV service for our residents. This is a significant advantage for Malden consumers.”
“As a result of this new franchise, consumers in Malden will be able to choose their cable provider as easily as they choose their phone company,” said Cupelo. “Competition drives innovation, value and service quality, and it puts the consumer in control.”
