Verizon bringing new internet choice to over 300,000 New Yorkers

NEW YORK – Fios, Verizon’s award-winning fiber optic home internet service, is available to all New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) units across the five boroughs.

“We’re offering additional choice to help bridge the digital divide across the city,” said Yoli Stancil, VP Wireline Network Operations – NYC. “High-quality, reliable home internet, like Fios, is vital in today’s world to keep New Yorkers connected.”

The project was built using our highly skilled union workforce.

Residents living in NYCHA residences have access to Fios’ 100% fiber-optic broadband internet service with options that deliver at least 300 Mbps for both downloads and uploads for free.

Additionally, participants in certain government assistance programs may be eligible to receive free Fios internet through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP),1 a U.S. government program run by the FCC to help low-income households afford internet service and the Verizon Forward Program.
