Verizon has begun to offer its FiOS triple play service of TV, Internet and voice to some 50,000 homes in Central New York, competing with Time Warner Cable. Verizon’s new service area include parts of Clay, East Syracuse, North Syracuse, Cicero, DeWitt, Salina, Camillus and Fleming. At the end of October, the company plans to expand availability to approximately 12,000 more homes. By the end of the year, if additional franchise agreements are secured and approved, the company hopes to have the service available to almost 100,000 homes in the region.

Said Andrés Irlando, Verizon president for the New York region, in a statement: "There are significant economic development and consumer benefits in Verizon’s rollout of FiOS TV to these central New York communities. Verizon has spent nearly $1 billion dollars in wireline network infrastructure in upstate areas of New York over the past two years.”
