Verizon's FiOS Network Gets Texas Franchise Approval

  • October 24, 2005
Verizon's FiOS TV network is on its way: The Texas Public Utility Commission approved the first statewide franchise of a telephone video service on Friday. Verizon had filed for franchises in 21 communities under the state's new franchise law--the first of its kind in the country. Verizon says it will have its FiOS TV in 400,000 households by the end of next year. It also has a number of pending franchises in other states.
