Verizon applies to add 77,000 Florida TV households to FiOS TV coverage

Verizon applied July 2 to offer its FiOS TV services to 77,000 additional households in the Tampa area.

The application was filed under Florida's new cable TV franchise law and expands Verizon's coverage for its FiOS services to nearly 2 million households in the Tampa Bay region.

This initial application will add Tarpon Springs and Sarasota, as well as portions of Pinellas County, to Verizon's franchised municipalities and counties in Florida, which now number 16.

A provision of the law makes it easier for Verizon to expand its service in the future. As the company rolls out its fiber network and begins to provide service to customers, it can add the new areas to its franchise application simply by filing an amendment within five days of providing initial service in the area.
