Texans might be interested in learning about a lawsuit that was filed against Verizon. New York City filed the suit, alleging that Verizon breached a contract it had with the city that dated to 2008.
According to the complaint, Verizon allegedly failed to provide enough fiber-optic FIOS service for all of the residents of the city to access the internet. Verizon had reportedly promised to install enough of the fiber-optic cable for every household to have access by 2014. Verizon argues that it is already able to provide the service to 2.2 million households in the city. However, there are almost a million more households in New York, meaning that a large percentage does not have access to Verizon's fiber-optic FIOS service.
