Worcester, Massachusetts–As part of its continued investment in Massachusetts, Verizon is bringing high-speed fiber internet to customers across the state, including Worcester, Brockton, Lowell, Everett, Milton, Newburyport and Plainville. The latest Verizon Home Internet expansion is expected to make Verizon’s fiber network available to over 70,000 additional homes and businesses in the Bay State.

“Verizon is focused on delivering broadband internet service, and the major economic benefits associated with it, to the people of Massachusetts,” said Kevin Service, Senior Vice President of Wireline Network Operations for Verizon. “From Fios to 5G Home, more Verizon customers than ever across the Bay State have access to high-speed internet to fuel how they work, live and play.”

“Fios benefits Worcester residents as they continue to recover from the economic impact of the pandemic by offering fast and reliable network connectivity at a time when we continue to rely on online services to function remotely,” said Worcester Mayor, Joseph Petty.

In 2021, Verizon invested $750 million in its wireline and wireless networks in Massachusetts and currently employs more than 5,000 people. Despite the impact of the COVID pandemic, Verizon deployed over 1,000 miles of fiber (the equivalent of running fiber between Boston and Chicago) in connection with this expansion.

Verizon’s all-fiber network will deliver our award-winning Fios broadband service with wired speeds of up to 940 Mbps downstream / 880 Mbps upstream and no data caps. Customers who subscribe to Fios broadband service will have access to a wide range of Fios service plans that deliver at least 300 Mbps for both downloads and uploads starting at just $25 per month with auto pay and select 5G mobile plans.

In addition, those who qualify for the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program in partnership with the Verizon Forward Program can get free Verizon Home Internet with no upfront fees, annual contracts, equipment charges or data caps.
