Verizon began offering 21,000 residents of Beaumont, CA, its FiOS service last week.
The introduction of FiOS TV in California brings the number of states where Verizon offers its new TV service to six. FiOS TV is already available in 14 north Texas communities near Dallas; Temple Terrace, FL; Herndon, VA, and surrounding parts of Fairfax County and Woburn, MA; and Massapequa Park, NY.
The company plans to expand FiOS TV service to Murrieta, a community of 80,000. Beaumont and Murrieta granted cable franchises to Verizon in November 2004 and September 2005, respectively. They were among the first cities in the country to grant such franchise agreements to Verizon.
