Verizon invested more than $711 million in Internet Protocol and fiber optic network services for businesses, government organizations and households across Virginia during 2013.
The company’s spending on wireline infrastructure systems in the state has totaled approximately $3.7 billion over the past five years, Verizon said Friday.
Christopher Childs, a regional president for Verizon’s consumer and mass business, said the company made the investments to address customer demand for communications, video and broadband products and services.
Verizon has deployed almost 20,000 miles of all-fiber network throughout the state as of 2013.
At year’s end, Verizon’s FiOS TV and Internet services were accessed by 1.3 million enterprise and household customers, according to the release.
Last year, Verizon introduced a public cloud computing platform and a medical technology for clinicians and patients to remotely manage health information.
The company also launched a managed wireless automated teller machines and a telematics service offering for the automotive insurance industry.
