Verizon gets approval to launch FiOS TV service in Marysville and Kenmore

Verizon Communications has announced that city councils of Marysville and Kenmore, Washington, have granted permission to the company to offer fibre-optic-powered FiOS TV service in the regions.

By CBR Staff Writer

Marysville and Kenmore are the third and fourth communities in the Washington state to grant video franchises to Verizon, following similar votes earlier in Lynnwood and Everett.

The franchise votes give Verizon the authority to offer FiOS TV to up to 9,730 households in Marysville and up to 8,400 households in Kenmore.

David Valdez, senior vice president for Verizon’s Pacific Northwest region, said: We commend the mayors, the city councils and city staffs for their dedication and hard work throughout this process. They recognise and support the technological advantage and competitive benefits, as well as the distinctive edge in economic development and quality of life, which fibre will bring to their communities.
