NYC Says Verizon Settlement to Build Out High-Speed Internet

New York City reached a settlement with Verizon that will expand high-speed Internet to an additional 500,000 households.

The agreement will prioritize the least-connected community districts. It will help children study and the vulnerable stay in touch with relatives, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday at a press briefing.

“The pandemic has only underscored how critical this need is,” de Blasio said.
