Verizon's FiOS TV headed to Dover, Delaware

Darren Murph

Residents of Delaware's capital city can bust out the balloons and party hats, as it looks as if Verizon's FiOS TV is nearly ready to launch in your neck of the woods. Just yesterday, the City Council voted unanimously to authorize Verizon to offer its fiber-based television service in Dover. Thanks to the vote, it now joins Arden, Ardencroft, Ardentown, Bellefonte, Cheswold, Delaware City, Leipsic, Little Creek, Middletown, Newark, Odessa and Townsend as locales in The First State that have approved Verizon's franchise agreement. There's no telling when the next step (you know, actually offering service) will be taken, but rest assured, you're much, much closer today than you were just last week.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
