Verizon planning 2009 New Jersey FiOS rollout in Atlantic / Cape May counties

Darren Murph

Verizon already services quite a chunk of New Jersey, but in a recent writeup explaining how cabling was currently being laid to bring FiOS TV to more of southern NJ (Cumberland county, in particular), we noticed that Vineland and Bridgeton weren't the only nearby regions with fiber in their future. According to Dennis Bone, president of Verizon New Jersey, FiOS should also be rolled out in "Atlantic and Cape May counties, beginning in Middle Township, by 2009." If all goes well, the company hopes to have around 300 communities across the state with access to at least FiOS internet, if not FiOS TV, by the end of 2008. Still, one has to wonder when the service will start moving out from the same ole footprint.
