Verizon FiOS Launches in Pittsburgh

Verizon FiOS has launched its Verizon FiOS TV service in the Steel City. Verizon FiOS is offering its video service to more than 160,000 households in Pittsburgh within six years of the cable franchise being awarded.

Verizon FiOS will square off against Comcast in the Pittsburgh area. That is great news for people in Pennsylvania. Verizon FiOS said it will be offering more than 600 channels in Pittsburgh, including more than 120 HD channels, which it said was more than Comcast is currently offering.

Pittsburgh residents who are FiOS TV-eligible have the option to trim their monthly bills with packages that include FiOS TV, FiOS Internet and voice service for $79.99 per month for the first six months. Customers who sign up for a qualifying FiOS service before Dec. 19 may be eligible for $150 cash back.
