Verizon secures contracts worth nearly $1 billion from U.S. defense department
Enthusiast - Level 3


Still hoping Verizon can extend something besides DSL 1 to 5Mbps internet service to a lot of Northeast Pennsylvania. 

I live a mile from a city that has Verizon Fios, 5G and LTE home internet but it isn't available to anyone just across the river. 

It takes your company years to upgrade infrastructure support for consumer services, but I see you were just awarded a massive contract with the U.S. Department of Defense. 


(Reuters) - Telecoms giant Verizon Communications Inc said on Wednesday it had secured new business worth almost $1 billion from the U.S. Department of Defense to provide technical support and network modernization services.

The deal includes contracts for services to the Pentagon, the National Capital Region (NCR) and Fort Belvoir at a combined value of $966.5 million.

Verizon will provide internet-protocol-based services, voice and video services and network-related support aimed at accelerating the department's digital pivot.
