In this industry, companies provide customers with cellular phone service, Internet access, and other services such as telephone landlines or cable television through their wires or satellites.
- Verizon offers a variety of services, including fiber optics. These connections are generally faster than traditional copper ones because they don’t require any physical wiring—they’re just light signals traveling through thin glass fibers instead (hence “fiber optics”). Verizon is also known for its fiber-optic network that provides high-speed internet and television services to more than 14 million users nationwide through a single connection point at home called Fios TV; this means you can watch live TV without any additional equipment besides your set-top box!
