Last week, Verizon offered a promotional deal on FiOS, its high-speed fiber internet service. Ordinarily the offer — $80 for 300 Mbs internet when bundled with phone and television — wouldn’t be noteworthy. But FiOS development has long been stalled, and the promotion gave some hope that the company would resurrect the project and roll it out to new cities to compete with Google’s ultra-high-speed internet service.
But alas, it was not meant to be. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam told investors at a conference on Monday that the company still has no plans to expand the service into new cities, Fierce Telecom reports.
