Verizon rides tech innovations into MDUs

Verizon Communications' new push into multi-dwelling unit deployments in New York City is built on a number of technology innovations from bendable fiber to reduced ONT footprints, as well as an installation process that has improved through experience. Business-wise, Verizon is finding curiosity and enthusiasm among MDU landlords. To pave the way with MDU tenants, Verizon has even devised FiOS parties, in which tenants with FiOS have neighbors over to get a look at the service. For every neighbor who then signs up for FiOS, Verizon pays the customer for the marketing assist. Nice.

In the early going, Verizon is only providing voice and broadband Internet over the MDU FiOS connections, but as loosened MDU exclusivity leads to new opportunities, this looks like an impressive build-up to the eventuality that Verizon could provide video to these customers as well.
