Has Hanover discouraged or prevented Verizon from offering Fios services in Hanover County?
No. The county does not have the authority to approve or deny Fios or any other high-speed internet service offered by any company. Verizon and other companies offer a service, or choose not to, based on their own business plans.

The county encourages all businesses offering high-speed internet services to provide services to all residents regardless of proximity to current service areas. To date we have made our communications towers available to internet service providers and have negotiated over 20 agreements. We meet with providers to educate about our need and to encourage expansion, we have supported grant applications for studies and expansion, and we adopted a new rate structure on our towers as incentive for internet service expansion.
