Telecommunications Industry News is reporting that Verizon Communications has announced plans to offer quadruple play telecom services, which would include voice, broadband, Intenet and wireless in a single package. This four services assault would allow Verizon, which is currently the second largest incumbent telephone operator in the US, to gain an advantage over cable operators such as Comcast and Time Warner, who have already partnered with Sprint Nextel. Verizon is currently building a fiber optic service that will be available to a total of nine million households by year’s end.
Verizon had added mobile phone to the prior triple-play bundle this past February.
