This puts the subsidiary company in fifth place in the Pay TV provider rankings behind AT&T Premium TV, Comcast Corporation, Charter Communications, and Dish Network. Verizon FiOS is the company’s bundled internet offering, including telephone and television services using a fiber-optic communication network. In addition, FiOS Verizon also offers regular broadband internet services and landline voice services with its wireline segment.
