Verizon is Planning 100-Gigabit Network Upgrade

Verizon is planning on upgrading certain areas to 100 Gigabit Ethernet by the end of the second quarter. It will take place in six different cities, broken up into three parts, two cities at a time. Chicago to New York, Sacramento to Los Angeles, and Minneapolis to Kansas City.

Verizon says the upgrade is primarily intended to benefit businesses which rely on video streaming, cloud-based apps, and other high-bandwidth services. Verizon also just recently deployed a 100 Gigabit network in Europe between routers on a 555-mile stretch from Paris to Frankfurt.
