Verizon 331 Investments in 150 Countries. Upgrade & Properly Maintain the Networks? Nah.


Verizon claims that it is uneconomical to properly upgrade and maintain the state-based utility networks, and, as we have discussed, Verizon has only upgraded less than 50% of the areas that they cover, even though Verizon collected billions per state to do upgrades to fiber optics, replacing the copper wires. In some cases, like New Jersey, the company was supposed to upgrade the entire state as well as schools and libraries.

And in fact, Verizon’s plan is to ‘shut off the copper networks’ and force customers onto their more expensive wireless service for broadband and Internet service.

Where did the money go it not to upgrade the networks? Your community and you are not really what Verizon cares about. It is all about the global markets.

“Our vision of the future is based on expanding global markets for mobility, broadband and video. Our investment in superior wireless, fiber-optic and global IP networks puts Verizon in the center of these powerful growth markets and enables us to deliver unique connected services on a global scale.“

And while Verizon is based in New York, that doesn’t really matter. Verizon never finished it’s required deployment of fiber-based cable service to residential customers in New York City, even though 100% was to be completed by July 2014.

Instead, Verizon’s belief is that they are a ‘global leader in “more than 150 countries”. This is from Verizon’s 2014 Annual Report and is used in other places as well.

“Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ), headquartered in New York, is a global leader in delivering broadband and other wireless and wireline communications services to consumer, business, government and wholesale customers. Verizon Wireless operates America’s most reliable wireless network, with more than 106 million retail connections nationwide. Verizon also provides converged communications, information and entertainment services over America’s most advanced fiber-optic network, and delivers integrated business solutions to customers in more than 150 countries.”

And Verizon is interested in numbers and can’t be concerned with, well, your issues. There’s 3 billion people online in 2014.

“Almost 3 billion people—40 percent of the world’s population—use the Internet. There are roughly 1.2 billion connections in the rapidly growing Internet of Things— about 20 percent more than in 2013—with that number expected to grow almost fivefold by the end of the decade.“

From Peru and Brazil, or Estonia and Albania, to Pakistan, Hong Kong, China, Iceland, Australia or Malaysia, Egypt, not to mention, Latvia, Thailand, Nigeria or the Philippines, does anyone really think that Verizon cares about you service, or the local issues in your state?

Here are 331 Investments of Verizon in 150 countries.


Verizon has attempted to hide this list, as has AT&T about its affiliate companies and investments.

I note that my personal favorite are the companies that sound like they are part of some clandestine spy movie, maybe a CIA operation or even a Chuck Norris movie:

  • NCC Anaconda Company
  • NCC Charlie Company
  • NCC Delta Company
  • NCC Echo Company
  • NCC Golf Company
