Trump Buildings Go Fiber-Optic

Trump Buildings Go Fiber-Optic NEW YORK, NY - Residents of four more Donald Trump apartment buildings in Manhattan will soon have access to Verizon FiOS services, delivered over the company's advanced, all-fiber-optic network straight to customers' homes. Verizon will soon begin to build out its all-fiber-network and, under a recently signed agreement with the Trump Organization, will bring FiOS TV and FiOS Internet services to Trump Place at 120 Riverside, Trump Place at 200 Riverside, Trump Place at 220 Riverside and The Heritage at Trump Place. The buildings, which contain 1,264 apartments, are located in the former rail yard at the south end of Riverside Park, on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Residents of five other Trump buildings - The Trump World Tower at United Nations Plaza, Trump Park Avenue, Trump Parc, Trump Parc East and 610 Park Avenue - already have FiOS services and enjoy access to over 120 high-definition (HD) channels, unique interactive TV and broadband speeds of up to 50 Mbps (megabits per second).

"This latest agreement with the Trump Organization underscores a strategic decision that is growing in popularity among property owners: to enhance and upgrade their properties' infrastructure with Verizon's advanced, all-fiber-optic network," said Eric Cevis, vice president of Verizon Enhanced Communities, the business unit within Verizon that markets and sells FiOS communications and entertainment services to single- and multiple-home communities.

"Trump properties, known for offering premier amenities, understands that it matters what network you connect to. That's why they are now offering Verizon's FiOS services to more of their residents - it's the ultimate home upgrade," Cevis said.

Trump Organization Chairman and President Donald J. Trump said: "Verizon is delivering its FiOS services over fiber-optic lines connected straight to my buildings, which meets and exceeds the high standard of technology and service excellence I demand. We know our residents will appreciate having the option to choose the very latest and best in entertainment and broadband services from Verizon."

Trump and Verizon are exploring other Trump properties that can be served by Verizon FiOS services.

"We like giving our residents the very best, and it includes a choice of entertainment service providers and access to the latest technology," said Trump Organization Chief Operating Officer Matthew Calamari. "Verizon FiOS service is technology that we believe will support future applications our residents will adopt."

FiOS TV offers a broad collection of programming, with 500 all-digital channels, including more than 120 HD channels in the greater New York City area. The service also offers an innovative Interactive Media Guide that provides next-generation, personalized interactive services such as free Facebook and Twitter social media applications; news, sports and entertainment widgets; ESPN Fantasy Football; a robust search engine; and many other features. FiOS TV's advanced Home Media DVR technology provides customers with access to innovative capabilities including the ability to use one recorder for up to seven TV sets; search for and view online videos on TV; and wirelessly stream personal videos, photos and music from a home computer to the TV screen.
