Verizon's FiOS Quantum Now the Residential Internet Provider of Tampa Bay Buccaneers

October 28, 2013


Tampa Bay Buccaneers has contracted Verizon’s (News - Alert) FiOS Quantum Internet service as its official residential Internet provider.

As part of the multi-year sponsorship agreement, Verizon has been granted rights to demonstrate the high-speed capability and reliability of the FiOS (News - Alert) service at the Buccaneer’s stadium on game days through fantasy football check-ins, streaming of live television to tablets and other Internet activities, while the team’s logo will be used on advertising and in-stadium signage.

Delivered over a fiber-optic communications network, the Verizon FiOS is a bundled Internet access, telephone, and television service that offers a maximum speed of 300 Mbps. The high-speed Internet service was developed to give consumers a much wider range of choice, allowing them to cater to their ever-changing demands and requirements, including online entertainment, news, information communications and e-commerce.

Verizon claimed that with its top offering of 300 Mbps, users and fans have the capability to quickly download documents, watch webinars and live webcasts, participate in videoconferencing, access files from the cloud, and seamlessly upload files and communicate with others over the Internet.

Bryan Glazer, co-chairman of the Buccaneers, said, “We are pleased to welcome Verizon FiOS as the new official residential Internet provider of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and we look forward to showcasing the many benefits of FiOS Quantum (News - Alert) at Raymond James Stadium throughout the upcoming season.”

At the Buccaneers’ stadium, arrangements have been to enable fans to receive real-time updates on their fantasy football team and stream live television channels including NFL Network to their tablet, laptop or smartphone.

Verizon asserted that combining FiOS Quantum with the Bucs created the perfect mixture of speed, reliability and performance giving fans an entertaining way to enjoy the pre-game period.
