As much as Verizon's FiOS is the state of the art for telcos, the company is still working on rolling out DSL in underserved areas. Verizon said it is investing $5 million to extend broadband services to the remaining residential and business customers in rural areas of West Virginia yet to have access to DSL.

Verizon said it is upgrading equipment at its 15 remaining switching-center locations that do not yet provide DSL, and at more than 90 remote facilities.

By the end of December, Verizon plans to have all 142 of its West Virginia switching centers DSL-capable and more than 38,000 additional phone lines eligible for DSL service across the state, including places like Apple Grove, Franklin, Meadow Bridge and Rock Cave.
