Verizon Wireless is building new fiber networks that will provide faster Internet access in some areas.
Verizon said Thursday that it has begun to build new wireless networks in communities across the country, with the goal of expanding its wireless network to a full population by 2021.
Verizon has spent more than $100 billion on wireless networks over the past three decades.
In addition to offering fast Internet access, Verizon said it will deploy fiber-optic networks throughout its network, enabling faster data transfer.
It also said that Verizon Wireless will continue to offer its high-speed wireless services to customers through its Internet.com service.
The company said that its fiber network has more than 20 gigabits per second (Gbps) of capacity.
In the future, Verizon plans to expand its wireless broadband network to an additional 1.2 million households in the United States and another 1.5 million households worldwide, Verizon Wireless said.
Verizon Wireless has also added new services to its wireless service, such as a high-capacity data hub and voice-over-Internet services.
The wireless company said it is adding new data services to make it easier to find, manage and connect to data.
Verizon added that it is working on new services for mobile devices.
