New Verizon Pricing - 
Local Ethernet Private Line (ILEC EPL)

Effective November 2014: Verizon is offering new competitive rates for all current local Ethernet Private Line speeds (10M, 50M, 100M, 150M, 300M, 450M, 600M and 1G). All new and renewal customers in the Verizon ILEC territory should be targeted (MA, RI, CT, NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, DC, VA, FL, TX, CA). With Ethernet transport services being the primary network solutions for most enterprise customers, lower prices allow you to be better positioned for success. Ethernet Private Line allows enterprise customers to extend their LAN or connect their Data Center using highly reliable, secure, familiar transport services from a reliable Data Services carrier.

Next Steps: Look at upcoming renewal opportunities. Re-visit previous losses due to pricing and re-bid. Get a SOVA Sales Support Specialist and Verizon Sales Engineer involved to help position Ethernet Private Line and the price reductions with your customers.

New York City Seasonal Construction Embargo 
Effective 11/21/2014 - 1/2/2015

As they have done in previous years, the City of New York will be implementing a construction embargo on all outside construction work on certain designated streets, during the high traffic holiday period beginning on Friday, November 21, 2014 through Friday, January 2, 2015.


Verizon Engineering teams in the New York City area are aware of  the limitations and make every effort to provide accurate completion date information encompassing the embargo timelines; however, there are circumstances where construction may be delayed.  New projects requiring outside construction in the impacted areas will not have permits issued by the city until after the embargo has expired.  Construction that does not require activity in the street or sidewalk will not be impacted.


The embargo is managed by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), and detailed information is available to the public on their website listed below.  Additionally attached is a pdf published by NYC DOT which provides more specifics about the embargo.


Given this, please be mindful when setting customers' expectations for installs especially when offering expedite orders to our New York City based customers as implementation of circuits may be delayed..
