The latest installment in Verizon’s new family of wireless broadband services promises to give consumers a bit more control over how they access their broadband.
The service, Verizon’s Internet Choice, is launching today.
The service is being rolled out in parts of California, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Washington and Texas.
Verizon Internet Choice is the first product from the company to offer customers a choice of wired or wireless broadband, a move that will make the service more attractive to those who use tablets or other mobile devices.
The company says the service is “designed to provide consumers with a choice in how they use their broadband Internet.”
The service is rolling out in part because of a court ruling that found Verizon’s broadband broadband internet throttling practices violated federal net neutrality rules.
The court ruled that Verizon’s internet throttler throttling tactics were so pervasive and extensive that it “stifles competition” by blocking certain types of internet traffic.
The company said it was taking action in response to the court ruling.
It said it is removing the throttling measures that it said it implemented and is updating the service so it’s compatible with its LTE network.

The Verge’s review of these companies also found that the company did not disclose how much it paid to acquire those companies.
Verizons service is available to customers who live in areas that support high-speed broadband.
Verizon’s fiber-to-the-home service is also available.
Veritas Internet Choice offers both wired and wireless broadband options.
Verzis internet service costs $20 per month for home or small business use.
It also offers a wireless plan for $40 per month.
