How Was "Verizon" Named?
Verizon Communications a Dow 30 company, is a broadband (DSL) and telecommunications provider. It was formed in 2000 when Bell Atlantic, one of the Regional Bell Operating Companies, bought GTE, formerly the largest independent local exchange telephone company in the United States. Prior to its transformation into Verizon, Bell Atlantic had merged with another Regional Bell Operating Company, NYNEX, in 1997. The name is a portmanteau of veritas (Latin for truth) and horizon, suggesting a future of innovation.
