Verizon secures $2.7bn US navy contract 


The contract will help the US navy undergo a digital modernisation 

The US Department of the Navy has chosen Verizon’s government, education, and public safety arm, Verizon Public Sector, to provide wireless services, in a contract worth up to $2.67 billion over 10 years. 

The new contract will offer improved and cost-effective wireless solutions to related military and federal agencies. 

The agreement forms part of the fourth round of the wireless and telecoms services contract launched by the US Department of Defence (DOD), also known as the Spiral 4 contract. 

“Verizon’s inclusion in Spiral 4 represents our understanding of the DON’s sophisticated demands for mission critical communications, developed through our history of digital modernization partnership with federal agencies including on Spiral 3,” said David Rouse, head of Verizon’s defence portfolio in a press release. 

“We are proud to continue serving military agencies under this new contract and build on our relationship with the DOD,” he continued. 

Verizon plays a critical role in providing communication services to the US Navy to support their operations. Back in December, the company secured another contract with the US Navy to modernise data services and provide it with new voice technologies.  

The year before, it secured a deal worth almost $1 billion with the DOD to provide network modernisation services and technical support services to the Pentagon, the DOD National Capital Region (NCR), and US army base Fort Belvoir.
