LANSING, Mich., May 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon Public Sector today announced it has been awarded a new contract by the State of Michigan valued at $100 million.

Through this agreement, state agencies and affiliated entities will have access to Verizon’s award-winning network and a comprehensive suite of communications solutions designed to help enable Michigan to best serve the state’s more than 10 million residents.

The contract also allows eligible Michigan cities, townships, villages, counties, school districts, universities, colleges, and nonprofit hospitals to take advantage of available Verizon services through MiDeal, the State of Michigan’s extended purchasing program.
