Actually, the article does indeed say that Verizon has "come to announce the renunciation of installing fiber to the subscriber."
I'm not trusting an online translation for this, I'm trusting myself. Both Google Translate and Babel Fish don't understand "renoncait." That means to renounce or to give up.
Maybe the French used the Google translator to translate some Verizon press releases and got those backward.
