We’re committed to New York.

On a daily basis, I hear from our customers in the Northeast about how their wireless service delivered for them when it mattered most. From emergency calls to live-streaming baby’s first steps, we always strive to have your back.

And we’re investing now to make sure we’ve got the mobile service needs for New Yorkers and New York businesses covered for a long time to come.

In 2016 alone, Verizon Wireless made capital investments of $830 million in New York State to continue to improve and evolve our network. We’re densifying our network throughout the 5 boroughs and the Tri-State area with small cell deployments, and our investment in fiber optics. This ensures that you get the latest technologies and the best experience now.  

We just won an award for #1 overall network performance in New York City and the Tri State Area*. That’s a great achievement for Verizon engineers, but it matters to you – because RootMetrics® not only ranked us the #1 network in the latest Metro report; our network is unbeaten over the last 6 years for overall network performance in the area. Which means: reliable yesterday and today.

And while we don’t set out to win awards like this, we pretty much do win them all – proof that our commitment to you – and bringing you the true network excellence - is paying off.

We have a long, proud history of leading technological innovation. We’ve been a global technology leader in 4G and LTE wireless technology. Now we’re pioneering 5G, and testing this emerging technology in 11 cities across the nation, the largest 5G proving ground anywhere in the world.

Take a look at this video for a better understanding of how our network is evolving.
