Verizon Wireless' Superior Network Drives Industry - Leading Results And Milestones

Already this year Verizon Wireless has built more than 1,000 cell sites, grown the network's capacity by more than 50 percent and engineered countless other service improvements to maintain the nation's largest and most reliable* wireless network. This $4 billion annual investment has extended wireless service to such places as all the major automobile tunnels in New York City; improved coverage along the interchange of interstate highways 580 and 5, and state highway 132 in Northern California; contributed to the launched service in Joplin, Missouri; and the construction of the “ultimate stealth cell site,” an exact replica of an architectural design element atop the Disney Celebration Hotel in Orlando, Florida, that doubles as a wireless antenna. The reliability and reach of its network has also provided the foundation for innovative products and services including the nation's fastest large-scale wireless data networks in Washington, D.C., and San Diego.
