Verizon Wireless Opens New Kiosk In Eastview Mall in New York

ROCHESTER, NY — In response to growing demand for the company's wireless voice and data services, Verizon Wireless has opened a new kiosk in the Eastview Mall in Victor. The new kiosk, located near the food court, is the second Verizon Wireless Communications Store in the mall. The kiosk employs seven people and has been designed to make wireless shopping more convenient for new customers and to provide current customers with greater access to the full array of Verizon Wireless' products and services.

The new kiosk is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. — 9:30 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. — 6:00 p.m. The telephone number is 585-697-5946.

"This expansion represents our commitment to provide our customers with increased convenience and an accessible, knowledgeable sales staff," said Mark Andrews, director of Verizon Wireless Communication Stores for the Upstate New York region. "Demand for our wireless services continues to grow as more people take advantage of our America's Choice® and FamilyShare price plans, and our popular data services including BroadbandAccess wireless Internet access, music on demand and multimedia services, picture messaging, and two-way text messaging."

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $40 billion since it was formed — more than $5 billion on average every year — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services, including wireless data services such as picture messaging, text messaging and the company's exclusive V CAST service. V CAST brings TV and other multimedia services to wireless phones over Verizon Wireless' high-speed BroadbandAccess wireless network. Operating at average download speeds between 600 kilobits per second (kbps) up to 1.4 megabits, and average upload speeds of 500-800 kbps, BroadbandAccess lets customers download a 1 Megabyte e-mail attachment — the equivalent of a small PowerPoint® presentation or a large PDF file — in about eight seconds and upload the same-sized file in less than 13 seconds, approximately ten times faster than customers of other wireless service providers that use different broadly deployed network technologies.
