IRVINE, CA — Even more Los Angeles County residents, businesses and visitors can now enjoy enhanced high-speed wireless data and voice connections in Sun Valley thanks to Verizon Wireless. New coverage includes the intersection of Saticoy Street and Tujunga Avenue, along the 5 Freeway to Victory Boulevard, and from Laurel Canyon to the Burbank Airport. Hundreds of upgrades since December 2009 have increased the company's 3G data and voice capacity by nearly thirty percent in Southern California. The increased capacity means more users are empowered to surf the Web, download applications and content, and exchange e-mail and other messages.
"People expect their cell phones and wireless devices to work whenever and wherever they need them," said Bill D'Agostino, executive director of network for Verizon Wireless in Southern California. "That's why we continue to invest in our network. By meeting the growing demand for data services on our network, we empower each of our customers to Rule the Air in their own unique, individual way."
