ANTELOPE VALLEY, CA - Customers and visitors to Antelope Valley, CA have the best experience when using the Verizon network, according to the nation’s most rigorous scientific testing company Rootmetrics®. In the most recent test measuring performance of major wireless carriers throughout Antelope Valley, Verizon not only wins for overall network performance, but is unbeaten in every single category measured including accessibility, speed, reliability and performance in texts and calls. Today’s results show remarkable speeds for Verizon customers in Antelope Valley with Verizon’s median download speed increasing 30% in the market since last year*.

“Whether working remotely, connecting with friends and family while visiting the annual Poppy Reserves in the spring, or connecting their smart homes through one of our home internet products, customers have come to expect a higher level of reliability and performance from their mobile network,” said Phillip French, Vice President of Engineering and Operations for Verizon. “We work everyday to ensure we deliver that for them.”

Network enhancements in Antelope Valley

These top marks are a result of months of deploying new enhancements in the network for those who live in and visit the Antelope Valley area. Network engineers have been busy deploying 5G Ultra Wideband service using Verizon’s recently acquired C-band spectrum, designed to provide wide coverage for 5G service, and now cover 55% of the population in Antelope Valley.

With the addition of 5G service there is a commensurate exponential increase in the amount of data customers use. That increase in data carried into and out of the cell sites serving the community requires upgraded fiber optic cable links. Fiber optic cables are used to move data between cell sites and connect those sites to the rest of the network. Verizon has increased the capacity on the fiber connections in many cell sites in the Antelope Valley area so they can carry 10 times the amount of data.

Services from the network customers rely on

For customers in Antelope Valley, the additional coverage and capacity means more customers now have access not only to reliable, fast mobile service, but also Verizon Home Internet service, a different kind of home internet with no data caps. It’s ideal for anyone who wants super fast connectivity to stream, game or even work remotely. Verizon Home Internet is reliable and fast enough to power home connected devices: smart TVs, tablets, phones, gaming consoles and more. Plans start at just $25 per month with AutoPay and a select 5G mobile plan – all without extra fees, equipment charges, annual contracts or data caps.** Go to for availability.
