TREVOSE, PA — Verizon Wireless has enhanced digital wireless service in Atlantic City, NJ with the addition of a new digital cell site at the Atlantic City Airport.
Using code division multiple access (CDMA) digital technology, the site will provide improved wireless coverage to the heavily traveled Atlantic City Airport, making it convenient for business travelers and families to communicate with colleagues and friends. The Atlantic City Expressway and Rt. 575 will also receive improved coverage.
CDMA wireless technology provides wireless users with greater call clarity and security, longer battery life and talk time and the ability to use advanced wireless services such as Internet access and text messaging.
"This digital network upgrade will provide our business and consumer customers with improved wireless coverage when using our voice and data services," said Ann McCrystal, president of Verizon Wireless' Philadelphia Tri-State Region.
CDMA digital wireless service transmits calls as a series of binary ones and zeroes for crystal-clear communication, as opposed to continuous radio waves transmitted by analog service, and each call is encoded for superior wireless security.
