PITTSBURGH, PA — Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, today announced improvements at dozens of cell sites in Pennsylvania during the final quarter of 2003 and January 2004, improving coverage and capacity along some of the state's busiest roadways as well as in rural areas.
Enhancements at the Burnham cell site in Mifflin County will improve Verizon Wireless service and coverage along routes 322 and 655 as well as in the towns of Reedsville, Naginey and Milroy.
"Verizon Wireless is committed to providing our customers with the best network," said Roger Tang, president Ohio/Pennsylvania Region, Verizon Wireless. "We understand our customers expect that when they press 'send' on their wireless phones, their calls will go through, sound clear and stay connected for the duration of their conversation. That's why, across the state in 2003, we spent nearly $187 million on our network in Pennsylvania. In 2004, our network remains our top priority."
Verizon Wireless has invested more than $12 billion over the past three years in its national network, offering customers access to the most extensive and reliable wireless voice and data network in the United States.
