Verizon Wireless Expands Network in Western San Mateo County, California

WALNUT CREEK, CA — Wireless users along the San Mateo County coast are now experiencing increased coverage in Montara and Pescadero, thanks to two new Verizon Wireless cell sites that also benefit travelers along Highway 1.

The new Montara cell site improves network coverage and capacity within the communities of Montara and Moss Beach, including the Half Moon Bay Airport.

In Pescadero, the new cell site improves coverage and capacity within the town of Pescadero, near Highway 1 and Pescadero Creek Road.

Both sites also provide users with access to high-speed data services for Internet access and the most comprehensive mobile music service available-V CAST Music.

"Our expansion along Highway 1 is tied to our commitment to provide the best possible wireless experience for customers. It's our way of ensuring that Verizon Wireless continues to be the leader in customer loyalty,*" Rich Garwood, president of the company's Northern California and Nevada region.

In an industry first, Verizon Wireless puts customers in the driver's seat to take the nation's most reliable wireless network for a spin. The company is the only major carrier with a 30-day network Test Drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn't satisfied and switches to another carrier.

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $4.6 billion in its wireless network in California over the past six years to stay ahead of the growth in demand for our products and services, to ensure the most reliable network in the industry, and to add new capabilities, like wireless Internet access at broadband speeds and mobile music downloads.

The company has invested more than $44 billion since 2000 when the company was formed — $5.5 billion on average every year — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services.
