Skiers And Visitors To Sugarbush Resort In Vermont To Benefit From Verizon Wireless Network Expansion

WARREN, VT — In a continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for skiers, riders and visitors to Sugarbush Resort in Vermont, Verizon Wireless has activated a new cell site. The new site provides wireless voice and data coverage and capacity to the Lincoln Peak area of Sugarbush Resort, as well as adjacent portions of Inferno Road.

"This is great news for visitors to Sugarbush," said Sugarbush president Win Smith. "So many of our guests are Verizon Wireless customers who come from cities like Boston and New York with expectations of cell phone service. Verizon's recent activation makes that a reality."

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $48 billion since it was formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services like Mobile Broadband and V CAST. Regionally the company has invested over $2.2 billion into its New England network since 2000. As the wireless carrier with America's largest 3G network, every Verizon Wireless cell site in New England provides wireless broadband connectivity.

“We’ve always believed that even the most advanced cell phone is only as good as the network it runs on,” said Richard Enright, director for Network Systems Performance for Verizon Wireless. “We continue to aggressively invest into our wireless networks across New England to increase coverage and capacity for our customers.”

Mobile Broadband offers computer users the nation's most reliable high-speed wireless mobile broadband network, operating at average upload speeds between 500 and 800 kbps, and download speeds between 600 kbps and 1.4 mbps over Verizon Wireless’ Mobile Broadband with EV-DO Revision A network. V CAST brings video clips of TV shows, music on demand and other multimedia services to wireless phones.

The company’s ‘nation’s most reliable wireless network’ reputation is based on network studies performed by real-life test men and test women throughout the country. Nationally, these test men and women drive 90 specially equipped vehicles almost 1 million miles annually on Interstate, U.S. and state highways as well as major roads and surface streets in high-population areas, based upon U.S. Census counts, to confirm that voice calls and data connections are successful on the first attempt and stay connected. Vehicles are equipped with computers that automatically make more than three million voice call attempts and more than 16 million data tests annually on Verizon Wireless' network and the networks of other carriers.
