MENTONE, IN — Verizon Wireless, the wireless company with the highest customer loyalty, has activated a new cell site in Mentone, which will enable more customers in the area to use their wireless phones concurrently to make calls; send and receive e-mail and text, picture and video messages; access the Internet; view high-quality videos; and download music, games and ringtones, while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.
The new cell site improves coverage along S. State Road 19, north to State Road 10 and south to State Road 14, and from S. State Road 19 west to U.S. Route 331 and east to S 550 W.
“This network expansion reflects our ongoing commitment to meet the growing needs of our customers and to provide them with the reliable, high-quality service they expect from Verizon Wireless,” said T.J. Fox, region president for Verizon Wireless.

A major reason our customers choose Verizon Wireless and stay with us is because we offer the nation’s most reliable network.”
