Iconic NYC landmark enjoys network boost

It’s no secret that New York City is one of the most challenging wireless markets in the world. From sky scrapers to subways, Central Park to Times Square, Madison Square Garden to Yankee Stadium,  Verizon’s network has handled anything the Big Apple can dish up—third party testing firms say so.

It’s no surprise then that Verizon is leading the wireless charge in one of the most iconic buildings in the world. Verizon has built and activated a new state-of-the-art distributed antennae system (DAS) in One World Trade Center, offering fast and reliable speeds to its tenants, visitors and tourists.

Verizon customers who work or visit the building can now upload selfies from the 104th floor at One World Trade Center Observatory, and enjoy all the benefits their devices offer.

Verizon is the first and only carrier with activated service in the building to-date—another example of Verizon’s demonstrated commitment to providing a best-in-class wireless experience wherever are customers live, work and play.  Verizon worked with the building developer to design the unique DAS, ensuring fast speeds, reliable coverage and pleasing aesthetics to tenants.

Verizon consistently looks to enhance its wireless networks, investing more than $830 million in the New York-New Jersey region in 2014. Check out some photos below.
