    Verizon Wireless Expands Its Network in Manhattan With Nine New Cell Sites

    Company Invests More Than $4 Billion Nationally Each Year to Stay Ahead
    of Growing Demand for Wireless Calling, Data Access

    ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In a continuing effort to
    provide the best wireless service for residents, commuters and tourists in
    Manhattan, Verizon Wireless, operator of the nation's most reliable wireless
    network, has expanded its network with nine new cell sites.
    The new Manhattan cell sites will improve network coverage and capacity in
    the following areas:

    -- On the Upper West Side, in the areas surrounding W. 196th Street and
    Fort Tryon Park; St. Nicholas and W. 190th Street and High Bridge Park;
    along Harlem River Drive, from W. 171st to 152nd Street; and along
    Riverside Drive, Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues from 152nd to 144th

    -- On the Upper East Side, between 107th and 81st Streets, from Wards
    Island past 2nd Avenue.

    -- In Midtown, Columbus Circle and portions of Central Park; 41st to 37th
    Streets between 7th and 9th Avenues; near the Midtown Tunnel, between
    1st and 3rd Avenues, from 38th to 35th Streets.

    Verizon Wireless invested more than $5.5 billion in its nationwide network
    last year alone to stay ahead of the growing demand for the company's voice
    and data services, like two-way text messaging, picture messaging and the new
    V CAST service which brings TV and other multimedia services to wireless
    phones over the company's high speed broadband wireless network.
    Demand for Verizon Wireless services continued during the third quarter as
    the company added 1.9 million net new customers. Verizon Wireless now serves
    49.3 million customers nationwide.
    Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess data network is the largest high-speed
    wireless broadband network in the U.S. BroadbandAccess service, now available
    in much of the New York Metro area and in 171 major US cities, provides
    customers with Internet access, access to corporate intranets and traditional
    e-mail functionality via laptop computers and personal digital assistants.
    The company's investment in its wireless network also is part of Verizon
    Wireless' commitment to offer customers the most reliable service available in
    the nation. The company's 'most reliable network' claim is based on network
    studies performed by real-life test men and test women who inspired the
    company's national advertising campaign. The engineers conduct more than
    300,000 call attempts monthly on Verizon Wireless' and other national wireless
    carriers' networks while traveling over 100,000 miles a month nationwide in
    specially equipped, company-owned quality test vehicles.*

    network, serving 49.3 million voice and data customers. Headquartered in

    Wow! :rolleyes: What an accomplishment! 9 new cell sites is certainly a major overhaul of their NYC network which probably has over 500 cell sites already. LOL!
