ORLANDO, FL — Verizon Wireless has activated a new advanced digital cell site along Laurel Manor Drive in Lady Lake, designed to provide enhanced wireless service to The Villages retirement community, as well as the growing number of new restaurants and businesses in the area.

With the new site – which utilizes high-speed Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) Revision A (Rev.

Customers using BroadbandAccess, the company’s high-speed business data service, can now expect average download speeds of 600 kilobits per second (kbps) to 1.4 megabits per second and average upload speeds of 500-800 kbps.

The new cell site is part of the company’s continuing investment to expand coverage, increase capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in Florida and throughout the country. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.6 billion in Florida and more than $45 billion nationally since the company was formed. The company spent $178 million to enhance services and coverage throughout Florida during 2007 alone.
