Demand Climbs For Wireless Voice, Multimedia And Internet Access In Colorado


DENVER, CO — Wireless users in more Colorado locations are now experiencing expanded voice and data coverage thanks to the addition of new cell sites from Verizon Wireless, the carrier with the highest customer loyalty.

The new sites improve 3G coverage and call capacity for customers in and around:

* Centennial – Near intersection of North Delbert Road and County Road 186 and surrounding area in Parker
* Denver – Colorado Convention Center; Coors Field and surrounding area
* Durango – Near intersection of Highway 160 and Mariposa in south Durango
* Fort Lupton – The intersections of U.S. Highway 58 and Colorado State Highway 52 between Fort Lupton and Brighton
* Greeley – Near the Greeley Mall at the intersection of West 28th Street (U.S. Highway 34) and 47th Avenue
* Limon – In and around the city of Limon
* Thornton – Area at 104th Avenue north to 115th Avenue; south to 100th Avenue; east to Colorado; west to Irma

The recent expansion adds to Verizon Wireless’ $102 million dollar investment in Colorado last year. Nationwide the company has invested more than $45 billion since it was formed – $5.5 billion on average every year – to increase the coverage and capacity of its national wireless network and to add services like BroadbandAccess, V CAST, VZ Navigator(SM) and many more. The company now has the nation’s largest 3G network.

Verizon Wireless is the most widely used brand of service in wireless. The company now serves more than 68.7 million customers nationwide. In the second quarter of 2008, the company delivered nearly 70 billion text messages and completed 121 million downloads of music, videos, games, ringtones and exclusive content, including 36.5 million video and music downloads.

“Our network expansion in Colorado is just another example of how we invest our resources to stay ahead of demand and to make sure that our customers enjoy a superior wireless experience,” said Melanie Braidich, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

“This consistent investment is a key reason Verizon Wireless has ranked first in customer loyalty in the industry in each of the last 15 quarters.*”

Other examples of company leadership include being first to offer nationwide plans with unlimited calling and the only provider to offer a 30-day network Test Drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn’t satisfied and switches to another carrier.

Verizon Wireless’ reputation as the nation’s most reliable wireless network is supported by industry-leading redundancy and maintenance measures. This has proven particularly valuable during natural disasters and other emergencies across the country. Standard Verizon Wireless network-reliability features include battery back-up power at all facilities as well as generators installed at all switching facilities and many cell site locations.
