Verizon's New Jersey EVDO Coverage
Investing to Stay Ahead of Growing Demand for Wireless Calling, Data Access and Music as Area Businesses and Consumers Increasingly Rely on All-in-One Wireless Devices

ORANGEBURG, N.J., Feb. 21  -- Wireless calling, text messaging and surfing the Mobile Web for email and information now is easier and faster for Verizon Wireless customers in Staten Island, thanks to the activation of the company's newest cell sites.

The new Staten Island cell sites improve network coverage and capacity in the following areas:

  • Near St. John's University, along Van Duzer Street from Hillside Avenue to Broad Street.
  • In the vicinity of Sea View Hospital, along Brielle Avenue from Rockland Avenue to Bradley Avenue.

Coverage improves in Morris County as well, thanks to the activation of the company's newest cell sites in Parsippany, Jefferson and Rockaway.

The new Morris County cell sites improve network coverage and capacity in the following areas:

  • In Parsippany, along Route 287 between mile marker 42 and 43 and along Intervale Road from Route 202 to Glen Road, including the residential area near Greenbank Road.
  • In Jefferson, along Ridge Road from Holland Mountain Road to Berkshire Valley Road and along Route 699 from Cross Road to Cozy Lake Road.
  • In Rockaway, along Meridan Road from Green Pond Road to Old Beach Glen Road and along Green Pond Road from Leif Ericson to Upper Hibernia Road.
Coverage also improves in Essex County, thanks to the activation of the company's newest cell sites in Livingston, Cedar Grove and Newark.

The new Essex County cell sites improve network coverage and capacity in the following areas:

  • In Livingston, along Old Short Hills Road from Great Hill Road to Northfield Avenue, including St. Barnabas Hospital.
  • In Cedar Grove, along Route 23 from Bloomfield to East Bradford Avenue.
  • Newark Liberty International Airport, including the baggage and lounge areas of the terminals.

With the improved network coverage, more customers can use their wireless phones to make calls; send and receive email and text, picture and video messages; download music, games and ringtones and view high-quality videos while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.

"Reliable networks aren't built overnight," said Mike Haberman, executive director of network for the company's New York Metro Region. "Today's wireless customers demand so much more than voice service and this network expansion reflects our ongoing commitment to stay ahead of the curve. New and exciting multimedia devices, like the Verizon Wireless Voyager with a touch-screen and full keyboard, now enable customers to take PC-functionality with them in the palms of their hands. We will continue to efficiently invest in network enhancements to deliver the most reliable voice, data and multimedia services available."

Verizon Wireless invested over $2 billion to enhance its New York Metro area network and more than $40 billion across the nation since 2000 to stay ahead of the growing demand for the company's voice, data and mobile entertainment services, like VZ Navigator, which provides audible turn-by-turn directions, V CAST Mobile TV, offering broadcast quality mobile television and V CAST Music which allows customers to download full songs directly to their V CAST-capable wireless phones and Microsoft® Windows® XP-based PCs.

Demand for Verizon Wireless services continued during the fourth quarter of 2007 when the company added 2 million new customers, and continued its industry-leading customer loyalty rates. Verizon Wireless now serves more than 65.7 million customers nationwide. During the fourth quarter, the company delivered nearly 45 billion text messages and completed 128 million downloads of music, videos, games ringtones, ringback tones and exclusive content, including 30 million video and music downloads.

In the New York Metro area, 100 percent of Verizon Wireless' EVDO network has been upgraded with faster Revision A technology. Customers who use the company's flagship business data service, BroadbandAccess, now can interact with Web-based applications and access e-mail, everyday corporate data and the Internet at the highest wireless speeds available.

Nationally, Verizon Wireless' real-life test men and women drive 98 specially equipped vehicles nearly one million miles each year on Interstate, US and state highways as well as major roads and surface streets in high- population areas, based upon US Census counts, to confirm that voice calls and data connections are successful on the first attempt and stay connected. Vehicles are equipped with computers that automatically make more than three million voice call attempts and more than 16 million data tests annually on Verizon Wireless' network and the networks of other carriers.
