Verizon Wireless Expands Wireless Broadband EVDO Rev-A Network in Georgia

Verizon's Georgia EVDO Coverage
Company spends nearly $68 million already in 2008 to expand and enhance coverage and capacity, proving "It's the Network"

ALPHARETTA, Ga., April 21  -- Verizon Wireless, the company with the nation's most reliable wireless voice and data network, announced today the continued investment to enhance and expand its network across Georgia. In the first quarter of this year, the company continued its ongoing network investment across Georgia spending nearly $68 million to date, to enhance wireless capacity and expand service across the state. The company continued to expand its Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) third generation (3G) wide-area network Revision A (Rev. A). EV-DO Rev. A technology provides customers with access to e-mail, everyday corporate data, the Internet and Web-based applications, entertainment content and the ability to upload files nine times faster and download files at speeds as much as ten times faster than customers of other wireless service providers that use different network technologies.

In the first quarter of 2008, new cell towers were added or existing towers were enhanced in the following Georgia cities: Savannah, Cochran, Swainsboro, Camilla, Chamblee, Ft. Benning, Ft. Stewart, Newnan, Alpharetta, Roswell and the Perimeter Mall area in Atlanta. In addition, the company doubled the broadband capacity on over 30 sites in north metro Atlanta. Verizon Wireless also made sure that NASCAR fans could connect with friends and family by utilizing a COW (Cell on Wheels) to handle the high call capacity for the Atlanta Motor Speedway races in early March.

"We continue our investment to ensure we have the best, most advanced services and reliable network in Georgia and across the country. And customers appreciate it. More people continually choose Verizon Wireless over any other wireless company," said Jeff Mango, President Verizon Wireless Georgia/Alabama Region.

"Georgians demand the very best in wireless products and services but none of it matters unless the network is reliable, which is why our focus will continue to be on delivering the best, most reliable wireless network for voice and data."

With the enhanced network, Georgians have even more ubiquitous access to Verizon Wireless' two prime services: BroadbandAccess and V CAST. BroadbandAccess customers with Rev. A-compatible devices 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, which means customers can download a 1 Megabyte e-mail attachment -- the equivalent of a small PowerPoint® presentation or a large PDF file -- in about eight seconds and upload the same-sized file in less than 13 seconds. V CAST is a consumer-oriented multimedia service that gives customers access to the most comprehensive selection of downloadable music, high-quality videos and the coolest 3D games found anywhere.

The company's continued investment in Georgia is part of Verizon Wireless' ongoing effort to expand coverage, improve capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network throughout the country. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $40 billion -- $5 billion on average every year -- since the company was formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services.
