Verizon EVDO Coverage in New York / New Jersey
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

New York/New Jersey, May 29 -- Verizon Wireless announced today that wireless calling, text messaging and surfing the Mobile Web for email and information now are easier and faster for Verizon Wireless customers in:

  • Bergen County, thanks to the activation of the company's two new cell sites in the following areas:
    • In Lodi, along Interstate 80 from exit 64 to exit 63, and along route 46 from Outwater Lane to Summit Avenue.
    • In Cresskill, along Knickerbocker Road from Hamilton Avenue to Willis Avenue, and along Madison Avenue from Pershing Street to Highland Street.
  • Nassau County, thanks to activation of new cell site in Freeport that improves network coverage and capacity along Meadowbrook State Parkway from Merrick Road to Laurette Lane, and along Main Street from Hayes Street to Mill Road.
  • Sussex County, thanks to the activation of the company's newest cell site in Highland Lakes that improves network coverage and capacity in the along Wawayanda Road from Lakeside Drive to Hickory Road.
  • Westchester County, thanks to the activation of the company's newest cell site in Thornwood that improves capacity along Saw Mill River Parkway from Manville Road to Liberty Street.

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

"Reliable networks aren't built overnight," said Pat Devlin, president of the company's New York/New Jersey 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 new enV2(TM) by LG for on-the-go texters and music fans equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard, now enable customers to carry PC- functionality 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 has invested over $2 billion to enhance its New York/New Jersey Metro network and more than $45 billion across the nation since it was formed, to stay ahead of the growing demand for the company's voice, data and mobile entertainment services, like VZ Navigator(SM) (Version 4), which provides audible turn-by-turn directions and real time traffic information; 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 first quarter of 2008 when the company added 1.5 million new customers, and continued its industry-leading customer loyalty rates. Verizon Wireless now serves more than 67.2 million customers nationwide. During the first quarter, the company delivered nearly 58 billion text messages and completed 34.6 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.
