High-Speed Network Gives Verizon Wireless Customers Access to Fast Wireless Internet, Email, Mobile Music, Videos and More
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio, Aug. 1 -- Verizon Wireless has extended its wireless voice and data network to portions of Ross and Pike counties, giving its customers here direct access to the nation's most reliable wireless network. This expanded coverage means that both new and existing customers will enjoy Verizon Wireless' reliable network throughout the region. Additionally, customers in the area will have access to advanced wireless features such as picture, video and animated messaging.
The new network coverage comprises Chillicothe as well as the towns of Frankfort, Andersonville, Anderson, Bourneville, Spargursville, Brownsville, Massieville, Piketon, Waverly and Beaver. The network expansion includes:

    -- U.S. Route 35 from Fairview southeast to Chillicothe;
    -- U.S. Route 50 from Bainbridge east to Schrader;
    -- U.S. Route 23 from the Ross/Pickaway County border at Kingston south to
       the Scioto County border at Wakefield;

Investing approximately $6.5 million in the expansion of its network, Verizon Wireless has constructed 18 new cell sites throughout the new markets enabling Verizon Wireless customers living in and visiting the area to take advantage of enhanced wireless phone services while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.

"This network enhancement reflects our ongoing commitment to meet the growing needs of our customers and to provide them with the reliable, high quality services they expect from Verizon Wireless," said Roger Tang, president-Ohio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. "Wireless consumers today understand that value is not defined by price alone. A major reason our customers choose Verizon Wireless and stay with us is because we offer the nation's most reliable network. And now, we offer that reliability directly to residents in Chillicothe and neighboring towns."

With Verizon Wireless, local residents now have access to the company's nationally recognized customer service and advanced features such as Get It Now® applications. Verizon Wireless customers can simply download these applications -- such as ringtones, games and more -- to their handsets and purchase them directly from these devices.

"We are always working to increase our network coverage and reliability, and our expansion to Athens and the surrounding counties is an important part of this commitment," said Tang. "Local residents, students, businesses and visitors will have direct access to the benefits of Verizon Wireless."

The new coverage will also give Verizon Wireless customers the convenience of the company's IN Network, which provides customers the ability to talk and send text and multimedia messages to other Verizon Wireless subscribers free.

The expanded service is part of Verizon Wireless' continual effort to improve coverage and capacity, and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in Ohio and throughout the country. Verizon Wireless 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 network and to add new services. Last year, the company invested nearly $190 million in its Ohio network improvements.
