Verizon Expands 3G EVDO Rev-A To Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course

Casino Visitors to Benefit from Verizon Wireless Network Expansion

GRANTVILLE, Pa., Oct. 22  -- In a continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for its customers in Dauphin County Verizon Wireless has expanded its network with a new cell site. The new site increases coverage and capacity for customers visiting the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course.

The company spent more than $235 million in 2007 to enhance services and coverage throughout southeastern, central and northeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware, bringing the network investment in the region to more than $1.5 billion since 2000. Nationally, the company has invested more than $45 billion since it was formed to offer customers the most reliable service available, including wireless data services such as picture messaging and text messaging and the company's exclusive V CAST service. V CAST brings video clips of TV shows, music on demand and other multimedia services to wireless phones over Verizon Wireless' high-speed EV-DO network. Verizon Wireless' high-speed third generation wireless broadband network has been enhanced with EV-DO Rev. A technology. This enhancement allows customers who use the company's flagship business data service, BroadbandAccess, to interact with Web-based applications, download music over-the-air, access to e-mail, everyday corporate data, the Internet, and more at speeds that are eight to nine times faster than before. For example, 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.

Strong demand for Verizon Wireless services continued during the second quarter of 2008 as the company added 1.5 million net new customers. For the 15th consecutive quarter, Verizon Wireless also led the wireless industry with an all-time high in customer loyalty. The company posted a churn (customer turnover) rate of just 1.1 percent, setting an industry and company record.

Verizon Wireless tests its network and those of its competitors to ensure the Verizon Wireless network remains the Nation's most reliable. Nationally, Verizon Wireless' real-life test men and women drive 98 specially equipped vehicles almost 1 million miles annually on interstate, U.S. and state highways as well as major roads and surface streets in high-population areas, based upon U.S. Census counts, to determine if 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.
