INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 21  -- Verizon Wireless announced today it invested more than $106.5 million in 2008 to enhance its digital network in Indiana. The enhancements included building new -- and upgrading existing -- cell sites, increasing new coverage area and capacity within existing coverage area, and completing its high-speed wireless broadband network expansion across its Indiana coverage area.

Since the company was formed in 2000, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $976.5 million on improvements to its network in Indiana, including the following upgrades made in 2008:

  • Sixty-four new cell sites were activated statewide to improve network coverage and capacity, enabling more customers to use their phones concurrently to make voice calls; send and receive e-mail and text, picture and video messages; access the Internet; view high-quality videos; and download music, games and ringtones, while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.
  • Equipment on 122 existing cell sites throughout the state was upgraded, which further improved network capacity.
  • Permanent backup generators were installed at 23 existing Indiana cell sites to ensure network functionality during times of crisis.
  • The company expanded its high-speed wireless broadband network to 72 cell sites across Indiana, including those in Kokomo and many rural communities across the state. With the upgraded network, Verizon Wireless customers are enjoying two prime services:
    • Mobile Broadband, the enhanced high-speed wireless service that equips Verizon Wireless' business customers with a truly untethered mobile office experience, enabling them to wirelessly access their calendars, the Internet, e-mail and critical business information residing behind their companies' firewalls; and
    • V CAST, 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.
