Verizon Wireless Increases 3G / EVDO Capacity in Rochester and Western, NY

Additional Capacity Needed to Meet Growing Demand for Wireless Broadband Service

ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 19  -- Verizon Wireless announced today it has increased its wireless broadband capacity on its Rochester-area network. The additional capacity, added to more than 10 local cell sites in the Rochester area more than 25 cell sites across the Buffalo-Niagara region and the Southern Tier, will help the company stay ahead of the growing demand for wireless Internet access as more of its customers switch to smartphones and adopt wireless data services such as V CAST and V CAST Music with Rhapsody, and MobileBroadband, the company's high-speed wireless broadband network geared toward mobile professionals and business customers. Verizon Wireless launched its MobileBroadband service in Rochester in July 2005.

"As wireless service evolves, more and more customers are discovering the benefits of wireless broadband connectivity," said Marquett Smith, president of Verizon Wireless' Upstate New York Region. "As more customers use our wireless data services, we need to increase our local network capacity to meet the increased demand."

This network enhancement is part of the company's aggressive multi-billion dollar network investment each year to stay ahead of the growing demand for Verizon Wireless' voice and data services. The company has invested more than $50 billion since it was formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services. This year, the company plans to invest more than $100 million in its Upstate New York network, bringing its total network investment in the region to more than $1 billion since 2001.

Strong demand for Verizon Wireless' services continued during the first quarter of 2009 as the company added 1.3 million net new customers. Verizon Wireless, the wireless company with the highest customer loyalty, reported the lowest customer turnover (highest customer loyalty) rate in the industry -- 1.47 percent in the first quarter -- for the 18th consecutive quarter.

The company's "nation's most reliable wireless network" reputation is based on network studies performed by real-life test men and test women throughout the country. These engineers drive nearly 100 specially equipped vehicles more than 1 million miles annually on Interstate, U.S. and state highways, as well as major roads and surface streets. Test vehicles are equipped with computers that automatically make more than 3 million voice call attempts and more than 16 million data tests annually on Verizon Wireless' network and the networks of other carriers.
