LAS VEGAS -- Wireless users in more Southern Nevada communities are now experiencing expanded voice and data coverage, thanks to the addition of two new cell sites from Verizon Wireless, the carrier with the highest customer loyalty.

The new sites improve overall coverage and call capacity for customers:

  • Along Las Vegas Boulevard and Sands Avenue and surrounding area, including the Sands Expo and Convention Center; and

  • Along the southern end of Nellis Air Force Base and the north end of Hollywood Boulevard.

With the improved network coverage, customers can use their wireless phones and devices to make more calls; send and receive e-mail, text and multimedia messages; download music, games and ringtones; and view high-quality videos all while on-the-go.

The recent expansion adds to Verizon Wireless’ nearly $50 million investment in Nevada last year. Nationwide, the company has invested nearly $44 billion since it was formed – $5.5 billion on average every year – to increase the coverage and capacity of its national wireless network and to add services like BroadbandAccess, V CAST, VZ NavigatorSM and many more.

Demand for Verizon Wireless services across the U.S. is reflected in the fourth quarter 2007 with the addition of 2 million net new customers. The company now serves more than 65.7 million customers nationwide. In the fourth quarter 2007, the company delivered nearly 45 billion text messages and completed 128 million downloads of music, videos, games, ringtones, and exclusive content, including 30 million video and music downloads.

“Our network expansion in Las Vegas is just another example of how we invest our resources to stay ahead of demand and to make sure that our customers enjoy a superior wireless experience,” said Tony Heyman, regional president of Verizon Wireless. “This consistent investment is a key reason Verizon Wireless has ranked first in customer loyalty in the industry in each of the last 13 quarters.”
