NEW YORK -- Verizon continued to go the distance in 2009 with its secure, reliable global network, which is the essential foundation for the company's award-winning wireline and wireless products and services for consumer, business and wholesale customers.

Verizon invested more than $17 billion this year in its leading wireless and wireline networks in the U.S. and internationally. The Verizon global IP network serves more than 2,700 cities in 159 countries, and its wireless network reaches approximately 289 million Americans.

"It's no accident that again this year, Verizon's consumer and business services won major industry awards," said Dick Lynch, executive vice president and chief technology officer for Verizon. "The better the network, the better the performance of the applications that ride on them. It's as simple as that."
