Verizon Wireless' 2012 Network Investment Tops $186 Million In Philadelphia Tri-State Region
PHILADELPHIA, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
WHO: Verizon Wireless, operator of the nation's largest 4G LTE network and largest, most reliable 3G network
WHAT: Verizon Wireless ranked highest among all other national wireless providers in the Mid-Atlantic Region, including central and eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware, which comprises Verizon Wireless' Philadelphia Tri-State Region, in the J.D. Power and Associates 2013 Wireless Network Quality Performance Study(SM), Volume 1, issued Thursday. This is the 17th consecutive reporting period that Verizon Wireless ranks highest in the Philadelphia Tri-State region.
The J.D. Power and Associates study measured network quality among U.S. wireless service providers. More than 27,000 wireless subscribers were surveyed by J.D. Power and Associates between July and December 2012 about their experiences with wireless voice, text messaging and data usage. Based on their responses, Verizon Wireless performed above the regional average in all six regions and ranked highest among national wireless companies in five regions, including the Philadelphia Tri-State Region.
WHERE: Throughout the Philadelphia Tri-State Region, including central and eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware.
BACKGROUND: Two years after its launch, the Verizon 4G LTE network is available to more than 273 million people across the U.S. – close to 89 percent of the U.S. population. For a full list of 4G LTE markets please visit www.verizonwireless.com/lte.
In 2012, Verizon Wireless completed $186 million in wireless network enhancements across the Philadelphia Tri-State Region, increasing the company's regional network investment to $1.8 billion since its inception in 2000. The rapid rollout of 4G LTE, which launched in the Philadelphia region in December 2010, now covers 94% of the region's population and will continue to grow in 2013 with 4G LTE technology scheduled to cover the company's entire nationwide footprint by the middle of the year.
"In the two years since we first launched 4G LTE in the Philadelphia region and across the country, the '4G LTE ecosystem' has expanded from a few smartphones and laptop modems to include dozens of smartphones, tablets, mobile hotspots, modems and machine-to-machine devices," said Mario Turco president of the company's Philadelphia Tri-State Region. "Even more exciting for our consumers and business customers is that more devices and applications that run on the 4G LTE network are being developed every day. Our continuing aggressive investment in 4G LTE technology and other enhancements to our local network will ensure our customers have the very best technology at their disposal when they use their wireless devices."
