Residents Of Greensburg, Pennsylvania To Benefit From Verizon Wireless Network Enhancements

GREENSBURG, Pa., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To continue to stay ahead of rising demand for wireless voice, data and high-speed Internet access, Verizon Wireless has expanded its local network in the Greensburg area by activating a new cell site. The new site provides more customers in the area with access to its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.

The new cell site in Westmoreland County improves coverage and expands the 4G LTE network in the following areas:
  • North to Route 130;
  • South to Ridgeview Drive;
  • West to the community of South Greensburg, and;
  • East to Unity Reservoir.

The site improves wireless voice and, with 4G LTE, customers will experience data connections at speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. These improvements empower more Verizon Wireless customers to rely on their wireless phones for social networking, Internet browsing, downloading apps, exchanging email and text, picture and video messaging, as well as making calls.

"Pennsylvanians are increasingly relying on smartphones and applications to manage their busy lives and stay connected at home or on-the-go," said Mark Frazier, president–Ohio/ Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. "This new cell site is part of our continual investment in our network so our customers can use their devices when, where and how they need them."

This new cell site is part of Verizon Wireless' ongoing effort to expand coverage, increase capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in Pennsylvania. Verizon Wireless invests on average more than $6 billion annually in its network to stay ahead of the growing demand. The company's ongoing network investment totals more than $70 billion nationally since it was formed. This includes the introduction and continued expansion of 4G LTE.
