$240 Million Invested In Florida Network During 2012 To Enhance Technology, Services For Customers Across State

Additional highlights of the Verizon Wireless $240 million Florida network investment in 2012 include

  • Activation of numerous new transmission sites and upgrades to hundreds of existing locations to reinforce 4G LTE and 3G network coverage throughout the state.
  • Upgrades to five "super-switch" network processing centers in Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Jupiter and Pembroke Pines.  The facilities are designed to withstand Category 5 hurricanes, feature large-scale on-site power generation, and numerous other back-up systems to ensure reliable handling of tens of millions of wireless calls and data transmissions each day.  The super-switches serve as the hub for network operations in the event of hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and any type of disaster response.
  • Installation of in-building systems that use dozens of small wireless transmitters to ensure strong coverage inside high-priority public safety facilities such as police stations, emergency command centers, hospitals and more.
  • Teams of technicians spanning the state in sophisticated vehicles to measure connection quality on the Verizon Wireless network versus other carriers. The local test teams travel nearly 50,000 miles and make millions of voice and data connections each year to ensure network superiority.
