Innovations In Healthcare, Education, Sustainability And More Fueled By Verizon Wireless' $641 Million Network Investment In California In 2012

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2012, technology solutions made possible by the strength of the Verizon Wireless network helped millions more Americans access preventative healthcare and made one of the largest recyclers in the nation more efficient. School buses outfitted with wireless connections helped students continue learning outside of the school walls and arrive home safely. Businesses kept the lights on and systems running thanks to reliable wireless emergency-backup options. And professional sports teams transformed their on-field and on-court operations using connected tablets. 

"Our technology and networks help to make people stronger by delivering powerful solutions for consumers and businesses," said Walter Jones, West Area vice president of Network, Verizon Wireless. 

Verizon Wireless invested $641 million during 2012 in California to provide new wireless services, expanding network coverage and capacity for customers across the state. Verizon Wireless' network investment in the Golden State now totals more than $7.8 billion since 2000.

Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $80 billion since it was formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide networks and to add new services.

As part of its 2012 network investment, Verizon Wireless expanded its 4G LTE network throughout California including:
