The recent expansion adds to Verizon Wireless’ $4.6 billion dollar investment in California last year. Nationwide the company has invested nearly $45 billion since it was formed — $5.5 billion on average every year — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national wireless network and to add services like BroadbandAccess, V CAST (V CAST markets only), VZ Navigator(SM) and many more.
Verizon Wireless is the most widely used brand of service in wireless. The company now serves more than 67.2 million customers nationwide. In the first quarter of 2008, the company delivered nearly 58 billion text messages and completed 133 million downloads of music, videos, games, ringtones, and exclusive content, including 34.6 million video and music downloads.
"Our network expansion in California is just another example of how we invest our resources to stay ahead of demand and to make sure that our customers enjoy a superior wireless experience," said John Palmer, regional president of Verizon Wireless. "This consistent investment is a key reason Verizon Wireless has ranked first in customer loyalty in the industry in each of the last 14 quarters."
Other examples of company leadership include being first to offer nationwide plans with unlimited calling and the only provider to offer a 30- day network "Test Drive" pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn’t satisfied and switches to another carrier. [May 27, 2008]
