first_imgIn a continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for local residents, Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest wireless provider, has expanded its digital network in Vermont, with a new cell site. The new site, located on an existing silo, provides improved coverage and capacity in Ferrisburg along Route 7.The new site is part of the company’s aggressive multi-billion dollar network investment each year to stay ahead of the growing demand for Verizon Wireless voice and data services, like two-way text messaging and Internet access, in New England.This investment is part of the company’s commitment to offer customers the most reliable service available on the nation’s largest wireless network. The company’s most reliable network claim is based on network studies performed by real-life test men and test women who inspired the company’s national advertising campaign. They conduct more than 300,000 call attempts monthly on Verizon Wireless’ and other national wireless carriers’ networks while traveling over 100,000 miles nationwide in specially-equipped company-owned quality test vehicles.”This network expansion will allow us to meet the growing need of local businesses and consumers for their voice calls and data applications, like our high-speed Express Network (sm) and two-way text messaging service,” said Bob Stott, Verizon Wireless regional president.Express Network is the company’s nationwide high-speed wireless data network, providing fast wireless Internet service, with bursts up to 144 kilobits per second (kbps). Express Network gives users full Internet access, intranet access and traditional email functionality via a laptop at unprecedented speeds for wireless access. Users can expect average speeds between 40 and 60 kbps, significantly higher than speeds being produced by competing technologies and comparable to, if not faster, than what PC users get when using a dial-up Internet service. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $8 billion over the last two years in its nationwide network, offering customers access to the most extensive wireless voice and data network in the United States.last_img read more
