IRVINE, CA — Residents in San Bernardino County, California can now make more calls, thanks to Verizon Wireless' construction of new cell sites in Apple Valley, Chino, Fontana, Ontario and San Bernardino.

  • Chino — Central Boulevard from Riverside Drive and West Phillips, including a portion of the 60 Freeway

"A school nurse needs to call a child's parent…A college student wants a ride home for the weekend…A first responder must e-mail her team…Whatever you consider urgent, you can depend on the most reliable national wireless network thanks to our $35 billion investment in it over the past seven years," said John Palmer, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

The company's most reliable network claim is based on network studies performed by the real-life test men and test women throughout the country who inspire Verizon Wireless' national advertising. These engineers conduct more than 750,000 voice call attempts and more than four million data tests quarterly on Verizon Wireless' and other national carriers' networks while traveling over 240,000 miles quarterly in specially equipped, company-owned test vehicles.
