GILLETTE, WY — Wireless users in Wyoming are now experiencing increased coverage thanks to two new Verizon Wireless cell sites.

Network coverage and call capacity have been improved near:

  • Gillette — near the intersection of Curley Avenue and East Lincoln and surrounding area
  • Worland — near the intersection of Main Street and North 7th Street and surrounding area, including Interstate 20 from Highway 435 to County Lane 6
"Our expansion is tied to our commitment to provide the best possible wireless experience for customers. It's just another way of ensuring that Verizon Wireless continues to be the leader in customer loyalty,*" said Melanie Braidich, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

In an industry first, Verizon Wireless is putting customers in the driver's seat to take the nation's most reliable wireless network for a spin.

Verizon Wireless is the only major carrier with a 30-day network test drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn't satisfied and switches to another carrier.

Verizon Wireless has invested nearly $54 million in its wireless network in Wyoming over the past five years to stay ahead of the growth in demand for our products and services and to ensure the most reliable network in the industry.

The company has invested more than $37 billion in the last seven years — $5 billion on average every year since the company was formed — to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services.

The company is committed to offering the best possible wireless experience — quality products and services on the nation's most reliable wireless network and superior customer service at more than 2,200 Verizon Wireless stores nationwide, including Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and Verizon Wireless Stores at Circuit City.
