IRVINE, CA — A school nurse needs to call a child's parent. A teenager needs a ride home from summer camp. A first responder must text message her entire team. Whatever people consider urgent, they can depend on the most reliable national wireless network thanks to Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless customers in Los Angeles County are now experiencing increased coverage thanks to three new cell sites:

  • Agoura Hills — Near the intersection of Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Kanan Road and surrounding area, including Twin Oaks Center and Agoura Meadows shopping mall
  • Azusa — Along Arrow Highway and Vincent Avenue
  • Carson — Near Carson Street and 405 Freeway intersection and surrounding area, including Carson City Hall and portion of 405 Freeway

"Our local expansion is just another way of ensuring that Verizon Wireless' network continues to support our leadership in customer loyalty,*" said John Palmer, regional president of Verizon Wireless.

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. The company has invested more than $37 billion in its wireless network over the past seven years. Of that amount, more than $4 billion has been invested in California, helping Verizon Wireless stay ahead of the growing demand for its services and add new capabilities, like Mobile TV.

There are more than 2,300 Verizon Wireless stores nationwide, including those at Circuit City. For more information about Test Drive from Verizon Wireless or any of our products and services, visit a Verizon Wireless Communications Store, call 1-800-2 JOIN IN or go to www.verizonwireless.com.
