INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Verizon Wireless has activated a new cell site in downtown Indianapolis that improves network coverage and capacity in Lucas Oil Stadium, enabling more customers to use their wireless phones concurrently to make voice calls; send and receive email and text, picture and video messages; access the Internet; view high-quality videos; and download music, games and ringtones, while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.
“Football fans rely on their wireless phones before, during and after games for everything from keeping in touch with friends and family to checking other sports scores from our ESPN MVP service,” said Greg Haller, president–Indiana/Kentucky/Michigan Region, Verizon Wireless. “This new cell site helps to ensure that customers inside Lucas Oil Stadium will enjoy the same reliable service they have come to expect from Verizon Wireless wherever they use our network.”
The new cell site is part of Verizon Wireless’ continual effort to expand coverage, increase capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in Indiana and throughout the country. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $45 billion since it was formed—$5.5 billion on average every year—to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services. More than $931 million of this investment has been spent in Indiana since 2000. In 2007, the company invested more than $136 million in Indiana network improvements.
