IRVINE, CA — Wireless users in Simi Valley, Calif., are now experiencing expanded voice and data coverage thanks to the addition of one new cell site from Verizon Wireless. The new sites improve 3G coverage and call capacity for customers in and around:

  • West along Cochran Street to Callahan Avenue
  • East down Cochran Street to about Justin Avenue
  • North of Erringer Avenue to Falcon Street and south towards Los Angeles Avenue

The recent expansion adds to Verizon Wireless’ $5.2 billion dollar investment in California since 2000. Nationwide the company has invested $5.5 billion on average every year to increase the coverage and capacity of its national wireless network and to add services like Mobile Broadband, V CAST, VZ Navigator(SM) and many more. Verizon Wireless now has the nation’s largest 3G network.

This network expansion is just one example of how the company invests to stay ahead of demand and to make sure its customers enjoy a superior wireless experience. This consistent investment is a key reason Verizon Wireless has ranked first in customer loyalty in the industry in each of the last 16 quarters.*

Other examples of company leadership include being first to offer nationwide plans with unlimited calling and the only provider to offer a 30-day network Test Drive pledge that pays for calls if a customer isn’t satisfied and switches to another carrier.

Verizon Wireless’ reputation as the nation’s most reliable wireless network is supported by industry-leading redundancy and maintenance measures. This has proven particularly valuable during natural disasters and other emergencies across the country. Standard Verizon Wireless network-reliability features include battery back-up power at all facilities as well as generators installed at all switching facilities and many cell site locations. Only one wireless network is America’s most reliable for calls, downloads and e-mails: Verizon Wireless.
