MURFREESBORO, TN — Residents and visitors in Murfreesboro are enjoying enriched wireless service thanks to a new Verizon Wireless cell site that was recently added to the area. The site expands 3G wireless coverage in Rutherford County, improving coverage along the growing residential area of highway 96 west of I-24 along Franklin Road. The expansion in network coverage and capacity means more calls, e-mails, texts and picture messages, plus expanded wireless access to the Web.

“Murfreesboro’s unique combination of history and innovation is rapidly becoming a destination for families seeking true Southern hospitality, so reliable cell phone service is essential for the community to stay connected in the downtown district,” said Jerry Fountain, president of Verizon Wireless’ Carolinas/Tennessee Region. “Verizon Wireless is dedicated to enhancing wireless coverage for all our customers including those in this wonderful historic area.”

In fact, all Verizon Wireless data and voice services are available to Tennesseans in all 95 counties. In 2008 alone, Verizon Wireless invested $150 million in the Tennessee network, bringing the company’s cumulative investment in the state to over $700 million since 2003. This recent cell site addition is part of the $50 billion capital investment Verizon Wireless has made in its network since it was formed in 2000.

Verizon Wireless operates the nation’s largest, most reliable 3G network* that powers services such as Mobile Broadband and email. Verizon Wireless tests its network and those of its competitors in about 90 specially equipped vehicles that drive 1,000,000 miles annually. The company determines if voice calls and data connections are successful on the first attempt and if they stay connected.

To meet customers’ increasing demand for wireless products and services in this growing community, Verizon Wireless products can be found at the Verizon Wireless Communications Store at 420 Cool Springs Blvd Suite 120, Franklin, TN 37067, (615) 771-6448 or 580 N Thompson Ln., Murfreesboro, TN 37129, (615) 896-2355.
