BASKING RIDGE, NJ — For Verizon Wireless customers, enhancing wireless coverage inside homes where location, geography or structural conditions interfere with reception is easy. All they have to do is purchase the Verizon Wireless Network Extender online, by phone or at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores, and they can enhance the signal inside their homes for use with any Verizon Wireless phone.

The Verizon Wireless Network Extender — a "mini cell site" manufactured by Samsung — is about the size of a wireless router box or small attaché case and routes Verizon Wireless calls through the customer's home broadband Internet connection. Network Extender is easy to set up and ready to use right out of the box, and can provide coverage in an area of up to 5,000 square feet. The price is $249.99, plus local taxes, and there are no monthly fees.
