WYATT, MO — Verizon Wireless, the wireless company with the highest customer loyalty, has activated a new cell site in Wyatt, which will enable more customers to use their wireless phones concurrently to make calls; send and receive e-mail 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.
The new cell site improves Verizon Wireless voice and data coverage to the city of Wyatt and surrounding areas, including along the following roadways:
- Missouri Highway 60 from west of Interstate 57 toward Route 307;
- Missouri Route 77 south of Wyatt to Route 316; and
- Missouri Route Y from Wilson City to Alfalfa Center.
“Network reliability is the No. 1 reason that customers choose and stay with Verizon Wireless,” said Brendan Fallis, president–Kansas/Missouri Region, Verizon Wireless. “Getting through on the first try and maintaining a connection are important to our customers. We continue to optimize our network so that it remains the most reliable in the nation.”
This network improvement is part of Verizon Wireless’ continual effort to expand coverage, improve capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in Missouri and throughout the country. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $55 billion since it was formed—$5.5 billion on average every year—to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services. In 2009, the company invested more than $61 million in its Missouri network.
