CEDARVILLE, OH — Whether e-mailing a study group, sharing experiences with friends via social media, or calling home for cash, students on America’s college campuses can turn to Verizon Wireless’ largest and most reliable wireless 3G network more than ever, thanks to recent enhancements near their campuses.

In and around Cedarville University, Verizon Wireless engineers have been hard at work expanding network capacity to enable students to take advantage of the company’s high-quality wireless service.

These recent network upgrades at Cedarville University and at college campuses nationwide are part of Verizon Wireless’ ongoing efforts to expand coverage, increase capacity, and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network. Since 2000, the company has invested more than $1.6 billion into its Ohio network, including $335 million in 2009. Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $60 billion since its inception to increase wireless voice and data coverage and add new services.

Other Ohio colleges and universities benefitting from Verizon Wireless network enhancements include:

  • Ashland University
  • Bowling Green State University
  • Cleveland State University
  • Denison University
  • Kent State University
  • Miami University
  • Mt. Vernon Nazarene
  • Oberlin College
  • Ohio University
  • Ohio Wesleyan University
  • The Ohio State University
  • The University of Findlay
  • University of Akron
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Dayton
  • University of Toledo
  • Wright State University
  • Xavier University

Later this year, Verizon Wireless plans to launch its 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless services in 25 to 30 markets nationally. LTE will offer customers who live, work or travel in these markets significantly greater network speed and capabilities than even today’s most advanced 3G coverage.
