About Verizon Wireless’ 3G Network
Verizon Wireless’ “most reliable wireless network” claim is based on network studies performed by the company’s test men and test women while traveling more than 1 million miles across the United States in specially equipped test vehicles. Their testing includes more than 19 million data tests annually on the Verizon Wireless network and other national wireless carriers’ networks to ensure the Verizon Wireless network is the most reliable.

Each year, Verizon Wireless invests billions of dollars in its network, more than any other wireless service provider in the United States. Since it was formed, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $60 billion – $5.7 billion on average every year – to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services.
