CLARKSBURG, WV — To continue to stay ahead of rising demand for wireless voice, multimedia and Internet access, Verizon Wireless has enhanced its local network in Clarksburg, West Virginia and the surrounding area.

The improvements enhance data coverage in the Clarksburg area as follows:

  • Clarksburg;
  • Hepzibah;
  • Stonewood;
  • Anmoore;
  • Nutter Fort;
  • Southwest along U.S. Route 19 from Hepzibah to downtown Clarksburg;
  • East along U.S. Route 50 from Sun Valley Road to just east of Interstate 79;
  • The East Point Shopping Center, and;
  • The area at the intersection of I-79 and County Route 24 including Meadowbrook Mall.

The enhancements provide increased data service in the area, which empowers more Verizon Wireless customers to rely on their wireless phones for social networking, Internet browsing, downloading apps, exchanging email and text, picture and video messaging, as well as making calls.

“West Virginians are increasingly relying on smartphones and applications to manage their busy lives and stay connected at home or on-the-go,” said Mark Frazier, president–Ohio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. “These improvements are part of our continual investment in our network so our customers can use their devices when, where and how they need them.”

These enhancements are part of Verizon Wireless’ continual effort to expand coverage, increase capacity and enhance the quality of its wireless voice and data network in West Virginia. Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $65 billion since it was formed—$6 billion on average every year—to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services.
