Verizon Wireless is investing in New Haven County, Conn., to stay ahead of rising demand for wireless voice, 3G multimedia and Internet access. Regionally, the company has invested more than $2.5 billion into its New England network over the past nine years, including more than $105 million during the first six months of 2009.
“Verizon Wireless’ 3G network coverage across New England is unparalleled,” said director for Network System Performance for Verizon Wireless, Richard Enright. “We’ve invested billions of dollars into New England believing that even the most sophisticated cell phone is only as good as the network it runs on.”
The cell site provides increased wireless voice and 3G data coverage along Route 63, Route 42 and Route 8 in Bethany, as well as the surrounding areas. Expanded 3G data coverage in Bethany allows customers using notebook computers or smartphones the ability to browse the Web faster, quickly download and play music, watch streaming video, send e-mails with attachments, video conference with contacts and more.
