Verizon Wireless Activates New Cell Site in Worcester County

Verizon Wireless has activated a new cell site in Worcester County, Massachusetts. The new site increases high-speed wireless data coverage and capacity along the Interstate 90, US Route 9 and US Route 30 highways in Southborough, Framingham, and Ashland, as well as the surrounding area.

The company claims that it has invested over $2.2 billion into its New England network, including over $100 million during the first six months of 2008, to increase the coverage and capacity of its national network and to add new services like BroadbandAccess and V CAST.

Richard Enright, director for network systems performance for Verizon Wireless, said: "We have always believed that even the most advanced cell phone is only as good as the network it runs on. We continue to aggressively invest into our wireless networks across New England to increase coverage and capacity for our customers."
