Verizon Wireless has activated a new cell site in Warren.
The new cell site, which is equipped with a permanent backup generator for times of emergency, improves voice and data coverage in Warren along Nine and 10 Mile roads between Van Dyke and Ryan roads.
“As our customers continue relying on their wireless devices even more for everything from making calls and sending messages to surfing the Internet and getting e-mail, we closely analyze their usage and make improvements accordingly,” said Greg Haller, president of the Michigan-Indiana-Kentucky Region for Verizon Wireless. “The most advanced device is only as good as the network it runs on. That’s why we aggressively invest in our Michigan network to increase coverage and capacity for our customers and continue to raise the bar in network reliability.”
Verizon Wireless has invested more than $60 billion since it was formed — $5.7 billion on average every year — to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services.
In Michigan, Verizon Wireless has more than 2,100 employees and 65 company-owned retail locations in more than 40 cities.
