IRVINE, Calif.,  Feb. 1, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- In 2012, technology solutions
made possible by the strength of the Verizon Wireless network helped millions
more Americans access  preventative healthcare  and made one of the largest
recyclers in the nation  more efficient. School buses outfitted with wireless
connections helped students continue learning outside of the school walls and
arrive home safely. Businesses kept the lights on and systems running thanks to
reliable wireless emergency-backup options. And professional sports teams
transformed their  on-field  and  on-court  operations using connected tablets. 
 

"Our technology and networks help to make people stronger by delivering powerful
solutions for consumers and businesses," said  Walter Jones, West Area vice
president of Network, Verizon Wireless.   

Verizon Wireless invested  $641 million  during 2012 in  California  to provide
new wireless services, expanding network coverage and capacity for customers
across the state. Verizon Wireless' network investment in the Golden State now
totals more than  $7.8 billion  since 2000.  

Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than  $80 billion  since it was
formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide networks
and to add new services.

As part of its 2012 network investment, Verizon Wireless expanded its 4G LTE
