-- Company Expands Local 4G LTE Network For Residents, Businesses And Visitors
WYNDMOOR, Pa., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Verizon Wireless  recently
activated new 4G LTE coverage in  Wyndmoor, Pa., further expanding the company's
high-speed wireless data network coverage. The expansion provides increased
wireless voice and 4G LTE data coverage north along Stenton Avenue to Gorgas
Lane, south along Germantown Avenue and Pleasant Street, east along Washington
Lane and  Anderson Street, and west along Ardleigh Street and Durham Street.  

4G LTE lets Verizon Wireless customers use their 4G LTE-enabled devices to surf
the Web, post status updates and photos, share music, and download files at
speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on 3G networks.

In real-world, fully-loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless customers
will be able to use their  4G LTE  smartphones, tablets, notebooks, laptop
modems and mobile hotspots to experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits
per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.

"We've always believed the best wireless devices deserve the best wireless
network," said  Mario Turco, Philadelphia Tri-State Region President for Verizon
Wireless. "People everywhere are increasingly relying on their tablets,
smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained.  Our
investment here in the Philadelphia Tri-State region and across the country has
kept us ahead of this consumer trend and underscores our belief that 4G LTE
delivers the best value to customers by maximizing the performance of their
wireless devices."

Verizon Wireless customers can also take advantage of  HomeFusion™  Broadband, a
solution that leverages the power and speed of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE
network to deliver high-speed, in-home Internet access for residential
broadband, particularly in areas where Internet options are limited or are not
currently available.

Verizon Wireless has invested more than  $1.6 billion  in the Philadelphia
Tri-State region network since 2000, including  $186 million  in 2012 alone, to
increase coverage and capacity on behalf of customers.

Currently, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is available in 476 markets
across the United States.  The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers more than
94 percent of the  Philadelphia  region, including  Greater Philadelphia, the 
Lehigh Valley,  Harrisburg,  Scranton/Wilkes-Barre  and large portions of
southern  New Jersey  and  Delaware.

When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices
automatically connect to Verizon Wireless' 3G network, where available, enabling
customers to stay connected from coast to coast.  Verizon Wireless' 3G network
is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and allows customers
in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to take advantage of 4G
LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in their area, or when they
travel to areas already covered by 4G LTE.
