SALT LAKE CITY - When Verizon says, "today we're the best we can be and tomorrow we'll be better," it means it. Over the past five years, Verizon has invested over $350 million in its network across the state of Utah, ensuring its customers have the best possible experience when they're looking to call, post, stream and text.
These sustained enhancements helped the leading wireless provider come out on top in the latest rankings by RootMetrics®. According to the nation's most rigorous, independent study, Verizon was rated #1 in overall network performance as well as data and reliability in Salt Lake City.
Verizon has been able to pull ahead significantly in network performance in Salt Lake City thanks to consistent investment in reliability, innovation and the latest engineering technologies. Much of the investments have come in the form of small cells. It is just what the name implies – a small cell site often hidden in plain sight – on top of traffic signals and utility poles that help boost coverage and capacity in densely populated areas. It's a win-win for the company and its customers as it provides an exceptional network experience.
Small cells not only improve Verizon's 4G LTE network today, they will also provide the foundation for the next generation network: 5G.
"Our network team works 24 x 7 for our customers focused on predictable excellence: providing the largest 4G LTE network, unsurpassed reliability and the best speeds," said Verizon market president Russ Preite.
Building the nation's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network means customers can count on Verizon's network in Salt Lake City and across the country, when they need it most.
