    Verizon wireless: We’re ready for 2011 hurricane season


    BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – With two weeks until the start of the 2011 Hurricane Season on June 1, the Verizon Wireless network stands ready to serve customers in the event of a major storm or emergency.

    Verizon Wireless prepares year-round for natural disasters and other emergencies to provide customers with reliable wireless coverage. Verizon Wireless’ ongoing efforts to establish a reliable network include:

    · Investing $6 billion annually on average in its national wireless network to provide the nation’s largest and most reliable voice and 3G data networks, and its 4G LTE network – the nation’s fastest and most advanced 4G network – in select markets. Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $65 billion in its network since the company was formed.
    · Cells on Wheels (COWs), Cells on Light Trucks (COLTs), and Generators on Trailers (GOaTs) that can be rolled into hard-hit locations or areas that need extra network capacity.
    · Pre-arranging fuel delivery to mobile units and generators to keep the network operating at full strength even if power is lost for an extended period of time.
    · Business continuity/disaster recovery plans so the company can continue vital operations to serve customers during emergency situations.
    · Test men and women who travel more than 1 million miles to measure the quality of Verizon Wireless voice and data service calls across the country.
    · Conducting hundreds of emergency exercises each year, simulating events such as natural disasters, transportation disruptions and power outages.

    The company’s commitment to network reliability, business continuity and disaster preparedness have proven critical during and after past hurricanes and other disasters. Most recently, Verizon Wireless network teams worked round the clock following the devastating tornadoes in Alabama to fix cell sites damaged in the storms and increase capacity. .

    They seem awfully fixated on farm animal acronyms.

    That's good to know. Land lines are one of the last things to get fixed. We rely on cellphones to check on friends and family. Or find out what gas stations are open for our generators.

    Say what you want...during the Tornados that ripped through Alabama 3 weeks ago, I only lost voice service for less than 12 hours...but I still was able to surf 3G data. Verizon did a hell of a job keeping their service going thhroughout all the total devestation in the South East...I applaud them.

    I want directing my comments to anyone in particular...sorry if it seemed as so. I was merely making the statement that unlike AT&T, Verizon does actually "care" about their services...

    Yup, had an f4 run a half a mile by me and only lost voice for about 10 and data for about an hour. Those were some crazy storms.
