IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 8 -- /PRNewswire/ -- Even more Riverside County residents, businesses and visitors can now enjoy high-speed wireless data and voice connections along the Highway 74, in the city of Mountain Center, thanks to recent Verizon Wireless network upgrades. Hundreds of upgrades since December 2009 have increased the company's 3G data and voice capacity by nearly twenty-five percent in Southern California. The increased capacity means more users are empowered to surf the web, download applications and content, and exchange email and other messages.
