Verizon also has added new cell sites in Berkeley, Fremont and Oakland as part of its $7.8 billion in continuing investment to improve its California network since the company was founded in 2000.
Nationally, a Verizon representative said the company has invested more than $80 billion over that same period to increase the coverage and capacity of its network, and to add new services.
