Cell calls, downloading should be faster, clearer

by Jeb Bing

The Verizon Wireless Network announced this week that it has added new 4G LTE cell sites along Vineyard Avenue, Isabel Avenue and Stanley Boulevard.

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.

"The network upgrade is part of the company's ongoing investment to keep improving and strengthening the nation's largest and most reliable wireless network," the Verizon spokesman said.

Other sites in Alameda County that now have improved wireless coverage are:

* Alameda: Along Foothill Boulevard, Shoreline Drive, Willow Street and 9th Street;

* Berkeley: Along Solano Avenue, Cedar Street, Hopkins Street, 8th Street, Broadway Terrace, Contra Costa Road, Moraga Avenue and College Avenue;

* Fremont: Along Auto Mall Parkway, HI-880, Highway 262, S. Grimmer Boulevard and I-680;

* Oakland: Along MacArthur Boulevard, Grand Avenue, 27th Street, Adams Street and Telegraph Avenue..
