YORK COUNTY, Pa., Nov. 13, 2012

YORK COUNTY, Pa., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Verizon Wireless recently
activated new 4G LTE coverage in York County, further expanding coverage on
the high-speed wireless data network the company launched earlier this year.

Now, Verizon Wireless customers in the New Park, Delta, Brogue and Hanover
areas can use their 4G LTE-enabled devices to surf the Web, post status
updates and photos, share music, and download files at speeds up to 10 times
faster than customers on 3G networks. Coverage was also expanded around
Spring Garden Hospital and York Industrial.

In real-world, fully-loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless customers
will be able to use their 4G LTE smartphones, tablets, notebooks, laptop
modems and mobile hotspots to experience average data rates of 5 to 12
megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.

"We've always believed the best wireless devices deserve the best wireless
network," said Mario Turco, Philadelphia Tri-State Region President for
Verizon Wireless. "People everywhere are increasingly relying on their
tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained.
Our investment here in the Philadelphia Tri-State region and across the
country has kept us ahead of this consumer trend and underscores our belief
that 4G LTE delivers the best value to customers by maximizing the performance
of their wireless devices."

Verizon Wireless customers can also take advantage of HomeFusion™ Broadband, a
solution that leverages the power and speed of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE
network to deliver high-speed, in-home Internet access for residential
broadband, particularly in areas where Internet options are limited or are not
currently available.

Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.8 billion in the Philadelphia
Tri-State region network since 2000, including $200 million in 2011 alone, to
increase coverage and capacity on behalf of customers.

Currently, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is available in 417 markets
across the United States. The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers more
than 70 percent of the Philadelphia region, including Greater Philadelphia,
the Lehigh Valley, Harrisburg, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and large portions of
southern New Jersey and Delaware.

When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices
automatically connect to Verizon Wireless' 3G network, where available,
enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless'
3G network is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and
allows customers in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to
take advantage of 4G LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in
their area, or when they travel to areas already covered by 4G LTE.
