HONOLULU, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --In 2012, technology solutions made
possible by the strength of the Verizon Wireless network helped millions more
Americans access preventative healthcare and made one of the largest recyclers
in the nation more efficient. School buses outfitted with wireless
connections helped students continue learning outside of the school walls and
arrive home safely. Businesses kept the lights on and systems running thanks
to reliable wireless emergency-backup options. And professional sports teams
transformed their on-field and on-court operations using connected tablets.

"Our technology and networks help to make people stronger by delivering
powerful solutions for consumers and businesses," said Russ Preite, region
president for Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless invested $20.7 million during 2012 in Hawai'i to provide new
wireless services, expanding network coverage and capacity for customers
across the state. Verizon Wireless' network investment in the Aloha State now
totals more than $315 million since 2000.

Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $80 billion since it was
formed to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide
networks and to add new services.
