Verizon Wireless Installs Temporary Cell Site at Rutgers Stadium

In a
continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for Scarlet Knights fans
in the coming months, Verizon Wireless has activated a temporary cell site at
Rutgers Stadium.

The Cell
on Wheels (COW) is a fully functional, generator-powered temporary mobile cell site
that enhances wireless capacity, allowing more customers to use their wireless
phones concurrently to make calls, send and receive text and picture messages,
access the Internet, and download games and ringtones. The company placed the
COW at the stadium this week to handle the spike in calls and text messages
sent to and from fans as the Scarlet Knights kicked-off their 2007 season

last night.

Rutgers is coming off an historic 2006 season and the
excitement is building for another great year,” said Charles Hand,
president of the New York Metro region. “By activating this temporary cell
site, our network is prepared to handle the increased activity as fans pack the
stadium and tailgate in the surrounding area. We saw a big surge in voice calls
and data usage in and around the stadium this week.”

temporary cell site will increase network capacity from Metlers to

Hoes Lane, portions

River Road
and across the river to portion of
main campus. It is part of Verizon Wireless’ continuous effort to stay ahead of
the growing demand for Verizon Wireless voice, data and mobile entertainment
services. The company invested more than $40 billion across the nation in the
past seven years to increase coverage and capacity, and to offer customers the
most reliable service available in the nation.
