Verizon Wireless Notes 1H Test Data

During the first half of 2010, test engineers from Verizon Wireless drove a total of 497,700 miles across the U.S. and conducted 1.69 million voice call attempts and 9.7 million data tests. The testing measured performance and quality on the Verizon Wireless network as well as on the networks of all major competitors.

Data collected year-round by the company's nationwide team of 100 test men and women - the largest single team of systems performance engineers deployed by a U.S. wireless service provider - provide the support for the company's "nation's most reliable wireless network" claim.

The compan said that the data collected by its team over 100 test engineers consistently show that the Verizon Wireless network beats all other carriers. The collected data also helps Verizon Wireless plan its multi-billion dollar network capital expenditure program.
