Verizon to put USD 25 mln into upgrade of wireless network in Florida's Panhandle

Thursday 25 October 2018 | 16:05 CET | News
Verizon said its network is now operational again across Florida's Panhandle, hit hard by Hurricane Michael earlier this month. The carrier said efforts are underway to further stabilise and strengthen its wireless network in Panama City, throughout Bay and Gulf Counties, and across the Panhandle. Verizon also said it will put USD 25 million into building a new advanced and 5G ready wireless network for the area. The upgrade will take place mainly next year. Panama City will then become one of five announced Verizon 5G cities, joining Los Angeles, Houston, Indianapolis and Sacramento.
