Verizon Wireless to expand 3G coverage

Verizon Wireless has just released a press release announcing their plan to double their 3G capacity in Kentucky:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Verizon Wireless has announced today that it is near completion of a major capacity improvement project for its high-speed 3G network in Kentucky this year that will ensure the company continues to stay ahead of its customers’ growing data usage on their smart phones, wireless modems and handsets.

The project has entailed adding 3G capacity on 94 percent more cell sites in Kentucky compared to 2009, thereby doubling data capacity of the network across the state.  The enhancements will provide further value to Verizon Wireless customers in Kentucky who are looking to rely more and more on their wireless devices for accessing the Internet, social networking, viewing high-quality videos, downloading music, games and ringtones, and exchanging email.

“With so many of our customers relying on their devices for much more than just making phone calls, it’s imperative that we stay ahead of their usage habits,” said John Granby, president, Kentucky/Indiana/Michigan region, Verizon Wireless.  “It doesn’t matter how many bells and whistles your smart phone offers if you cannot depend on it to keep you connected wherever you go.  Verizon Wireless is committed to making sure our network has enough capacity to handle the increasing data traffic from our customers’ Internet browsing, tweeting and mobile gaming.”

The company’s ongoing network investment in Kentucky now totals more than $335 million.  Nationally, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $60 billion since it was formed – $5.7 billion on average every year – to increase the coverage and capacity of its premier nationwide network and to add new services.

A refresh and a refocus…

Well, as is proof from that lack of updates and posts recently, I’ve been a busy guy, balancing time with work, starting to put plans together for Abby’s 1st birthday (next week) and trying to grab a hold of as much freelance graphic work as I can, local or not.  Fortunately for me, I have managed to pull in a couple of jobs here and there, which will hopefully build my portfolio and lead to bigger and better jobs.  (fingers crossed)  So with my 10 minutes of success, came about a fan’s page on facebook to compliment this blog and to help display logos and graphics, both used and unused, along with some that are still works in progress.  Along with the fan page came work on a business card design (still in progress) and a completely reworked logo.  Where originally I was going to use PCS as “Parsons Computer Services” where I would be concentrating on computer support and services, I’ve shifted the concentration to the graphic design/corporate identity  side of things, which came about a slightly different branding of “Parsons Creative Solutions” and a new logo.
