Verizon Wireless Network Expansion at Temple University

Amidst all the iPhone news from the past few days I just came across the following news release:

In a continuing effort to provide the best wireless service for local residents in Philadelphia, Verizon Wireless, the leading wireless company with the most reliable voice and data network, has expanded its network with a new cell site on Temple University’s campus. The new site increases coverage and capacity along N. Broad Street to W. Huntingdon and Master Streets, as well as Cecil B. Moore Avenue and North 8th Street.

Unfortunately, as a current Cingular AT & T subscriber, I’m still experiencing pretty bad coverage. Perhaps it’s time for a new phone.

The Simple Way

On June 20th, a 7-alarm fire consumed an abandoned warehouse in the Kensington neighborhood in Philadelphia. The Simple Way Community Center at 3200 Potter Street was destroyed as well as at least eight of their neighbors’ homes. Over 100 people were evacuated from their homes, and 400 families are currently without power. See how you can help at The Simple Way.
