Verizon Wireless announced that it invested $166 million in 2009 to enhance its digital network in Illinois.

The enhancements included building 96 new cell sites and upgrading equipment on hundreds of existing cell sites to increase coverage and capacity of the company’s voice and 3G high-speed wireless network.
 
“While other wireless service providers played catch up this year building out parts of their high-speed wireless network, we already had that 3G foundation in place across the state,” T.J. Fox, president, Illinois/Wisconsin region, Verizon Wireless, said in a statement.

Verizon intends to double its capacity across its 3G network in the region, according to Fox. Since the company was formed in 2000, Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.3 billion on improvements to its network in Illinois.
