Verizon Wireless is starting a cell-phone tower plan rolling!
Due to the pressure exerted by many, including the hardworking Senator Elizabeth Little and our Vos Iz Neias readers, people have taken action.
Verizon Spokesperson, John O’Malley confirmed that the company has found sites from where to create blanket coverage of the area. “This is obviously an area that we and the rest of the industry know needs attention,” he said. “But we will spend more on our network here in New York than any other carrier will.”
Congratulations to Verizon for taking this first major step, and kudos to our devoted readers who have spent valuable time and resources on this crucial issue! All of us share the great “zechus” of toiling in the valuable mitzvah of “Pikuach Nefesh”.
Verizon Wireless is the first responder, and while initially only its customers are the beneficiaries, the company is the modern-day “Nachshon Ben Aminadov.”
Thank you Verizon, we are sincerely grateful for the lifesaving work you have started.

In a statement released exclusively to VIN News, Senator Elizabeth Little stated. “I’m pleased to learn that Verizon Wireless is pursuing a cell phone plan that would ensure coverage on the Northway, and I look forward to learning more about it. They have indicated publicly that the plan is in the very early stages, but have expressed confidence that they will be able to provide the blanket coverage desperately needed on the highway,” she said.
