Verizon recently completed the installation of a new state-of-the-art cellular antenna system, which will ensure good connections, expanded bandwidth, and the provision of 4G LTE service for Verizon Wireless customers in campus buildings. Other cellular carriers are expected to join this infrastructure in the future.
