The history of Verizon
Verizon officially began in 2000. As you can see, it is a rather young company but has grown exponentially. It has roots in a slightly older company, Bell Atlantic, which was founded in 1983. Verizon came about when two older telephone companies, Bell Atlantic and GTE, were merged.
Verizon Wireless stores are located all acros the U.S. You can use the Verizon Wireless store locater on their website to find the one nearest you.
Verizon provides wireless serivce to approximately 13.5 million people, making it the largest telecommunications provider in the States. Its most successful phone launch was the iPhone 4.
Verizon is the first U.S. phone company to offer roaming services in Cuba.
With the recent re-opening of the U.S. embassy in Cuba, many American travellers have been eager to visit. And if they’re Verizon Wireless customers, they’ll be able to use their phone while on their trip, as Verizon has become the first U.S.-based phone company to offer roaming services in Cuba.
Verizon customers who have plans to travel to Cuba can get coverage there by adding the “Pay-As-You-Go International Travel option.”
Their phone must also be a “world device” – in other words, capable of getting a signal outside of the U.S. They’ll be able to make calls, send text messages, and use data, though the service does come at an additional fee based on international rates.
