UPDATE: Verizon just told me about 4 more new cell sites in Orange County. The 4 sites were new as of November. See below...
Maybe it’s because AT&T just announced 6 areas in Orange County where it boosted cell reception with a new cell site. I also heard from Verizon Wireless about its recent upgrades.
For Verizon Wireless customers who live, work or drive near a neighborhood in Foothill Ranch and Mission Viejo, check your signal. It should be better after the company added two new cell sites in those cities.
The locations of the new cell sites are:
- Foothill Ranch: 25931 Towne Centre, Foothill Ranch, which improves coverage in the City of Foothill Ranch, along both Portola Pkwy and the 241 Tool Rd.
- Mission Viejo: Near Santiago & Live Oak Canyon. The new site provides new coverage along the terrain challenged Live Oak Canyon Road.
UPDATE: From November, Verizon said these four cell sites in Orange County are also new:
- Anaheim Hills: Auburn – Near Cannon Rd & Via Escola. Improves coverage in the terrain area of Anaheim Hills and helps improve the handoff between MTX51 and MTX55 along Cannon Street
- Orange: South Culver – 241 Toll Road. This site provides new coverage along 241 Toll Rd from north of the 133 & 241 interchange up to North Culver site to the north.
