Verizon To Finally Upgrade Service For The Lakewood Area

Following years of complaints regarding spotty service in the Lakewood area, Verizon started notifying customers today that there will be service upgrades for the area.

“We’re upgrading our network near Lakewood, N.J. 08701 within the next week,” the brief message stated, adding that users may “experience a temporary disruption” for their wireless internet and mobile services.

Customers were also warned that in “limited cases, work may shift out as much as 2 weeks.”

It’s not clear exactly what sort of updates are being added, but options sometimes include adding more capacity on fiber optic cables which allows more data to move through the network and adding bandwidth to the cellular network to accommodate new services like wireless internet service for homes and businesses.

Dropped calls and spotty internet service has plagued Verizon customers in the Lakewood area for years.

  1. Uh let’s hope: hope road, central, new central, Miller, gudz, new Egypt, south lake etc all have zero Verizon data service and horrible cell service.

  2. Why you complaining about Verizon T-Mobile / sprint has zero service in Lakewood.
    Verizon is the gold standard compared to other carriers

  3. Verizon is definitely bringing FIOS into sections of Lakewood. They just finished running fiber optic cable to 2,433 homes in the Leisure Village complex, all underground cable. They used a crew of 50 trucks, 4 men per truck. Still took a long time.
