Verizon’s investment in Alabama has been over $604 million since 2015. I love hearing news about improvements in my home state of Alabama. I’ve lived here since 2004. The state of Alabama statistically is one of the worst states in many categories and I will take ANY improvements.
Verizon investing making the network stronger means more than just the tech, its people. When companies like Verizon invest in a state they are investing in the economy and health of the state.
Another reason it’s important to have these investments is that of security and safety. Alabama deals with natural disasters on a regular basis. Hurricanes and tornadoes rip through the state each year. Communications is an important aspect of relief efforts.
