When you join Verizon

Verizon is one of the world’s leading providers of technology and communications services, transforming the way we connect across the globe. We’re a diverse network of people driven by our shared ambition to shape a better future.

Customer demand for wireless data service keeps growing, and to stay ahead of demand, we’re deploying new technology—small cells. Small cells add coverage and capacity, but at a fraction of the size of a traditional cell site.
