Verizon expanding wireless broadband in Eastern Washington, Oregon and Idaho

Verizon’s bringing its wireless broadband network to the farm country of southeastern Washington, Eastern Oregon and Idaho.

On Sunday it’s flipping the swtich on an upgrade that began last August when it acquired Rural Cellular, which served the area under the Unicel brand.

Verizon has converted the cell sites to its network and its upgrading them to provide wireless broadband.

Verizon is opening stores in Baker City, Bend, College Place, Walla Walla, Hermiston, Klamath Falls, LaGrande, Lewiston, Pendleton and Redmond. It’s also extending network coverage to Burns, Dayton, John Day, Lakeview, La Pine, Moscow, Pomeroy, Pullman, Sunriver, Waitsburg and Warm Springs.

Unicel customers’ numbers won’t change but their devices will be operating on the Verizon network after April 5.
