Tomorrow, Oct. 21 at 12:30 p.m. on a conference call with reporters, U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer will announce that his office will be conducting a statewide Internet campaign to identify and locate dead zones in Upstate New York.

Schumer will say the information will be used to help crack down on wireless carriers who are falsely listing their service on coverage maps throughout New York State.

New Yorkers who wish to participate can submit their local cell phone dead zones via the Senator’s website at schumer.senate.gov/wirelessdeadzone.
