Verizon offering up anonymous data to improve real-time traffic information

AirSage has been working on the whole cellular data-traffic flow interconnection thing for a while now, and the company has just landed itself a whale of a partner for collecting that data: Verizon. It's said that the integration of anonymous cellular signaling data from Verizon's network will quadruple the number of messages AirSage is receiving, covering 200,000 miles of roadway across the country with improved information on just how screwed you are by that lane-widening project right now. The companies aren't saying how long it'll take to fully integrate the additional data, so in the meantime, just go ahead and give yourself the extra 15 minutes to get to work -- something tells us you'll need it.
