Calling all you LTE deprived Verizon Wireless customers, get ready. Starting today, November 17, Big Red is spreading its reach across the nation by flipping the LTE switch in 14 new markets. In addition, the carrier will expand its blazing fast coverage in four previous markets – Louisville, Grand Rapids, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh – the same day.
Is your city on the list? Chances are good it is, otherwise it’ll probably be on the way. After today, Verizon’s LTE coverage will be up to 179 markets across the nation.
In less than a year we have introduced our 4G LTE network to 179 markets across the country, covering more than 186 million Americans, said David Small, chief technical officer of Verizon Wireless. We are honored to receive recognition from Popular Science and PC World, acknowledging our technology leadership within the wireless industry. The awards validate our strategy of building and selling services powered by our vast 4G LTE network over the last year, when others in the industry are still formulating their plans.
Cities not making the cut this round need not worry. Through Verizon’s Rural America program, the carrier is working with rural communications companies to bring its 4G LTE to more consumers beyond major cities. Perhaps on your next hunting trip you can take a quick Netflix break on your new Droid Razr using Verizon’s expanded LTE coverage. Also, don’t forget the company is offering double the data for 4G phones. Not a Verizon customer you say? T-Mobile is expanding their 4G reach today as well.
