Verizon has announced plans to launch four new LTE networks and expand two existing networks on June 21st. New networks are planned for Columbus and Seymour, Indiana, Traverse City, Michigan, and Hickory, North Carolina. Existing networks in southeast Massachusetts and Charlotte, North Carolina will be expanded. Verizon has paid special attention to Charlotte, adding distributed antenna systems (DAS), capacity enhancements, and even in-building repeaters in preparation for the upcoming Democratic National convention. Most of these upgrades will remain in place after the convention has ended. Currently Verizon offers 4g LTE service in 258 markets, and plans to cover 400 markets by the end of this year.
