    Verizon 4G LTE Hits 14 New Markets - Full Press Release

    THE NATION’S LARGEST 4G LTE NETWORK COMES TO 14 NEW MARKETS AND EXPANDS IN FOUR MARKETS ON NOV. 17 - Full Press Release
    BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Verizon Wireless, named the nation’s “Fastest 4G Network Yet” by Popular Science’s 2011 Best of What’s New Awards, and No. 1 on PC World’s 100 Best Products of 2011, is turning on its 4G LTE network in 14 new markets and expanding in four markets on Nov. 17, bringing its blazingly fast speeds to 179 markets across the United States. Consumers and businesses in these areas can choose from 16 4G LTE-enabled devices, including the new HTC Rezound™ and DROID RAZR™ by Motorola, to connect to the fastest and most reliable 4G network in the country.



    On Thursday, Nov. 17, the company will turn on its 4G LTE network in Little Rock, Ark.; Savannah, Ga.; Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, Iowa; Lexington, Ky.; Starkville, Miss.; Kansas City and Springfield/Branson, Mo.; Lincoln, Neb.; Orange County, N.Y.; Greater Providence, R.I.; Rapid City, S.D.; Roanoke, Va.; and Appleton/Oshkosh, Wis. The company is also making major 4G LTE expansions on Nov. 17 in Louisville, Ky.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn.; and Pittsburgh, Pa.



    “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.”



    4G LTE Speed and Coverage



    In real-world, fully loaded network environments, 4G LTE users should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink. When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless’ 3G network, enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless’ 3G network is the most reliable network in the country and allows customers in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to take advantage of 4G LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in their area.



    Reliability: In and Beyond Major Cities



    As the largest 4G LTE network in the country and the first wireless company in the world to broadly deploy 4G LTE technology, Verizon Wireless is building its 4G LTE network with the same performance and reliability for which it has long been recognized. The company’s consistent focus on reliability is based on rigid engineering standards and a disciplined deployment approach year after year. The company’s 700 MHz spectrum gives Verizon Wireless specific advantages with 4G LTE, including a contiguous, nationwide network license.



    Over the past year, Verizon Wireless has also worked to bring its 4G LTE network beyond major cities with its LTE in Rural America program. The company is working with rural communications companies to collaboratively build and operate a 4G LTE network in those areas using the tower and backhaul assets of the rural company and Verizon Wireless’ core 4G LTE equipment and premium 700 MHz spectrum. Already, 12 rural organizations have announced their participation in the LTE in Rural America program and have leased spectrum covering, in total, more than 2.6 million people in rural communities and nearly 82,000 square miles. These companies include: Appalachian Wireless, Bluegrass Cellular, Carolina West/Clear Stream, Cellcom, Chariton Valley, Convergence Technologies, Cross Telephone, Custer Telephone Cooperative, Pioneer Cellular, S and R Communications, Strata Networks and Thumb Cellular.

    This is awesome. Right now, I am exactly 2 miles on the border of our 4g usage in Grand Rapids Mi. I get to use 4g though when I am at work, but it would be nice to use at home as well. The coverage spread should hit me. YAAAAAAAY!
