Verizon 4G LTE Network Now Covers 500 Markets
Verizon has announced that its 4G LTE network now covers 500 markets in 49 states and officially launches next month in Alaska. The company also revealed that 57 percent of Verizon Wireless’ data is carried on its 4G LTE.
The impact of 4G LTE is evident all around us. It has transformed the entire mobile ecosystem, inspiring new types of content to be created and consumed beyond the range of popular limited-range private and public Wi-Fi networks, including streaming video from a train and photo sharing from a mountain peak, chatting on Skype, or listening to Pandora on a long drive. 4G LTE has made the high-speed, high-quality wireless experience a possibility as we travel throughout the United States. And, new uses are still being developed and introduced for appliances, cameras, cars and mobile health devices. By 2020, forecasts from GMSA predict that 4G LTE will enable 24 billion connected devices.
Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network is now available to more than 99 percent of its 3G footprint and to more than 95 percent of the entire U.S. population.
