Verizon Expands 4G LTE to New Locations

Verizon just announced that the nation’s largest wireless operator has turned on 4G LTE cellular coverage for six new locations in the United States.

Today, Verizon is still the leader of 4G LTE coverage in the United States as competing cellular carriers like AT&T, Sprint, and T-mobile largely lag behind (although they are consistently catching up).

The six new locations that now have access to Verizon’s 4G LTE network include:

  • Adrian, Michigan
  • Corbin, Kentucky
  • Durango, Colorado
  • Madisonville, Kentucky
  • Marietta, Ohio
  • Mount Pleasant, Michigan

We’re told that in addition to these markets, Verizon has also expanded 4G LTE coverage in Iowa’s Lyon, O’Brien, Osceola, and Sioux counties.

4G LTE offers a theoretical download speed of about 100Mb/s; however, due to the realities of network congestion, download speeds on 4G LTE in real life situations are more realistically about 20-60Mb/s.

Has Verizon’s 4G LTE network reached your neck of the woods yet?
