Verizon Expanding 4G LTE To New Markets, 304 Total

Verizon just announced their full expansion for 4G LTE tomorrow which includes a total of 46 new markets and 22 expansions. Most of these places have already been announced by Verizon in separate releases but it’s good to see Big Red giving all of them to us in one sweep. If you live in one of these areas with a 4G LTE device on Verizon then you can prepare for some nice fast data speeds and you might want to check if they’re already live as Verizon often likes to flip the switch on new markets a few days early. Verizon is definitely working to cover the entire nation with LTE as this marks 304 markets with LTE and they hope to cover their entire 3G coverage area with LTE by the end of next year. Today’s expansion also dwarfs AT&T’s expansion to just a couple of new markets today as AT&T seems to be going for a slow and steady rollout pace whereas Verizon is just pushing it out to everybody. Are you in one of these areas that were announced? Tell us how your new LTE is in the comments.
