Verizon Planning To Light Up Its 200th 4G LTE Market Tomorrow



There’s no denying the fact that Verizon leads the charge in 4G LTE expansion. In fact, come this time tomorrow, over 200 markets will be blanketed in the lightning fast speeds of Verizon LTE. To put things in perspective, AT&T, who recently announced twelve new markets, covers a total of 28 markets. With the majority of devices now being manufactured to take advantage of LTE (including the new iPad) this huge gap in market coverage could very well push a large number of users over to Big Red’s network.

On March 15, Verizon will light up seven new markets as well as expand its LTE service across 17 markets. New and expanding markets include:

    New Markets

  • Dothan and Enterprise, Ala.
  • Naples, Fla.
  • Greenville, N.C.
  • Altus and Durant, Okla.
  • Longview/Marshall, Texas.
  • Expanding Markets

  • Washington, D.C.
  • Elkhart, Ind.
  • Baltimore, Md.
  • Columbus, Miss.
  • Northern N.J.
  • Wilmington, N.C.
  • Duncan, Okla.
  • Allentown/Bethlehem, Harrisburg, Philadelphia and Scranton/Wilkes Barre, Pa.
  • Hilton Head, S.C.
  • Cleveland, Tenn.
  • Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas
  • Kenosha, Madison and Milwaukee, Wis.

Verizon isn’t letting their ginormous lead slow them down either. They have vowed to double that number to over 400 markets covered by the end of the year. While most carriers will eventually catch up, those wanting to drive in the fast lane will most likely have to take the Verizon highway.

    Morgantown, WV will be a new Verizon market for both service and LTE. Confirmed to local authorities when filing for permits to install LTE towers in the Morgantown area starting with the downtown on the Hotel Morgan one of downtown’s tallest structures. Now if they would just follow through covering us with all that LTE goodness and give us some Verizon stores. Verizon plans for the service to be active this summer.
