Verizon 4G LTE network surpasses 470 markets


The nation’s largest wireless carrier shows no signs of letting up as the year draws to a close, today announcing a milestone in coverage. With new areas getting 4G LTE coverage over the past few days and weeks, Verizon now blankets 470 markets across the country.

Two years after its launch, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network  offers more 4G LTE coverage than all other competitors’ networks combined, with coverage currently available to more than 250 million people throughout the United States. On Thursday, Dec. 20, the network will expand to offer 4G LTE service in 470 markets throughout the country.

As a refresher, Verizon plans to wrap up its 4G LTE expansion in the middle of 2013, and is well ahead of rival carriers. AT&T recently announced it crossed the 125 market threshold and Sprint this week marked 49 markets of their own.
