Verizon hits 500 LTE markets; VoLTE-compatible phones due 2014
Verizon announced this week that the carrier now has 500 markets across the United States which offer 4G LTE speeds. Parkersburg, W.Va., became the lucky city to see the monumental mark and will play host to a number of related activities from Verizon over the coming days.
After getting underway in December 2010, Verizon’s 4G LTE network is now considered “substantially complete” as it covers more than 99 percent of Verizon Wireless’ 3G network.

Looking ahead, Verizon recently indicated that Voice over LTE (VoLTE) phones will be coming by the end of 2014. These data-driven devices will allow users to talk and browse the web at the same time. AT&T, for its part, has not been shy about promoting this particular feature in their ad campaigns over the last few years.
Rather than rolling out individual markets with VoLTE, it’s more akin to flipping a giant “on/off” switch. In other words, all of those under the LTE coverage will be able to pair better quality voice and data services at the same time.
