New 4G LTE Service for Verizon Customers

Verizon Wireless, a 4G LTE wireless network provider, has recently enhanced 4G LTE coverage throughout Connecticut, enabling its devices full Internet capabilities. This includes posting status updates, photos, browsing the Web, sharing music, and downloading files at speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on 3G networks.

With an investment of more than $3 billion to its New England network, and more than $297 million in 2011 alone, Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers within the coverage area should experience data rates of approximately five to twelve megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink, and two to five Mbps on the uplink.

Executive director for Network for Verizon Wireless, Richard Enright, elaborated a bit more on the company’s efforts to keep their customers technologically satisfied. “We’ve always believed that the best wireless devices deserve the best wireless networks,” he said. “People across Connecticut are increasingly relying on tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained. Our investment in Fairfield County – and across New England – has kept us ahead of these consumer trends and underscores our belief that 4G LTE delivers the best value to customers by maximizing the performance of their wireless devices.”

The 4G LTE network, as of June 21st, now covers more than two-thirds of the U.S. population, allowing consumers in 304 markets to take advantage of fast speeds with a wide variety of 4G LTE devices. Verizon’s 3G network also allows customers to stay connected even outside the LTE coverage area.

The 4G LTE network was profoundly announced as the “Fastest 4G Network Yet” by popular Science’s 2011 Best of What’s New Awards, and ranked No. 1 on PC World’s 100 Best Products of 2011. 

Verizon is a sponsor of ITEXPO West 2012. To be held Oct. 2-5 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, TX, ITEXPO is the world’s premier IP communications event. For more information on IEXPO West 2012 click here.
