Verizon LTE to 19 more cities on Thursday
Earlier this year, Verizon promised to bring LTE coverage to 145 new markets this year. On Tuesday, Verizon announced 19 new markets which will have LTE turned on this Thursday. This brings the total number of markets with LTE service to 74, so Verizon is more than half way to their 2011 goal for new markets. Verizon has said that their entire network will have LTE added by 2013.

In addition to the 19 new markets, Verizon announced that service would be expanded in San Fransisco and Detroit on the same date. The 19 new markets are: Fresno and Sacramento, Calif.; Hartford, Conn.; Boise, Idaho; Fort Wayne and Indianapolis, Ind.; Flint, Grand Rapids and Lansing, Mich.; Dayton, Ohio; Erie, Harrisburg and State College, Pa.; Greenville-Spartanburg,S.C.; Sioux Falls, S.D.; Salt Lake City-Ogden, Utah; Spokane, Wash.; and Madison and Milwaukee, Wis.

And for an easy check of the 145 markets Verizon has planned to light up with LTE in 2011, with those covered (or to be covered on Thursday):
