Verizon flips the LTE switch on in 11 new markets
Today, Verizon Wireless flips the switch on 11 new LTE markets bringing the number of Americans covered to well over 200 million. Big Red is also expanding coverage in seven already existing markets, with the total number of LTE locations stateside reaching 190 markets.

Today, 4G LTE lights up in:
  • Dover, Del.; 
  • Lafayette, Ind.; 
  • Fitchburg/Leominster, Mass.; 
  • Duluth, The Rochester Area and St. Cloud, Minn.; 
  • Manchester/Nashua, N.H.; 
  • Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; 
  • Findlay/Tiffin and Youngstown/Warren, Ohio; 
  • and Indiana, Pa.  

The seven expanded markets are San Diego, San Francisco, Washington, D.C.; Savannah, Ga.; Chicagoland, Ill.; and Baltimore and Hagerstown, Md.

Even though it covers more people, Verizon’s LTE network still delivers blazing fast speeds of 5Mbps to 12Mbps on the downlink, while upstream speeds range between 2Mbps and 5Mbps.
