Verizon introducing 28 new markets to LTE; 11 markets getting LTE expansion
On May 17th, Verizon Wireless will be adding LTE service to 28 new markets. At the same time, 11 markets currently receiving LTE signals will be expanded in order to improve the service. After the work is completed, the carrier will have LTE supported in 258 markets in the U.S. giving it a large head start over other U.S. carriers. Verizon's 4G service will cover two-thirds of the U.S. after the latest additions.

Verizon has some more locations getting LTE in the next 7 months. In fact, 140 new markets will be added to the Verizon LTE coverage map in the next 7 months and by the end of the year, Verizon's LTE service will be available to customers in 400 markets covering more than 49 states. In comparison, AT&T currently has its LTE signal available in 28 markets, covering 74 million Americans. Sprint, while not yet offering LTE service, has started selling LTE enabled phones that will work on its LTE 4G pipeline once service is started.
