Verizon is extending its free mobile hotspot functionality with its 4G LTE smartphones
Knowing that Verizon is going to bring its 4G LTE network to 19 more cities come this Thursday, customers in those specific areas will be happy to know that Verizon has extended the free mobile hotspot functionality with its line of 4G LTE equipped smartphones.

Already, we’ve seen Big Red extend the free mobile hotspot trial to June 16th, but they’re once again pushing it to the later date of July 6. Naturally, this will undoubtedly ring a bell with existing customers with 4G LTE smartphones – like the recent LG Revolution. As much as some people out there are hoping to see it extended even further, those who wish to continue tethering will have to shell out some kind of monthly fee – though, the actual pricing is still unknown at this point. However, it’s known that a software update will be pushed out some time around July 6, where upon installation, will remove the mobile hotspot offer.

In the meantime, feel free to continue using that ever-useful feature without worries – especially when Verizon’s 4G LTE network is wickedly fast.
