Verizon is marching closer to it’s goal of 147 LTE cities by the end of this year. Today the carrier announced that it has lit up the LTE network in nine more cities, bringing the total number up to 55. In addition to the new cities, Verizon has expanded the coverage in five cities that already have 4G LTE.
Those nine new LTE cities are: Mobile and Montgomery, Ala.; Greater Fairfield and New Haven, Conn.; Gainesville, Pensacola and Tallahassee, Fla.; Fayetteville-Lumberton, N.C.; and Bryan-College Station and Temple-Killeen, Texas. For the first time, people living in those cities can get the full 4G experience out of the Doird Charge, HTC Thunderbolt or one of the 4G mobile hotspots offered by Verizon.
Verizon didn’t forget about those who already have LTE, though. The coverage has been expanded in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, New Orleans, and Philadelphia. So, if you lived in or around any of those cities, try your 4G connection again. You might just find that it works in places where it didn’t before. The network probably still won’t be everywhere you need to be, but at least it’ll reach a bit further. Enjoy your expanded coverage, I’m still waiting for the New York City coverage to expand to Long Island.
