Verizon Wireless is improving the expansion of its 4G Long Term Evolution network, bringing the service to an additional 19 metropolitan areas this week.
As of June 16, the 4G LTE network will be available in 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, SD; Salt Lake City-Ogden, Utah; Spokane, Wash.; and Madison and Milwaukee, Wisc.
“We are proud to help lead across Madison, Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin into the 4G LTE wireless broadband world, helping residents, small businesses and local government connect faster and more fully with each other and those outside our community,“ said T.J. Fox, president-Wisconsin/Illinois at Verizon Wireless.
Verizon, whose first large-scale LTE network launched in December 2010 and covered more than 110 million Americans, now has 74 metropolitan areas covered after the new additions this week. The company announced Thursday it is also growing its LTE network in San Francisco and Detroit and hopes to bring 4G LTE mobile broadband to its entire 3G coverage area by the end of 2013.
