Verizon Wireless Expands its 4G LTE Network in Central Texas
DALLAS, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Verizon Wireless customers in more cities of the Central Texas region can take advantage of Verizon Wireless’ 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, the nation’s largest 4G LTE network.
With Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, customers can enjoy the best experience in wireless data usage when they stream video, share music and photos, download files, and surf the Web with speeds up to 10 times faster than before. In the last five months, Verizon Wireless has expanded its 4G LTE network in Central Texas, with new coverage benefitting the following cities and towns:
- Rio Grande Valley
- Big Spring
- New Braunfels
- San Angelo
“Since the beginning of this year, our network team has been working hard to extending the advanced 4G LTE network to more markets in the region,” said region president Frank Antonacci. “We are committed to bringing greater speed, convenience and connectivity to more residents, small businesses and local government in Central Texas.”
4G LTE Devices and Plans
Verizon Wireless customers can purchase a wide variety of the most popular 4G LTE devices that will connect to the nation’s fastest 4G network. Details on available devices can be found at www.verizonwireless.com/4GLTE and information on plans and pricing is available at www.verizonwireless.com/plans.
4G LTE Coverage and Speed
In real-world, fully loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless’ 3G network, enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless’ 3G network is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and allows customers in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to take advantage of 4G LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in their area, or when they travel to areas already covered by 4G LTE.
