Verizon Wireless Bolsters 4G LTE Coverage in Canterbury
Aug 19, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Verizon Wireless, operator of a 4G LTE and 3G network, enhanced fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) network coverage in Canterbury, Connecticut.
According to a release, 4G LTE enables Verizon Wireless customers with compatible devices to surf the Web, post status updates and photos, and download files wirelessly at speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on 3G networks.
Verizon Wireless said it debuted its 4G LTE network in Southeastern Connecticut in July 2012. Recently, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network further expanded in Canterbury along Routes 14, 14A and 169.
"4G LTE is changing the way customers interact with the world via next generation apps, devices and solutions," said Dave MacBeth, Executive Director of Network for Verizon Wireless. "By investing in wireless broadband, we're investing in local communities and economies where our customers live, work and play."
As of June 27, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is available to more than 298 million people in 500 markets across the U.S., representing more than 99 percent of the companies' 3G footprint.
The growth of the 4G LTE network has fostered development of new solutions as diverse as LTE-connected cars and remote medical diagnostic options. One solution recently brought to market is the Verizon 4G LTE Router, which can support wired and Wi-Fi-enabled devices simultaneously, allowing users to take it on vacation or business travel to stay connected.
Verizon noted that its customers can also take advantage of HomeFusion-Broadband, a residential Internet solution that uses the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network to bring Internet service to customers with limited broadband options.
The company also offers a full line of 'smart accessories' across the categories of health and fitness, lifestyle and toys that leverage its portfolio of mobile devices and networks.
In 2012, Verizon Wireless completed $256 million in wireless network enhancements across New England, increasing the company's regional network investment to more than $3.3 billion since its inception in 2000.
