Verizon Approaches 500 LTE Markets: Is Your Area 4G Yet?


Verizon already has the largest LTE network in the United States, but it recently launched coverage for six new markets: Durango, Colorado; Corbin and Madisonville KY; Adrian and Mount Pleasant, Michigan; and Marietta, Ohio.

As of May 16, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is available in 497 markets across the United States. Stay tuned for updates.

4G LTE Markets Introduced on May 16, 2013

  • Durango, Colo.
  • Corbin, Ky.
  • Madisonville, Ky.
  • Adrian, Mich.
  • Mount Pleasant, Mich.
  • Marietta, Ohio

By the middle of this year, Verizon plans to cover its entire 3G network with LTE and, considering they are already 95% of the way there, this shouldn’t pose much challenge. If you live in a metropolitan area, chances are you’re already covered. If you’re not sure, head over to the official list of covered cities.

Whether you use Verizon, AT&T or otherwise, I have one question: Do you have the joy of using LTE yet? I’ve had LTE on AT&T for a while and have found it to be faster than even my home Wi-Fi connection. Do the recent Verizon additions make a difference for you? Sound off in the comments!
