Verizon plans to install "Small Cells"
Verizon Wireless announced this week, beginning the second half of this year, they will begin deploying “small cells” (think tiny cell towers the size of a mini-fridge) around the country. This will help, not only fill in gaps in coverage, but keep the 4G LTE flowing in dense, high traffic areas like malls or business districts. No more dropped calls in busy areas.
You’ll start seeing these small cells popping up on lightposts, building walls and utility poles in your city later this year and combined with Verizon’s Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to help penetrate into marble and building basements. Plus if you still can't get signal in your building, just call 3gstore.com. We have plenty of different repeater setups that will help bring the signal in from the outside.
Verizon has 497 US markets of 4G LTE service and is planning to keep expanding.
