Today Verizon Wireless announced 4G LTE availability in Liberal, KS; Warren, PA and Parkersburg, WV bringing their LTE coverage to 500 markets across the country.

Customers on Verizon’s network can anticipate speeds of 5-12Mbps down and 2-5Mbps upload with many customers seeing substantially faster speeds. Verizon plans to cover their entire 3G network with 4G LTE by the end of 2013 and already has 90% of their customer base covered with LTE!
