Verizon Wireless hits 500 LTE markets, more than 99% covered with LTE

Verizon Wireless is nearing closer to complete coverage and now officially offers 4G LTE coverage in 500 markets across the country. They now cover 298 million POPs with LTE service and cover 99% of their existing 3G network with 4G LTE coverage. In addition to this milestone Verizon is also planning to bring 4G LTE to Alaska within the next month, which has never had native Verizon coverage before. When this happens Verizon will be available in all 50 states with international support for several countries across the globe. After Verizon completes their LTE rollout by the end of 2013 they’ll then bring VoLTE (Voice over LTE) so customers can use data and voice service over LTE, right now only data is done over the LTE network. Customers in a Verizon 4G LTE market can expect to see data speeds of 5-12Mbps down and 2-5Mbps up with many users reporting much faster speeds!
