Verizon Wireless (News - Alert), which operates one of the nation's largest 4G LTE networks and the largest 3G network, is all set to bring its wireless connectivity solution to Salisbury, Md. on April 19.
Once Verizon Wireless turns on its 4G LTE (News - Alert) network in the city of Salisbury, customers will be able to access the Internet faster, listen to music or watch video on their phones with ease, use thousands of apps, and continuously stay in touch with family and friends, all with wireless speeds up to 10 times faster than before.
"The future is here in Salisbury and it is Verizon Wireless 4G LTE," said Mike Maiorana, regional president for Verizon Wireless in Maryland, Washington, DC and Virginia, in a statement.
"Our commitment to 4G LTE is bringing customers a level of wireless data service with upload and download speeds and connectivity that is revolutionizing the way we communicate," Maiorana added.
Officials with Verizon Wireless said that since its launch on Dec. 5, 2010, the company has expanded its 4G LTE network to include more than 200 million people in 203 markets across the country and currently supports more than 20 4G LTE devices, including a wide variety of tablets, smartphones, hotspots and more.
In real-world, fully loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
Recently, Verizon Wireless activated its new 4G LTE service in Vernon, CT. This private investment further expands 4G LTE coverage in Vernon along Interstate 84, Route 30 and in the vicinities of Bolton and Tunnel Roads.
Within Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE service area, Verizon customers with 4G LTE-enabled devices can post status updates and photos, surf the Web, share music, and download files at speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on outdated 3G networks.
