Verizon 4G LTE network to hit 33 new markets on July 19Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Pay attention, Verizon customers, because you've got some more 4G LTE headed your way. Verizon today announced that it's launching its LTE network in 33 new markets on July 19, some of which we got wind of earlier this month. The carrier is also expanding its existing LTE footprint in 32 other markets. The full list of new and expanding markets presented in handy bullet list form at the bottom of this post.
This latest 4G expansion brings Verizon up to a total of 337 LTE markets. Verizon has said in the past that its goal is to have a total of 400 LTE-enabled markets by the end of the year, and Big Red says that it's on track to surpass that mark. As for the cities that are gaining Verizon LTE service tomorrow, it's worth noting that Verizon has been known to flip the switch on its 4G network in new areas a tad ahead of the official launch date, so you may want to fire up any LTE-capable devices you may have and see if you're already getting coverage.
