Verizon’s XLTE service is an enhanced version of its regular LTE network that utilizes AWS spectrum to offer faster peak data speeds. Ol’ Red’s LTE network has been around since late 2010, and so it was starting to get a bit congested with all of the users hopping onto it. This XLTE service aims to address that by offering faster network speeds to users with XLTE-capable devices.
