Verizon Turns On 4G LTE in 29 More Cities
Following AT&T’s 4G LTE expansion just earlier this week, Verizon has come around the corner and show everyone who’s the boss. Verizon has announced just today that they have turned on 4G LTE cellular data in 29 more locations in the United States, increasing the already top-notch 4G LTE cellular coverage for the carrier.
Apple's latest iOS devices can tap into the power of 4G LTE, including the iPhone 5, iPad with retina display, and iPad mini. 4G LTE offers customers with a theoretical downlink speed of 100Mb/s, however due to network congestion, users normally see anywhere from 20-60Mb/s on average when using 4G LTE.
The 29 new cities you can expect to find Verizon’s 4G LTE cellular coverage in starting today are:
- Flagstaff and Williams, Arizona
- Casa Grande, Arizona
- Prescott and Prescott Valley, Arizona
- Saddlebrook, Arizona
- Payson, Arizona
- Ruidoso, Arizona
- Mayer, Arizona
- Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek, Arizona
- Cottonwood, Arizona
- Lamar, Colorado
- LaJunta, Colorado
- Oskaloosa, Iowa
- Mason City and Charles City, Iowa
- Marshalltown, Iowa
- Hastings, Nebraska
- Kearney, Nebraska
- McCook, Nebraska
- Farmington, New Mexico
- Gallup, New Mexico
- Prewitt, New Mexico
- Klamath Falls, Oregon
- Roseburg, Oregon
- Sutherlin, Oregon
- Price, Utah
- Richfield, Utah
- Clarksburg, West Virginia
- Kennewick, Washington
- Pasco, Washington
- Richland, Washington
- Port Angeles, Washington
- Sequim, Washington
- Port Townsend, Washington
Unlike AT&T’s iPhone 5 users, Verizon iPhone 5 users that move out of range of Verizon’s 4G LTE cellular coverage will not be able to drop down to 4G HSPA+. Instead, users will drop down to 3G. This is one of the major pitfalls to Verizon, however their massive 4G LTE coverage map helps to make up for this.
Has Verizon's 4G LTE cellular coverage hit your area yet?

Verizon LTE is all over Washington but I still prefer AT&T only because Verizon asking a $450 deposit and AT&T don't ask for any."You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not"
