Verizon Wireless information

Verizon Wireless announces that it has spent more than $34 million improving network services in northern Ohio. In the past three years, Verizon has added nearly 70 sites — all equipped with 4G LTE.  To date, the company has added XLTE technology to nearly 70 percent of the sites in this region, providing faster peak speeds and greater capacity.
Approximately 80 percent of the populations are covered by Verizon Wireless XLTE network, including Van Wert County.

Verizon Wireless has the nation’s largest 4G LTE network. Launched in December 2010, Verizon’s 4G LTE network is available in more than 500 markets to more than 98 percent of the population and covers more than 303 million people in the U.S., including those in areas served by the company’s LTE in Rural America partners.

XLTE, launched in 2014, is now available to more than 98 percent of the U.S. population and is helping double the bandwidth of the company’s 4G LTE network, delivering faster peak data speeds to XLTE-ready devices. In fact, more customers than ever in Northern Ohio are experiencing the speed and capabilities offered through the innovative products and solutions available on Verizon’s 4G LTE and XLTE network.
