Verizon boosts 4G LTE network
Verizon Wireless has expanded its newest technology – known as XLTE – to more Oklahoma locations to boost 4G LTE network capacity and enhance high-speed services for customers. More than half of Verizon’s 4G LTE 500-plus markets have been enhanced with XLTE, with more scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. XLTE utilizes Verizon’s AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) spectrum, which allows Verizon to deliver significantly increased capacity – at a minimum, doubling the capacity – over its high-speed 4G LTE network. This means more customers in high-traffic locations can simultaneously access the company’s most advanced technology on their smartphones, tablets and other devices during times of peak usage. “Oklahomans use Verizon’s 4G LTE network for a number of reasons – sharing photos and video, downloading large files, live video streaming to monitor their home or business, and much more,” said Kristi Crum, president of the South Central Region of Verizon Wireless. “We have a clear competitive advantage with XLTE and expect to stay well ahead of demand to deliver these 4G LTE services even better, faster and to even more customers.”
