Verizon’s 4G LTE Network Continues Its Rapid Expansion

AT&T and Sprint have quite a bit of work to do if either hopes to catch up to the footprint of Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

According to Droid-Life, Verizon has either introduced, expanded or enhanced its 4G LTE network in 44 markets around the United States.

As it stands, Verizon’s 4G LTE network is far and away bigger than its closest competitor in AT&T, boasting over 200 markets around the U.S. covering more than 200 million Americans.

To compare, AT&T has just over 30 markets available to consumers while Sprint will be launching its 4G LTE network later on this month in six markets.

The carrier’s 4G LTE network offers extremely fast data speeds, speeds that can reach up to 10 times faster than typical 3G. In the video below, the 4G LTE enabled Droid Bionic burns the 3G enabled iPhone 4S.

Verizon plans to have its entire 4G LTE network rolled out by the end of 2013.
