Verizon Widens the 4G LTE Coverage Gap Again Tomorrow

Verizon will be expanding its 4G LTE network again tomorrow, an expansion that will bring its total amount of 4G LTE markets in the United States up to 337.

The carrier has announced that it will be expanding its 4G LTE network to 33 new cities tomorrow, bolstering its high-speed data network that is already miles ahead of the competition in terms of coverage.

AT&T, Verizon’s closest 4G LTE rival, current boasts 47 4G LTE markets in the U.S. while Sprint, which just launched its 4G LTE network in July 15th, only has a mere 15 markets in the U.S.
