Verizon’s Summer Forecast: Blazing With A High Of 4G LTE
Verizon continues to put other carriers to shame with their 4G LTE network. In one day, Verizon manages to blanket more markets than most carriers do in months. At the current rate of expansion, I’d say most other carriers are year’s behind, and according to Verizon’s current forecast, it’s going to get worse.
This summer, Verizon plans to bring 4G LTE to another 20+ markets across the U.S. No matter where you travel this summer, chances are you’ll be taking those blazing fast 4G LTE speeds with you. I’m not going to lie, I’m extremely happy knowing I have this kind of coverage (even though I certainly pay for it) and I’ll be taking full advantage of it while on the road later this month.
I hope you have some time to spare, because the list you’re about to read is pretty extensive. The following markets should be seeing 4G LTE by June 21st:
Gainesville along SR 20 to CR 234, Gainesville Regional Airport, Alachua, Haile Plantation, Kanapaha Park, Lake Kanapaha, Newnans Lake, Lamplighter, Prairie Creek, Paynes Prairie Preserve, Turkey Creek Forest, Flying Ten Airport, San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park, Dudley Farm Historic State Park, Santa Fe Springs Conservation Area, the University of Florida Agricultural Experimental Farm, and throughout the area west of Interstate 75 northeast of Archer and southeast of High Springs.
