Sprint wasn’t the only CDMA carrier keen on launching some new 4G LTE cities today. Verizon decided to launch a few of its own, with five new cities said to be receiving 4G LTE today. Those cities include El Centro, CA; Fort Dodge, IA; East Liverpool, OH; and Middlesboro/Harlan and Paducah, KY.
That brings Verizon’s market total up to 491, covering a whopping 287 million people in America (that’s awfully close to covering pretty much every last 313 million citizens there are). Verizon has been on an absolute tear since its 4G LTE network launched in 2010, and even as the carrier runs out of room for new market launches it continues to expand and upgrade networks for those who already have coverage. If you have a 4G phone and live in one of the aforementioned cities be sure to give the network a try and see just how fast it can be.
