Verizon XLTE headed to more than 50 new locations today, now available in 300+ markets

Verizon’s XLTE (LTE-Advanced) network upgrades are moving faster than ever since the initial launch with the wireless carrier announcing that more than 50 new markets have been added to the list today. That brings the full roster to more than 300 cities with XLTE (you can find the full list here).

XLTE delivers up to double the bandwidth of Verizon’s previous deployment, giving you a faster data connection and less congestion in crowded areas. Verizon already has a pretty sizable list of devices that are capable of receiving XLTE speeds, including recent heavy hitters such as the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Even older devices such as the DROID line, the LG G2 and many other flagships from last year can enjoy the increased speeds.

Verizon proved with their initial 4G LTE rollout that they had the innate ability to reach a wide range of people in an extremely short amount of time, and they’re proving they can do it all over again with these latest upgrades coming in at breakneck pace. Let your eyes wander below for the full list of the newest cities added to the mix in case you’re curious. Fire your XLTE-capable device up and give it a try if you happen to be in an area drenched in the new coverage.

    Marietta, OH, not Mareta.

  • James Barcus

    Since I’m from Marietta, OH.. Maybe this Mareta is close by? Sounds like a nice town..

  • hemipw54

    Okay who asked for this? Every time VZW says “you asked for this” I wonder just who “you” really is. I mean I didn’t ask for less service at a higher rate and lower allotted internet limit usage for a higher price. Who ever it is asking for this STOP!!!!!!!!!

    • malcmilli

      i think because their LTE speeds have been slowing down in some cities. I know in NY my co worker/friends/mom’s work phone seemed to only average about 5-9 mbps when I tested them. This is significantly slower than the 25-50 people used to get, or get in other cities.

  • Jeffrey Tarman

    YEAH!! Hit that data cap even faster!! T-Mobile is looking better all the time

    I grew up in Johnstown, PA and I can’t see why they would put there. I live near Burlington, NC and can’t see why they would put there either. I wonder who “you” really is too

    • malcmilli

      yeah you’ll hit your cap “faster” only because you wont have to wait for stuff to buffer. 2gb of data is 2gb no matter how slow or quickly it comes.

      • Canon User

        Uh, you understand what the word ‘faster’ means, right?

        • malcmilli

          i do, but its really a non issue. But the assertion that faster speeds are somehow limited or less valuable in any way due to a data cap is silly.

      • UMA_Fan

        The point is Tmobile has unlimited LTE access. Verizon doesn’t.

        • malcmilli

          I know this,I am on Tmobile, but having faster data speeds isnt any less useful whether you have a data cap or if you are unlimited.

  • Jeff Saul

    Because there is such a high demand for bandwidth in Montana…. Seriously 5 “cities” there? Hey VZW, HOW ABOUT NJ?

    • JayToTheRock

      are you in North?
      cause south would be covered by Philadelphia :)

    • Andrew torres

      Remember that call the US Govmnt made for the Telco’s and wireless industry to start figuring ways to get Highspeed access to many americans in far off rural areas? Montana and all those far off places with barely any landline structure benefit from VZW’s home fusion services. they are truly bringing the broadband speeds but, i can only imagine how expensive it gets.

  • Andrew Corvin

    Yay, my town’s on the list!

  • danbob999

    XLTE is a marketing term for plain old LTE. It is not LTE-A.

  • UMA_Fan

    XLTE? Marketing BS.

  • jfelts

    Verizon computers are down nationwide and have been over 24 hours….

    My
    Uncle Riley got an almost new red GMC Canyon just by some parttime working
    online with a laptop. visit their website F­i­s­c­a­l­p­o­s­t­.­C­O­M­

    • Pkmmte

      But does your Uncle Riley get XLTE?

  • godrilla

    I can’t wait until tmobile gets this to the north east with volte.

  • AlanKy

    XLTE is NOT LTE Advanced. It’s just their implementation of new spectrum to increase bandwidth. There’s a huge difference between the two. This article needs to make the correction so as to not mislead people.

  • William Grantmyre Jr.

    Is this really LTE Advanced? I thought it was just new spectrum.

  • Pkmmte

    Just like others have pointed out, XLTE is not LTE-Advanced.

  • dhinged

    I don’t have a problem with speed on my old Droid Razr Maxx with 4G LTE, I have an issue with battery life on 4G compared to 3G. It’s a MASSIVE difference. Now I’m thinking XLTE will be even worse.
