Verizon Wireless Introduces High-Speed 4G LTE Network In Pueblo, Colorado

PUEBLO, CO — Verizon Wireless customers in Pueblo will be able to experience the blazingly fast speeds and capabilities of America’s largest 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network when the service launches here on Thursday, Sept. 20. The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers more than 75 percent of the U.S. population and has more coverage than all other U.S. wireless providers combined. The introduction of 4G LTE in Pueblo moves Verizon Wireless one step closer to its goal of covering 400 markets across the United States with its 4G LTE network by the end of 2012.

On Thursday, Sept. 20, customers who live in or visit areas in Pueblo north along I-25 to Pinon Road, south to Burnt Mill Road, west along US-50 to Pueblo Blvd., and east to Baxter Road will have access to the nation’s fastest 4G network. In addition to introducing its 4G LTE network in Pueblo, Verizon Wireless is also expanding and introducing the network in Greeley, Longmont and Aspen/Snowmass in Colorado on Sept. 20.

“Our 4G LTE network enables customers across the country to stay in touch like never before – uploading, downloading and connecting online with speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G,” said Chris Lewter, regional president for Verizon Wireless. “We are continuing to expand and enhance our 4G LTE network across the country to provide our customers with the best wireless experience possible and enable them to take advantage of the innovations that are being brought to market through 4G LTE technology.”

4G LTE Devices, Solutions and Plans

Customers in Pueblo can also take advantage of HomeFusion℠ Broadband, which leverages the power and speed of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network to deliver high-speed, in-home Internet access, particularly in areas where Internet options are limited or unavailable.

Verizon Wireless offers the largest selection of 4G LTE devices, ranging from tablets and mobile hotspots to the latest smartphones and more, including the Samsung Galaxy S® III and the DROID INCREDIBLE 4G LTE by HTC. Details can be found at www.verizonwireless.com/4GLTE. Information on plans and pricing for consumers and businesses is available at www.verizonwireless.com/plans.

For customers with new 4G LTE-enabled devices or looking to purchase 4G LTE-enabled devices, Verizon Wireless offers in-store and online Wireless Workshops that provide customers with the information they need to maximize their wireless experiences on smartphones and tablets. For more information, visit a local Verizon Wireless Communications Store or www.verizonwireless.com/workshops.

4G LTE Coverage and Speed

In real-world, fully loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless 4G LTE customers should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.

When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless’ 3G network, enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless’ 3G network is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and allows customers in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to take advantage of 4G LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in their area, or when they travel to areas already covered by 4G LTE.

  1. That’s great and everything, but i still want my Jelly bean update

    1. Hope you read today’s news cuz… It’s finally been released! :D

  2. Let’s see how quickly the network buckles under the iPhone 5.

    1. You sir read my mind. Come on Verizon…bolster your network for the hoards of iphone sheep.

      1. Or just limit their data to 512MB max per month… hehehe >X)

  3. It’s gonna be hard for it to buckle when the iClowns who buy one won’t even be able to do Voice/Data @ the same time like we already do Lulzmao!!

  4. Pocatello, Idaho also got LTE, finally!

  5. Blazing fast is such a relative term. I live in a small area that is covered in LTE. I have done speed tests and in some places it wasnt even hitting 2Mbs. Granted at my house I usually get 23-26. Ive seen people post up like 50s and 60s. Which leads me to believe if everyone in my area had LTE devices that the speed will turn even crappier.

    1. 5 TO 12 MBPS would not be considered “crappy” imo. That’s plenty fast enough to watch/listen to streaming music & video without buffering. Instantly download graphic intense webpages, and perform any function online seamlessly. The ONLY time you’ll notice a difference from 40mbps to 15, would be if you’re downloading a huge file like a movie. In which case it may take you an extra 15-20 seconds. Big deal!!

  6. Wow moultrie and tifton ga those little PO dunk towns lol

  7. I live in a city that has an extremely fast 4G signal, but as soon as I pull into my neighborhood (in the suburbs too), it drops down to 2 bars of 3G. =(

  8. Never heard of Bremerton or Silverdale Colorado. I’m pretty sure those are in Washington State.

    1. No they are here, old mining towns. This new is just a bit late, I’ve been surfin’ the 4Gs in Pueblo for about 3 weeks now. Finally, my Bionic is worth having.

  9. Still no LTE where I live in Morris County, NJ. :(

  10. Until they get rid of the 2GB data cap there is no way I’m “upgrading” to 4G.
