POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y., Aug. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless recently activated new 4G LTE coverage on sites in Goshen and New Windsor, further expanding coverage on the high-speed wireless data network the company launched locally in November 2011.
4G LTE lets Verizon Wireless customers use their 4G LTE-enabled devices to surf the Web, post status updates and photos, share music, and download files at speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on 3G networks .
In real-world, fully-loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless customers will be able to use their 4G LTE smartphones, tablets, notebooks, laptop modems and mobile hotspots to experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
"We've always believed the best wireless devices deserve the best wireless network," said Gene Fassett, executive director of Network for Verizon Wireless in Upstate New York. "People everywhere are increasingly relying on their tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained. Our investment here in Upstate New York and across the country has kept us ahead of this consumer trend and underscores our belief that 4G LTE delivers the best value to customers by maximizing the performance of their wireless devices."Verizon Wireless customers can also take advantage of HomeFusion™ Broadband, a solution that leverages the power and speed of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network to deliver high-speed, in-home Internet access for residential broadband, particularly in areas where Internet options are limited or are not currently available. Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.4 billion on its Upstate New York network since 2000, including more than $158 million in 2011, to increase coverage and capacity on behalf of its customers. The company's 4G LTE network is currently available to more than 75 percent of the U.S. population in more than 370 markets nationwide.
