WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Since first introducing 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) in Santa Clara County in December 2010, Verizon Wireless has expanded the nation's fastest 4G network and now reaches more than 40,000 college students at Santa Clara University and California State University, San Jose.

"As more classes begin integrating technology in the curriculum, students have a greater need to stay connected," said Russ Preite, region president for Verizon Wireless. "Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE technology helps students stay on top of their schoolwork and connected to friends."
Within Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE service area, Verizon customers with 4G LTE-enabled devices can stream video, share music and photos, surf the Web and download files at speeds up to 10 times faster than customers on 3G networks. For businesses utilizing the network, the increasing speed of broadband connectivity provides the most sophisticated wireless capabilities for economic advancement.In real-world, fully loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE customers in the coverage area should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits (Mbps) per second on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
