Verizon Wireless Enhances 4G LTE Network Coverage In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Verizon Wireles s recently activated new 4G LTE coverage in Lancaster County, further expanding coverage on the high-speed wireless data network the company launched earlier this year.   

Now, Verizon Wireless customers in the Lancaster, Paradise and Quarryville areas can 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.    Coverage was also expanded around Spring Garden Hospital and York Industrial.  

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 Mario Turco, Philadelphia Tri-State Region President for Verizon Wireless. "People everywhere are increasingly relying on their tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained.  Our investment here in the Philadelphia Tri-State region 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 $1.8 billion in the Philadelphia Tri-State region network since 2000, including $200 million in 2011 alone, to increase coverage and capacity on behalf of customers.

Currently, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is available in 417 markets across the United States.    The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers more than 70 percent of the Philadelphia region, including Greater Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley, Harrisburg, Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre and large portions of southern New Jersey and Delaware.

When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless' 3G network, where available, 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.
