More Tennessee Rural Areas Covered By Verizon's 4G LTE Network

NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless has bolstered its 4G LTE data service in Tennessee's rural areas so more Tennessee residents have access to mobile broadband speeds 10 times faster than 3G. Verizon Wireless added 34 4G LTE-enabled cellular towers in Tennessee since January 2013, and 78,492 additional people are now covered by the service in cities and towns across the state, including expanded coverage along I-75 in Campbell County and expanded coverage in Lincoln County. Today, 94 percent of Tennessee residents are covered by Verizon's 4G LTE service.

"When Verizon started building out the 4G LTE network in Tennessee in late 2011, we made a commitment that we would include rural areas in our roll-out," said Jerry Fountain, president for Verizon Wireless's Carolinas/ Tennessee region. "Today, I am pleased to share that significant portions of two counties in the Volunteer State have access to the best wireless data speeds."

Verizon Wireless introduced the country to 4G LTE two and a half years ago, and since that time, has led the charge by covering 89 percent of the U.S. population with the high-speed data service. The commitment to strengthen Verizon's 4G LTE coverage in rural areas is part of Verizon's plan to cover 100 percent of its 3G footprint by mid 2013.

The 4G LTE network provides lightning fast download and upload speeds for video, documents and music, as well as the fastest Internet connections for mobile hotspots and wireless routers. Verizon Wireless was the first carrier to launch 4G LTE in December 2010. The company covers nearly 275 million people in the U.S. with 4G LTE—significantly more people than its competitors.
