Verizon Wireless Expands 4G LTE Coverage In Southwest Virginia

LAUREL, Md., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless has activated a new cluster of fourth generation (4G) Long Term Evolution (LTE) network cell sites in four counties in southwest Virginia –Appomattox, Campbell, Halifax and Pittsylvania.  This new cluster of 4G LTE sites extend the company's network footprint on Route 460 East of Lynchburg into Appomattox County and provides coverage along Routes 501 North and South through Campbell and Halifax Counties, and along Route 40 east and west towards Pittsylvania County.

Verizon Wireless customers in the following areas are now able to 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:
  • Route 460 from Dinwiddie to Blackstone to Crewe
  • Route 49 from Victoria and Chase City
  • Along I-85 from McKinney through South Hill to the North Carolina state line
  • Route 58 from Emporia to Clarksville.

"4G LTE is changing the way customers interact with the world via next generation apps, devices and solutions," said Mike Maiorana, Regional President.  "By investing in mobile broadband, we're investing in local communities and economies where our customers live, work and travel."

Already the largest commercial 4G LTE network in the nation, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network is now available in more than 491 markets, reaching 287 million people and covering more than 95 percent of Verizon Wireless' 3G network footprint.  In 2013, the Verizon 4G LTE footprint will completely cover the area served today by the company's 3G network.
