Verizon Wireless Expands Network In Northern Louisiana

Stocks in this article: VODVZ

DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon Wireless is dedicated to ongoing improvement of its wireless network, already the largest and most reliable 4G LTE network in Texas.  As part of that commitment, the company recently activated 74 additional 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) cell sites in Northern Louisiana from Shreveport to Monroe and surrounding Parishes. These site activations will enhance data coverage, which enables more consumer and business customers to use their wireless phones to send and receive emails, text messages and pictures; view high-quality videos; access the Internet; and download music, games and ringtones nearly 10 times faster than before – all while enjoying clearer reception and fewer dropped calls.

Key network improvements and expansion in Northern Louisiana include:

  • The new cell site in the Red River Parish, Northern Louisiana is located Southeast of Shreveport and will improve digital voice and broadband data service along US Highway 71 from Coushatta to Campti, LA.  

"After launching our 4G LTE in Shreveport in September 2011 and Monroe last August, we're excited to expand the network to surrounding cities and parishes," said Lee Maschmann, Central Texas director of network at Verizon Wireless.  "At Verizon, we strive to bring the fast speeds and superior reliability of our 4G LTE network to more customers in Northern Louisiana."

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers more than 95 percent of the U.S. population and is available in 500 markets across the United States with 29 in the Central Texas Region. The activations in these cities are a part of Verizon Wireless initiative to cover its 3G footprint with its 4G LTE network. Currently Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network covers 99 percent of its 3G footprint.
