Verizon Wireless Enhances 4G LTE Network Coverage in Hudson Valley Area
Verizon Wireless recently activated new 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution, latest standard in the mobile network technology) coverage in Dover Plains, Hudson, New Paltz, and Saugerties, furthermore expanding coverage on the high-speed wireless data network the company launched locally in December, 2011.
4G LTE lets Verizon Wireless clients 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 clients on 3G networks.
In real-world, fully-loaded network environments, Verizon Wireless clients 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 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 Gene Fassett, executive director of Network for Verizon Wireless in Upstate New York. "People everywhere are increasingly relying on their tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained. Our investment here in Upstate New York and across the country has kept us ahead of this consumer trend and underscores our belief that 4G LTE delivers the best value to clients by maximizing the performance of their wireless devices."
Verizon Wireless has invested more than $1.4 billion on its Upstate New York network since 2000, including more than $158 million in 2011, to increase coverage and capacity on behalf of its clients.
The company's 4G LTE network is currently available to two-thirds of the U.S. population in more than 300 markets nationwide.
When clients travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless' 3G network, where available, enabling clients to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless' 3G network is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and allows clients 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.
