Verizon Expands 4G LTE In 26 States
 
 

Verizon says that by the end of this Thursday, 19 new "markets" will be added to its already impressive slate of regions across the country with high-speed mobile Internet accessibility.

According to the official Verizon tally, that will bring the number of markets with its 4G service to 74, although that figure is sort of under-representing the amount of the country that's included, because each market can be made up of several cities.

For example, "New York, NY" is just one market but it also includes neighboring cities in upsate New York, western New York, Long Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

So by the end of the week, even though Verizon classifies the new additions as just 19 new markets, it actually includes more than half of the country, with new infrastructure encompassing 26 states as well as the District of Columbia.

Some of the major new cities include Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, but the total number of cities that will now be able to connect to Verizon 4G LTE service is several dozen.

Instead of running down the list of every single new city, here's a list of the states that are affected. Almost all of these already have Verizon 4G service enabled somewhere but with the latest enhancement, a greater swath of the state will be covered:

- Alabama
- Arizona
- California
- Connecticut
- Florida
- Georgia
- Idaho
- Illinois
- Indiana
- Louisiana
- Massachusetts
- Michigan
- Missouri
- Nevada
- New York
- North Carolina
- Ohio
- Oklahoma
- Pennsylvania
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- Kentucky
- Tennessee
- Texas
- Utah
- Washington
- Wisconsin

Verizon uses a 4G standard called LTE (Long Term Evolution) and has been heralded as the fasted 4G service provider in the country. Other mobile carriers that launched different versions of 4G connectivity are now switching to LTE.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
