When you choose a mobile carrier, one of the main aspects of that mobile carrier which you would definitely look out for would be the area of coverage. Well, we are pleased to say that as Verizon celebrates the third birthday of its 4G LTE network, and in order to commemorate the occasion, it has given the 4G LTE service a boost via Advanced Wireless Services spectrum airwaves. Revealing this detail to GigaOM, Verizon claimed to have improved its LTE network in selected markets throughout the country, relying on the AWS spectrum which it picked up from a hash of cable companies last year so that it can boost the peak speeds as well as capacity of its network.
Verizon Chief Network Officer Nicola Palmer touted that many major cities that dot the east of the Mississippi River, including New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Boston, as well as cities in the western part of the country, such as San Francisco and Los Angeles, would have enjoyed the boost in 4G LTE speeds. For those of you out there who happen to live in the mentioned areas, did you notice anything different about it, or has things remained pretty much the same? The iPhone 5s and 5c, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Motorola Droid Mini, Ultra and Maxx are some of the devices which are capable of taking advantage of this AWS network.
