• Verizon Lights Up its XLTE Network in 6 More U.S. Markets Today



    On Tuesday, Verizon announced that it has flipped the switch to the on position for its newer-generation XLTE cellular network for six new United States markets. Now, because of the benefits of XLTE, these six cities will get to enjoy double the bandwidth because of the improvements to data flow on XLTE when compared to basic LTE.

    Today, July 28, Verizon announced XLTE is now available in six additional markets, bringing double the 4G LTE bandwidth and greater peak speeds in more than 400 markets coast to coast.

    That means that 4 out of 5 Verizon Wireless 4G LTE markets, large and small, from New York to San Diego, from Chicago to Miami and beyond, are powered by Verizon Wireless XLTE. If data were cars, it would be like doubling the number of lanes on a freeway from 10 to 20 - XLTE allows data to move faster.
    For Verizon customers in the following locations, data is about to get a lot faster and more reliable:

    • Carlsbad-Artesia, NM
    • Coos Bay-North Bend, OR
    • Corbin, KY
    • Jackson, MS
    • Selma, AL
    • Stevens Point-Marshfield, WI


    Only devices compatible with XLTE will be able to take advantage of the improved speed and bandwidth. All of the latest iPhones, including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, are compatible with the network, as well as the cellular-enabled iPad Air and iPad Air 2.

      Probably because bandwidth is being crushed under the weight of all the ads and tracking software stuffed into every 'free' website and app nowadays.

      An 8kb paragraph of information can steal 8mb+ of your data in order to render all the ads and unnecessary junk in the background.
