Verizon Wireless recently offered some details in terms of where their 4G LTE stands. For example, they noted that the network now covers 473 markets which means it is available for a potential 273.5 million people. They also mentioned that the 4G LTE network is now available for "close to 89 percent" of the US footprint.

Verizon Wireless 4G LTE coverage in 2012. We have seen reports about the roll-out and the progress that was being made. It was back in early November when they announced that they expected to have the 4G LTE network roll-out completed by the middle of 2013. Anyway, flash forward back to the present day and Verizon has come forward with details on the 2013 4G LTE roadmap.
AT&T has announced the latest expansion to their 4G LTE network. And while they have yet to outpace Verizon, they are making nice progress and currently have more than 130 markets covered across the country. Of course, AT&T blurs the line of 4G here and tout themselves as having the "nation’s largest 4G network."
AT&T's aggressive 4G LTE roll out lately, but today it's Verizon's turn. The nation's largest carrier announced today that it has launched 4G LTE service in a whopping 29 markets, bringing the total number of LTE markets up to an absurd 470. At last check, AT&T had just under 200 markets where LTE service was up and running, so Verizon has quite a large lead on the other carriers in the US.
AT&T go! It wasn't very long ago we last told you about AT&T's continued 4G LTE expansion, and now the carrier has given us more to report about today. AT&T has turned on 4G LTE service in five new markets across the US while expanding service in others, so it's going to be a good day for a lot of people as far as mobile data speeds are concerned.
ZTE today revealed its first dual-mode LTE smartphone in Hong Kong, the ZTE Grand Era LTE. This phone is billed to be part of the launch of China Mobile Hong Kong's first commercial converged TD-LTE / LTE FDD network, so it should end up being a pretty big deal over there. While dual-LTE is undoubtedly going to be the star of this show, there are some pretty solid specs to boost that functionality up.
Verizon lately. Between launching multiple new 4G LTE devices, including the Galaxy Camera, to updating markets across the US with 4G LTE speeds. Last week we reported many new cities in the northwest were set to receive 4G LTE, but today Verizon has announced another 16 cities to add to their ever growing list.
Samsung Galaxy Camera. There is a constant influx of tablets and phones hitting the market all the time, but a full-featured camera with Android installed; that's something you don't see everyday. Verizon made the release date of the Galaxy Camera known a couple of days ago, and now the device is available from the carrier.
4G LTE expansion day for two of the nation's biggest carriers. Hot on the heels of Verizon's own 4G LTE expansion, AT&T has announced that it's LTE network is now up and running in six new markets. On top of that, it has expanded its network in two existing markets, so a fair number of AT&T customers should be experiencing faster data speeds today.
Verizon celebrated the 2-year anniversary of their 4G LTE, but they aren't slowing down anytime soon. We know they've been updating at a very rapid pace and today have learned multiple Northwest markets will be getting lit up with 4G LTE. Verizon's expects their entire LTE rollout to be complete in 2013, and they're well on their way.
