Verizon Lights Up 22 New Cities With 4G LTE Coverage

Get ready, Verizon subscribers. You may have reason to upgrade to a brand new LTE-capable device — like the freshly announced Motorola Droid RAZR — now that Verizon has extended its 4G LTE coverage to 22 new cities.

The LTE extension into these 22 new cities will bring Verizon’s 4G coverage to a total of 165 cities today, with 13 more areas lighting up on November 17.

New cities getting the LTE love today include:

Birmingham, AL; Modesto and Stockton, CA; Bloomington, Elkhart, Evansville, South Bend, and Terre Haute, IN; Sioux City, IA; Hagerstown, MD; Tupelo, MS; Albuquerque and Sante Fe, NM; Buffalo, NY; Asheville, NC; Bartlesville, OK; Jackson and Martin, TN; Greater Hampton Roads and Richmond, VA; and Green Bay, WI.

Verizon also extended its existing 4G LTE coverage in Los Angeles, San Diego, Washington D.C. and Erie, PA. With today’s roll out and another one scheduled for November 17, Verizon’s 4G LTE network will cover a total of 178 cities in just under a month. By then, Verizon said it would offer at least 13 LTE-capable devices to customers.
