Whenever you place 4G and expansion in the same sentence, I get excited. With that said, my excitement is joined this morning with Verizon customers in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Beginning May 19th, customers in the Philadelphia metropolitan area will experience the 4G LTE speed that’s being offered from Verizon Wireless. Of course you will have to have a 4G LTE capable device to have that experience.
The press release states that “The expansion will improve coverage in New Jersey to the northwestern sections of Gloucester, Camden and Burlington Counties including the towns of Woodbury Heights, Blackwood, Runnemede, Voorhees, Moorestown, Cinnaminson, Mount Laurel and Delran. In Bucks County, Pennsylvania, 4G LTE coverage will be expanded to include the areas surrounding Newtown, Richboro and Buckingham.”
As a reminder, Verizon Wireless listed several devices that were capable of 4G LTE on their network – the DROID Charge by Samsung, the HTC Thunderbolt, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi 4510L and the Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot SCH-LC11, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE USB Modem 551L, the LG VL600 4G LTE modem, and the Pantech’s UML290 USB modem.
