The Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be available in more than 400 markets across the U.S. on Oct. 18.
With an objective of covering 400 markets by the end of this year, Verizon says it will surpass its target next week when its total reaches 417.
Verizon's 4G LTE coverage in the U.S. will be accessible to more than 245 million people with this new expansion.
Nicola Palmer, chief technical officer of Verizon Wireless, said, "With 4G LTE technology so widespread and still growing, our customers can travel throughout the United States with a consistently outstanding 4G LTE experience enhanced by a growing number of LTE-enabled products and services."
Among the Big Four, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T all offer LTE networks to their customers, but Verizon got out of the gate nearly two years ago and has a big lead on its competitors in this area.
