Gigaom is reporting this morning that Verizon Wireless has begun rolling out its faster more powerful LTE 4G network without much fanfare. Verizon claims faster LTE “peak” speeds up to 80Mbps and a capacity boost of 150%.
Today on the third anniversary of its initial 4G network launch, Verizon Wireless revealed to Gigaom that it has now set the new network beast loose in dozens of major markets across the country.
The new improvements to Verizon’s network can support theoretical speeds for 100 Mbps to 150 Mbps. That of course will not be real world speeds and even 80Mbps will become less as more subscribers are added. Even so, this upgrade does sound very significant and it comes at a good time as Verizon had earlier admitted that they were having issues keeping up with demand in larger cities.
