Verizon Wireless Expands its XLTE Technology in Dalton, Georgia
Jul 22 14
Verizon Wireless has expanded its newest technology -- known as XLTE -- in more markets including Dalton, Georgia to boost 4G LTE network capacity and enhance high-speed services for customers. More than 350 of Verizon's 4G LTE 500-plus markets have been enhanced with XLTE, with more scheduled to be completed by the end of the year. XLTE utilizes Verizon's AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) spectrum, which allows Verizon to deliver significantly increased capacity -- at a minimum, doubling the capacity -- over its high-speed 4G LTE network. This means more customers in high-traffic locations can access the company's most advanced technology at the same time to send photos, download videos, surf the Internet and use other popular applications on their smartphones, tablets and other devices during times of peak usage. XLTE technology is particularly effective in enhancing wireless network performance in settings with a concentrated group of high-data demand customers, such as densely-populated areas, rush hour commutes, concert venues, sports arenas/stadiums and other large event locations. XLTE deployment is a major part of the company's ongoing commitment to enhance network reliability and superiority. The company has invested more than $2.25 billion since 2000 to build and enhance its Georgia wireless network.
