NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon announced today it has launched LTE Advanced technology to bring 50% faster peak wireless data speeds to more than 288 million people in 461 cities from coast to coast. Verizon LTE Advanced hits all the major cities, and covers loads of less-served places including highways, interstates, country roads and rural America. So customers don't need to stay in one place to get great high speed connections, they can use their mobile devices to actually be mobile and head to the places they work, vacation and want to go.

"Our customers just received a major network enhancement for no additional cost," said Tami Erwin, head of operations for Verizon's wireless unit. "Verizon LTE Advanced works like a turbocharger on an engine. Speed boosts kick in when you need it most, with big data use. That's when you get the big peak boost of Verizon LTE Advanced."

Verizon LTE Advanced uses software that combines multiple channels to speed mobile data over the network more quickly than ever before. The result is 50% faster peak speeds in cities nationwide for Verizon customers using one of the 39 LTE Advanced-capable phones and tablets already on Verizon's network - including top-selling Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 smartphones, Moto Droids and Apple iPhones. As new devices from Apple, Samsung, LG and other manufacturers are introduced, they will be LTE Advanced-capable right out of the box.

Customers with a phone or tablet with LTE Advanced capabilities and the most recent software will benefit from these enhancements without effort or additional costs. There are no extra plan costs, no settings to change, no indicators to check.

How it works.

Verizon LTE Advanced uses software to combine two or three bandwidth channels into one larger channel to send data sessions over the most efficient route to completion. This technology is called carrier aggregation and uses a combination of 700 MHz, AWS, and PCS spectrum.

"Verizon LTE Advanced means your data session moves more quickly over the best network," said Nicki Palmer, Verizon's chief wireless network engineer. "Imagine a road with multiple lanes in which, once you pick a lane, that's the lane you drive in. That describes our award-winning 4G LTE network. Continuing the metaphor, Verizon LTE Advanced allows cars to change lanes efficiently and flawlessly, balancing the flow of traffic and getting drivers to their destinations more efficiently. That means blindingly fast data transmissions when you need it most."

LTE Advanced currently uses a combination of two- and three-carrier aggregation. Customers will continue to enjoy typical download speeds of 5 - 12 Mbps, but two-channel carrier aggregation has shown peak download speeds of up to 225 Mbps, far exceeding the current speeds being experienced by wireless data networks nationwide. While the speeds of two channel carrier aggregation provide a leap forward, three-channel carrier aggregation provides even greater efficiency. Verizon engineers deploying three-channel carrier aggregation have experienced speeds greater than 300 Mbps.

In 2003, Verizon was the first wireless company to launch 3G, bringing it from coast to coast by 2005. In 2010, customers across the country were first to experience the newest mobile technology - 4G LTE. "With Verizon LTE Advanced, we're bringing the next generation of wireless technology to the market, coast to coast," said Palmer. "We're already in 461 markets and we're already underway deploying three channel carrier aggregation."

Verizon provides the best customer experience, built on the nation's most award-winning network. Today's announcement of Verizon LTE Advanced technology in 461 cities on the Verizon network coast to coast, increasing peak speeds by up to 50% at no additional cost, adds even greater value. Verizon's network is the most award-winning network for its speed, consistently reliable performance, and hundreds of thousands of square miles more 4G LTE coverage than the next-closest competitor.
