If you’ve been screaming into the void about how congestion has gotten the better of Verizon’s network, breathe a sigh of relief. I can confirm what you’re about to read is true – but don’t take my word for it – run a speed test from INSIDE your concrete and steel office and you’ll understand!
Verizon’s XLTE is official and it is bringing double the bandwidth to dozens of cities across the United Sates. The enhanced-LTE service uses Verizon’s AWS spectrum to double the speeds available more than two-dozen devices available on Big Red’s network, including the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, iPhone 5s, Samsung ATIV SE, and BlackBerry Q10. XLTE isn’t a “5G”, so much as an enhanced LTE.
Said Verizon CMO Ken Dixon: “We continue to offer the very best network, bar none. Now, XLTE provides an even greater advantage to customers by doubling the 4G LTE bandwidth and providing faster peak speeds in cities coast to coast.”
Customers with XLTE-compatible devices won’t have to do anything to make their phones compatible — the upgrade will be “invisible” to the customer, save for the faster speeds. Back on top? We’ll find out soon enough
