Feb 12 15
Verizon Wireless announced that it enhanced its network across multiple markets in Central Texas in 2014. It also implemented its newest technology, XLTE, in several communities. Reportedly, XLTE was activated by Verizon in 16 markets, including Frisco, Allen, Grapevine, Austin, New Braunfels, Midland, Odessa, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Shreveport, Amarillo, Abilene, Waco, Texarkana, Wichita Falls, Longview, Tyler and Sherman. These activations boost 4G LTE network capacity and enhance high-speed services for new and existing customers in the region. Also, new LTE sites were activated in major cities, such as Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and San Antonio. The expanded network capacity in suburbs surrounding major cities, such as Allen, Frisco and Fairview will support the rapid growth in population and new business there, as well as support high-traffic locations such as malls, sports arenas and concert venues. Specifically in Allen, the Verizon XLTE network provides incremental support for present and future customers in the newly developed residential areas west of Allen near Highway 121. In addition, the Central Texas Network team enhanced cell sites and coverage in 2014 during large-scale, national events, such as the Formula One Grand Prix race in Austin, IndyCar racing at Texas Motor Speedway in Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin's annual music, film and interactive media conference.
