Verizon Wireless announced Tuesday that its network boosting XLTE technology has been launched in Augusta.
More than half of Verizon’s 4G LTE 500-plus markets – including Atlanta, Athens and Columbus – have been enhanced with XLTE, with more scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
XLTE technology enhances network performance in areas with high-data demand customers, such as cities, highways with rush hour traffic, concert venues and sports stadiums.
“We have a long-standing commitment of making investments in our network, more than $170 million across Georgia in 2013 alone. With the doubling of bandwidth on our 4G LTE network, customers can now enjoy faster data service,” said Jonathan LeCompte, the president for the Georgia/Alabama Region of Verizon Wireless.
