This week, mobile phone carrier Verizon Wireless has announced a series of enhancements brought to its network in the New York Area.
Thus, the carrier has announced that it has activated new 4G LTE sites in Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga Springs, Altamont, Berne, Brunswick, Clifton Park, Coeymans, Cohoes, Delanson, Delmar, Galway, Knox and Westerlo, to deliver better network speeds to users in New York's capital district.
But this is only one part of the network improvement that the carrier has done in the area. Four sites have been activated in Buffalo too, as well as sites in Niagara Falls, Amherst, Brant, North Collins and in Dunkirk.
Additionally, the operator
announced new 4G LTE coverage on three sites in Utica and new sites in New Hartford and Whitesboro, as well as expanded coverage in Syracuse, Cicero, Clay, Cortland and Sullivan.
Through its 4G LTE network, Verizon is aiming at providing users with the ability to surf the web, access social networking websites, share content and do more at speeds that are up to ten times faster than those available on 3G networks.
Whether it comes to 4G LTE smartphones, tablets, notebooks, laptop modems or mobile hotspots, all users will be able to enjoy data speeds of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink, even in fully-loaded network environments, the wireless carrier notes.
“We’ve always believed the best wireless devices deserve the best wireless network,” said Gene Fassett, executive director of network for Verizon Wireless in Upstate New York.
“People everywhere are increasingly relying on their tablets, smartphones and apps to stay organized, connected and entertained. Our investment here in Upstate New York and across the country has kept us ahead of this consumer trend and underscores our belief that 4G LTE
delivers the best value to customers by maximizing the performance of their wireless devices.”
When outside the 4G LTE coverage area, devices will automatically connect to the wireless carrier’s 3G network, for a continuous experience.
