“Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Network Upgrades to XLTE in Fort Wayne”

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): If you have Verizon Wireless, you might notice your phone going a little bit quicker. The network has expanded its XLTE technology Thursday in Fort Wayne, which company officials say boosts 4G LTE network capacity and enhances high-speed services. Officials say the technology is effective in enhancing wireless network performance in areas with a concentrated group of high-data demand customers, like rush hour traffic, concerts, sports stadiums, and other large events, like the upcoming Three Rivers Festival. In a release sent by Verizon, officials say XLTE uses Verizon’s AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) spectrum, which lets Verizon “provide increased capacity – at a minimum, doubling the capacity – over its 4G LTE network,” which they say means more customers in high-traffic locations can access the company’s technology at the same time during times of peak usage.

Other markets in Indiana with XLTE include Anderson, Bedford, Bloomington, Columbus, Elkhart, Evansville, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, Logansport, Marion, Mishawaka, Richmond, South Bend, Terre Haute, Vincennes and Washington.
