Verizon Announces XLTE Wireless Network, Offers Faster Peak Speeds And Double The 4G LTE Bandwidth

Verizon network in the US has today announced the new XLTE wireless network that offers high-speed data experience available on any wireless network in the United States. Verizon takes advantage of AWS spectrum for offering faster peak speeds and double the 4G LTE bandwidth.

What is XLTE and how does it work?

XLTE delivers faster peak data speeds and a minimum of double the bandwidth to 4G LTE customers in high traffic areas in markets nationwide where AWS spectrum has been activated.

While XLTE network enhancements are invisible to the customer, the mobile experience is not. XLTE Ready devices automatically access both 700 MHz spectrum and the AWS spectrum in XLTE cities. Customers with 4G LTE devices operating solely on the 700 MHz spectrum in XLTE markets also benefit from the extra capacity created by XLTE Ready device traffic moving to the AWS spectrum.

Latest Windows Phone devices such as Lumia Icon, Samsung Ativ SE support this XLTE network.
