In case any of you started to feel that your 4G LTE speeds were becoming too slow, Verizon today announced their new XLTE service for several markets to try to make LTE even better.
XLTE is more of a marketing term than an actual spec term as it is really AWS LTE Band 4 spectrum. In case you are like me and have no idea what that actually mean, this newly deployed spectrum will help Verizon’s LTE out specifically in high traffic areas. With XLTE, customers who are in areas where it is available will get an overall faster network in general and when the network is usually slowed down during peeks in the day when a lot of customers will be online.
So how can I jump onto this super charged XLTE network? All you have to do is be on Verizon’s plan and using a LTE equipped Verizon device. As this bandof network was theoretically already developed a long time ago, all of Verizon’s LTE equipped devices should automatically work on it whenever they are in the XLTE network.
