- Addition of new cell sites shows Verizon’s commitment to the ongoing expansion of the 4G LTE network within the New York Metro region
Verizon Wireless, provider of the fastest and most advanced 4G LTE network in America, has expanded its network coverage in the Northern New Jersey area by activating a cluster of 4G LTE cell sites across Essex, Morris and Somerville Counties. The network launches today and will be available to customers in the following cities and towns:

- Madison, New Jersey
- Morristown, New Jersey
- Troy Hills, New Jersey
“Verizon Wireless was the first wireless company to broadly deploy the game-changing 4G LTE network, and we’re committed to building it out to the same performance and reliability for which our 3G network has long been recognized,” said Pat Devlin, president of Verizon Wireless New York Metro Region. “The majority of our customers in the Northern New Jersey area now have access to the nation’s most advanced 4G LTE network and we’re excited to offer those faster speeds and the brand new line of devices to our customers in Essex, Morris and Somerville Counties. The new cell towers are placed in a key area where local businesses and consumers alike will benefit the most from our wireless services.”
Residents of Northern New Jersey will now be able to enjoy the new Verizon Wireless 4G LTE devices, including the recently launched Revolution™ by LG, DROID Charge by Samsung, Thunderbolt by HTC and the 4G LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. In addition, customers will be able to connect to the nation’s fastest and most advanced network on-the-go with the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE USB Modem 551L, USB modems from LG and Pantech, as well as 4G LTE Mobile Hotspots by Novatel and Samsung. All 4G LTE devices are “backward compatible,” so they will default to 3G service when 4G LTE is not available. The Verizon Wireless 3G network is available coast to coast and is the most reliable in the country.
Verizon Wireless is focused on a disciplined deployment approach that continues year after year. The company’s 700 MHz spectrum provides unique advantages with 4G LTE, including a contiguous, nationwide network license. With this latest progression of wireless technology, the company has measured average data rates to be 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink. These speeds will allow for smooth mobile video-conferencing, multiple simultaneous video streams, speedy transfer of large files, downloading and running of powerful programs, and numerous other applications that help improve productivity on the go.
