Verizon Wireless has launched its 4G Long Term Evolution network in Greenville, directly affecting its customers in Washington and surrounding areas.

Customers with 4G LTE devices will be able wirelessly stream video, share music and photos, download files and surf the Web at speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon’s 3G network.

The following areas will now have access to Verizon’s high speed wireless network: Greenville, Washington, Jamesville, Robersonville and Williamston.

“Introducing our 4G LTE network to Greenville will enable residents, small businesses and local government to take advantage of the speed and connectivity offered by 4G LTE technology,” said Jerry Fountain, Verizon Wireless president for the Carolinas and Tennessee region. “We will continue pushing the boundaries with our 4G LTE network in 2012 to bring our customers the products and services for which our network is known.”

In real-world, fully loaded network environments, 4G LTE customers should experience average data rates of five to 12 megabits per second on the downlink and two to five Mbps on the uplink. When customers travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, 4G LTE devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless’ 3G network, enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast.
