Verizon XLTE Cities

verizon xlte

Verizon has made its new AWS-backed XLTE network official, so I can imagine that you are curious if you live in a city that can take advantage. Chances are that you do because the list is massive, but to make sure, you will want to take a look at the official list below. According to Verizon, all of the cities below have active XLTE as of today.

As a reminder, XLTE is simply Verizon putting to use their AWS (Band 4) LTE spectrum in major cities to double the bandwidth of its LTE network. Users will also see faster peak data speeds, without having to do anything other than own an XLTE-ready device. Thankfully, almost all of Verizon’s recently announced phones can take advantage. Check the list here.¬†

    I live in Louisville Ky. My Verizon Download speed is 39.8 Mgb with 12.6 upload. Thanks Verizon. It has gone higher than this but never much lower since XLTE was turned on in May. Lovin it!

  • Jason Terry

    Doesn’t appear the switch has been flipped in Austin, TX. I have a Note 3 and am still on Band 13. When manually setting it to Band 4, I have no connection at all.

  • Wait. Only a few of Verizon’s newest, and priciest phones, take advantage of XLTE. If you have for instance a 2013 Motorola Droid, e.g, MAXX, HD MAXX, etc., you are out of luck unless you upgrade to a new phone. In any case, faster speeds on the network can equate to higher data usage. For instance, Verizon basically charges $10 per Gb per month. If you have a 4 Gb package, that will cost you $40/month. If you want to take advantage of the higher speeds to watch videos or streaming video of sports events, be prepared to bump your data package up to accommodate that change.

  • BOB Dudek

    ALL those backwater towns and in the most populace pile of dirt in the USA- > New Jersey.. and we got Atlantic City-ONLY..?

  • TinkFu

    Droid Maxx in SLC: Still getting the same speeds that I have been all year (11-30Mbps with full signal)!??

  • Jared Krinsky

    I was hoping that I was close enough to NYC to get it but sadly not. 37ms ping 13.34 download 6.9 upload

  • kleblanc1005

    Really no cities in Louisiana??? WTF???

    • RTA1023

      Louisiana is, apparently, now part of Kentucky

  • Arturo Duarte

    I live I cali love these speeds

  • cransr

    indiana has pa cities might need to fix that

  • neo1738

    Toledo, OH sucks, still getting 1.32 down and 2 up with 2 bars.

  • J.C. Study

    WTF? We are the 2nd largest city in Indiana and not on the list! Fort Wayne has a huge Verizon presence! Thans VZW! NOT!

  • Cory Pitkavish

    all the cities under indiana are from PA lol

  • Mike Broder

    yeah i’m running slower than i was yesterday…lol

  • babalacassa

    Well I got 40.37mbps. Damn photo won’t load

  • babalacassa

    Lima Ohio

  • jamaall

    Typo: Dover is the only city in Delaware. Fort Myers and Fort Pierce are in Florida.

  • Hell yes for Athens. GA. The Dawgs make this area useless on Game Day.

  • Vanquishgc

    I just did a speed test and got 60 mbps download. That’s insane. There goes AT&T claiming to have the fastest data network…

  • Dane Carpenter

    drats. I just sold my unlimited data plan

  • Don

    How is Milwauke,Wi not part of this.

  • Detonation

    This was a few weeks ago in South Eastern Wisconsin…no need for XLTE here!

  • Arian

    I think I actually cheered when I saw Charlottesville. Can’t get any service in town when there’s football games because so many people drive in and bog down the network. Cheers, Verizon

  • duke69111

    They must of forgot Wichita, Ks. From my G2.

    • ceejw

      Does the G2 always have the GPS icon in the notification bar?

      • duke69111

        No. I don’t think so. I had just run a speed test and it was searching for my location.

  • ShangTsung702

    WTF????? This isn’t a complete list. Here is the OFFICIAL LIST from VZW’s website. (Compare Pennsylvania between the two).


  • Brian Winning Jr.

    Not sure if the switch was flipped in Pittsburgh or not but these are my results on my Moto X

  • BA_Carroll

    Just visiting and thought I’d run a speed test.

  • sgtguthrie

    Doesn’t matter if you can’t afford the data! All the faster to fill up your tiered data quota with! Screw Verizon…they lost me when they quit offering unlimited data.

  • Mike

    Apparently I need to move to Pittsburgh Indiana instead of where I currently live…. Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

    Actually, on second look, it looks like the table is screwed up, pretty bad.

  • Jeralmac

    Huh, Rochester, MN hasn’t apparently seen any changes. In fact, it’s dreadful today, I just got .53 Mbps down and 1.27 up.

  • J. Gilbertson

    I hope this is why my LTE had been crap all last week. Got so bad being on 3G constantly at my house that I called Verizon to file a network issue ticket. Sad thing though is despite this tower upgrade I won’t get to experience the XLTE. Old Droid Razr Maxx. Upgrade time is in one month and I’m debating dropping Verizon for AT&T or T-Mobile or prepaid. Still got my unlimited data but I’m not sure if I want to keep paying the Verizon premium.

    • pyro74boy .

      Yeah I understand because I’m in the same vote as you are because I’m using a Samsung Note2 and it does not have band4 on it. I’m also not on contract just like you and have been thinking about switching to T-mobile because they have much better deals. I also have unlimited data just like you as well so at this point I don’t really know what to do. Maybe Verizon will be kind enough to give me a free phone that supports XLTE but I know that would be wishful thinking on my part LOL

  • Mark Mann

    Funny how we would be excited for this roll out yet the majority of comments here are complaining about the list being screwy… Also, “wah! My home isn’t listed!”

  • pyro74boy .

    Now if they just made it so my Note2 has band 4 that would be the perfect end to this story. I’m still getting crazy fast speeds though so I guess I really have nothing to complain about. LOL

  • Randie Rosa

    Not sure if it’s been said but Fort Myers and Fort pierce- Vero Beach are both in FL, not DE.

  • teebone

    Why in the f**k do the smaller cities in Wisconsin have it but not the 2 biggest cities, Madison and Milwaukee???? duh!!!!!!

    • Bradwest414

      Verizon has since updated their website: http://s7.vzw.com/is/content/VerizonWireless/eCatalogs/Verizon-XLTE-markets.pdf

      We’re on the list, but I’m not seeing any speed increases downtown as of this evening

      • teebone

        Yeah I checked now but I’m getting what I got before which makes me think I’ve had Xlte for sometime now. I’m getting around 54 download but the upload is crap for whatever reason. That speed veries however. I’ve been getting nothing lower then 35 download speeds since a few months ago which makes me think it’s been on in Madison for a while now. Before a couple months ago when I started to see the speed increases I got around 15 to 20 down.. Guess I’ll keep testing it. Thanks for the update.
