Verizon Delivers Technology to Rural America

Texas is big — more than 250,000 square miles of area — and most of it is rural.

RURAL RESIDENTS SHOULD RECEIVE HIGH QUALITY MOBILE SERVICES AND SUPPORT


Texas is one of the largest states in America, encompassing more than 250,000 square miles, which includes a significant number of rural areas.

It’s just as important for residents in rural areas to receive the same quality of mobile service and support as city dwellers. For some wireless carriers, servicing rural areas may be an after-thought, but Verizon has continuously delivered advanced high-speed wireless technology to even the most remote towns and counties.    

VERIZON LAUNCHED INITIATIVE IN 2010

In fact, Verizon launched a rural-focused initiative in 2010 – LTE in Rural America Program. The goal? Expand coverage to rural parts of the country.

Since inception through 2015, Verizon, while working with 21 program partners, activated more than 1,000 4G LTE cell sites, distributing signal to more than 50 certified wireless devices, such as smartphones, tablets and other connected devices.

Verizon believes every community, regardless of size, deserves access to wireless service and technology.

This enabled residents in outlying areas to upload and download large files, stream video, access the internet, play online games and more, at fast 4G LTE speeds.

All because Verizon believes every community, regardless of size, deserves access to wireless service and technology.

The trend in mobile reliance is here to stay and will continue moving forward, so it’s vital for residents in less-populated areas to get the same level of quality wireless service and support as residents in metro areas and popular suburbs.

Verizon continues to enhance its network in areas across the country – whether it is a major city like Dallas or a small town on the outskirts of Fort Worth – enhancing cell sites in many areas enables Verizon customers to access technology wherever they may be.
