Verizon is adding 16 more 4G towns and cities to its network this week as it barrels towards its goal of completing its Long Term Evolution (LTE) deployment by the middle of next year.

Verizon says that it is firing up LTE in 16 new locations in Arizona, Iowa, Nebraska and New Mexico on Thursday. Verizon promises average downloads of 12 Mbit/s to 15 Mbit/s on the new network, although the throughput can be higher than that range in certain markets. (See Top Five 4G LTE Cities in the US and The Best 3G & 4G Cities in America.)

The network is coming to these markets and some surrounding areas on Dec. 20:

  • Casa Grande, Ariz.
  • Flagstaff, Prescott & Sedona, Ariz.
  • Payson, Ariz.
  • Saddlebrooke, Ariz.
  • Marshalltown, Iowa
  • Mason City & Charles City, Iowa
  • Oskaloosa, Iowa
  • Hastings & Kearney, Neb.
  • McCook, Neb.
  • Farmington & Gallup, N.M.
  • Ruidoso, N.M.


Why this matters
Verizon is way ahead of its U.S. rivals in deploying LTE, with 470 markets going live with the additions this week. LTE is a key selling point for Verizon as it plans to complete its initial rollout by the middle of next year.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
