Following on from AT&T’s recent LTE rollout, Verizon has added some new markets of its own in addition to expanding coverage in some existing areas. Android Central reports that Big Red's 4G service now covers additional cities in Kansas, Colorado, and Georgia, as well as some new markets in California, Idaho, Montana, Ohio, and Wyoming. Meanwhile, LTE coverage will further expand today across Illinois, as well as Nebraska and Minnesota. Both Verizon and AT&T have pledged to blanket the country with LTE by the end of 2013, with the most recent coverage announcements no doubt a reaction to the imminent launch of the iPhone 5 on Friday.
