At the CTIA conference, Verizon recently announced that they plan to have 4G LTE coverage for 147 US cities by the end of the year. This is an increase from the increase of 49 markets which Verizon made public back during CES, and the 30 NFL markets they had planned before the end of last year.
Looking at the map above, the yellow dots are cities which already have access to Verizon's 4G LTE network, while the green stars indicate the cities which Verizon plans on adding support for this year. The red areas indicate where Verizon has network coverage.
The latest announcement means that most states will have at least one 4G market by year's end. Alaska, Montana, Wyoming, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, and Alaska don't appear to be included. Currently, there aer over 110 million people living in Verizon's 4G LTE coverage areas.
