As expected, Verizon added LTE service for its Allset prepaid plans on Tuesday. Previously, Verizon’s prepaid customers were stuck with sluggish data from its CDMA network. Prices are staying the same as before: the base plan, which includes unlimited calls, texts, and 500MB of mobile data, costs $45 and you get the option to add 1GB and 3GB blocks of rollover data. LTE speeds will require an LTE-capable device, and you can either bring your own or purchase one from Verizon. If you’ve got an XLTE-capable device, you can take advantage of the added speeds from Verizon’s new LTE network as well.
Verizon will turn on LTE for its Allset prepaid plans this July, according to a report.
Now that it has a name, Verizon has started revealing more details about its new LTE network in the AWS band. It covers half of Verizon’s current 4G footprint and 35 percent of its LTE devices.
A new Verizon LTE ad has popped up online touting doubled 4G capacity. This is the same network Verizon started rolling out in October. It looks like Verizon is now ready to started marketing it.
