Verizon Wireless is expanding 4G service west of Boston

Verizon Wireless said it will expand its 4G LTE network service to an additional 29 suburbs of Boston, most of them west of the city.

Subscribers to the company’s 4G service will get faster Internet surfing and better video streaming on their 4G enabled smartphones, tablets, and other devices. According to Verizon Wireless, its 4G service is 10 times faster than its previous generation 3G service.

The company first began offering 4G service in Greater Boston in December, with the service area stretching roughly as far north as Lawrence and as far south as Brockton; 17 suburbs west of Boston already have access to Verizon Wireless 4G.


As of tomorrow, the company’s 4G coverage will expand farther west. Besides far western Boston suburbs, the company said it is also switching on 4G service to Worcester and many of its surrounding communities, Verizon Wireless said in a press release.

Communities set to get 4G coverage tomorrow include Ashland, Bellingham, Boxborough, Dover, Foxborough, Framingham, Franklin, Groton, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlborough, Maynard, Medfield, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, Plainville, Sharon, Sherborn, Stow, Sudbury, Tyngsborough, Walpole, Wayland, West, Bridgewater, Westford, and Wrentham.

To see if they live in a 4G coverage area, consumers can go to a special page on the Verizon Wireless website and type in their addresses, the company said.
