Verizon Service in Alaska?
March 8, 2013 at 4:56 pm. Well we’re back to update the site after hooking up with Verizon Wireless for the past two years through their wireless internet services. We tried the USB Mobile Broadband 551 aircard in our windows laptops both here in Alaska and in the states too. When stateside the system works very good with blazing fast download speeds and very good coverage in most areas. But what we’re concerned about is how the service fared here in Alaska where AT&T has been so dominate for years.
As expected, the 4G LTE Network has still yet to be provided and with two years passing by the services is spotty and sluggish at best. Considering all the hype in 2011 about Verizon making a big splash in Alaska we are yet to see anything but a ripple.
4G Verizon iPhone
Apple’s next big iPhone announcement will be for a 4G Verizon iPhone, instead of the iPhone 5. The 4G Verizon iPhone should be available in Alaska as early as this summer. A new and welcome addition to the Alaska Cellular market, Verizon Wireless, one of the two largest cellular companies in the United States will be broadening your choices on wireless access and cell phone providers real soon. Verizon, in competition with AT&T, will be offering the iPhones including the iPhone 4 as well as the new iPhone 5 when it’s released in the fall of 2011.
