Verizon launches new network in Port Angeles

The city is one of 14 in the state to see the LTE Advanced network.

PORT ANGELES — Verizon has launched its LTE Advanced network in Port Angeles, one of 14 cities in the state to see the roll out.

A launch of Verizon’s LTE Advanced means Port Angeles customers will be able to stream video and music, play games and transfer files at 50 percent faster peak speeds, said a Verizon spokesperson.

Verizon LTE Advanced uses software that combines multiple channels to speed mobile data over the network more quickly, according to Verizon Wireless.

The result, Verizon said, is 50 percent faster peak speeds in cities nationwide for customers using one of the 39 LTE Advanced-capable phones and tablets on Verizon’s network.

Those include Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 smartphones, Moto Droids and Apple iPhones.

As new devices from Apple, Samsung, LG and other manufacturers are introduced, they will be LTE Advanced-capable, Verizon said.
