Verizon expands 4G service to North Idaho, Pullman, Kettle Falls, Schweitzer

Verizon Wireless will expand 4G service in the Inland Northwest later this year, to include Chewelah, Coeur d’Alene, Colville, Deer Lake, Harrison, Hayden, Kellogg, Kettle Falls, Newport, Post Falls, Priest Lake, Sandpoint, Spirit Lake, St. Maries and Washington State University's Pullman campus.

That opens the door for Verizon customers with 4G LTE smartphones, laptop modems and hotspots to kick up to the highest broadband speeds available to them.
 
Also included in the upgrade is Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain ski resorts near Sandpoint and Kellogg.
 
Late last year Verizon Wireless opened its  4G LTE network for Spokane County.
 
The company's press department noted: "In real-world, fully-loaded network environments, 4G LTE users should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink."
