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.”

Silver Mountain will be open Saturday

Silver Mountain Resort will be open Saturday, extending a ski and snow-boarding season cushioned by 400 inches of snow.

“We've been blessed with over four feet of snow recently, and the short-term forecast looks promising for more,” spokesman John Williams said.

He  said all 1,600 acres of the Kellogg mountain will be open, with lift tickets priced at $35 for adults, $25 for youths below age 18. Children less than six years  old ski free.

The four other ski areas in the Inland Northwest closed Sunday.
