Carrying 60% of global LTE traffic, Verizon’s LTE network is the largest in the world, covering more than 250 million people in over 370 U.S. markets. 

Our August webinar will be hosted by Milan Vuckovic, analyst – Wireless Policy Development, at Verizon. Using Verizon-specific examples, our host will explore the deployment of LTE in the U.S. and examine how LTE can drive economic growth as a robust wireless broadband platform, in an attempt to answer the following questions and more:

  • How can robust mobile broadband capabilities enable socio-economic development in areas of healthcare, education, sustainability, and entrepreneurship, raising the standard of living and increasing economic productivity in a country or region?
  • What are the benefits of using lower-band spectrum frequencies, including 700 MHz, to deliver broadband services and provide coverage to rural and hard-to-reach communities?

Join us for our next webinar on Tuesday, 28th August at 13:00 GMT. Attendance is free, but registration is required.
