There may still be half-a-dozen weeks to go until summer is here in full effect, but with temperatures on the way up, and days getting longer, it sure can feel like it’s just around the corner. For plenty of us, our thoughts are already drifting towards vacation-time, and if you’re living in the Northeastern US, that can mean taking a trip down to the shore. Alongside beach blankets, coolers, and bodyboards, you can bet we’ll be packing our smartphones and tablets, as well. If you’re a Verizon subscriber, we’ve got some news that should make your vacation plans a little bit sweeter, with the carrier announcing today expanded LTE access across the Jersey Shore and Delaware beach regions.
The new Jersey Shore areas where Verizon’s flipping-on LTE service run straight down the coast, covering Sea Bright, Monmouth Beach, Belmar, Point Pleasant, Toms River, Atlantic City, and into Cape May County. We’re not sure just how far south that extends, but from the sound of things you might lose LTE coverage as you get closer to Cape May itself. Fortunately, the Delaware coast is much smaller, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding a 4G signal in the major beach communities like Rehoboth and Bethany.
If your idea of a relaxing weekend involves a bit less sand and sea water, Verizon’s also bringing LTE to nearby Lancaster and York, PA. After all, what goes better with touring Amish country than high-speed wireless data?
