Time to take it up a notch, as Verizon presents its 4G LTE Hotspot Mobile Network! Now available at selected territories.

Why go 3G when you can go 4G? If speed is what you’re looking for, then speed is what you’ll be getting. Verizon Wireless introduces its first mobile 4G LTE Hotspot network, which is set for a debut this 31st of March. This marks the first time Verizon will launch a mobile network ever since the Verizon Network was unveiled last December.
