Verizon Wireless today announced it has expanded the reach of its "XLTE" footprint by 22 markets. Verizon's LTE network runs on 700MHz almost nationwide, but it has been adding coverage in the 1700MHz band throughout the year and marketing the dual-band 700/1700MHz coverage as XLTE. According to Verizon, four out of five of its LTE markets have access to this dual-band coverage, which is available in about 400 cities and towns across the country. Verizon didn't name the 22 new markets that launched today.

I don't think so

4 out of 5 Verizon "markets" now have XLTE? In this state, where they cover 95% with native service, there are only 8 cities & towns with XLTE according to the Verizon XLTE list on their website. Looking at the list of cities in other states, large and small, they cannot possibly cover 4 out of 5 markets around the country. This is marketing-speak at its worst. It's just impossible.
