The telecom giant continued to gain wireless customers as it expanded its 4G LTE mobile broadband network, the largest one in the country. The service is now available to 273 million people, almost 90 percent of the population. Capitalizing on the network expansion, Verizon Wireless added eight 4G LTE smartphones and three tablets to its list of devices in Q4, notably benefitting from the launch of the Apple’s new iPad, the iPad mini and of course iPhone 5, the only Apple handset that supports LTE. The company’s FiOS Internet and FiOS TV also expanded, passing 17.6 million premises at year-end 2012.
