4G LTE wireless networks are largely helpful to people interested in Internet connectivity. The networks allow people to do a number of things, including streaming online videos without buffering issues, faster downloading of files, multitasking on the Internet and uploading or downloading pictures with ease.

Over 308 million people in the United States are connected to the 4G network, according to Verizon Wireless. This number refers to the company's customer base only. However, a larger number is covered by other network providers in the country.

Smartphones, tablets and Internet-enabled cameras are some of the devices that can be used to access the network and benefit from its advantages.
