As of mid-2015, Verizon Wireless has areas in all 50 states as well as parts of Canada and Mexico that have 3G coverage, although most of the United States now has 4G LTE coverage. The type of coverage varies depending on location.
Most major U.S. metropolitan areas have 4G LTE coverage, but there were small pockets of 3G coverage scattered throughout each state.
Verizon provides a map on its website that shows coverage of the entire United States, Canada and Mexico. A user can zoom in and pan to specific areas of the map to see the type of coverage. Areas in the United States with 3G coverage have a cherry red color on the map. Brown indicates Extended 3G coverage, while 4G LTE and 4G LTE Extended coverage are in darker shades of red. Coverage areas with 3G in Canada and Mexico are yellow. Areas in white on the map have no Verizon Wireless coverage.
The map is also searchable by address, city and state, or ZIP code. Users can type in any or all information about a specific location and the map zooms in to that location, showing the coverage in greater detail. The map also allows users to filter on other types of Verizon services, such as cellular voice and prepaid.
