Full Answer

Verizon enjoys many advantages from operating with multiple frequencies. For instance, the 850 megahertz and 1,900 megahertz frequency bands employ older and cheaper technology. As such, Verizon uses them in serving a larger, less demanding and populated geographical area. To cater to areas that have high population densities while providing faster data connections, Verizon uses the 700 megahertz and 1,700/2,100 megahertz frequency bands.
