To access the Verizon 4G LTE network, turn on the cellular data option in your smartphone or tablet. In order to use this network, you must have an active service contract with Verizon that includes provisions for mobile data.
The first requirement for using the Verizon 4G LTE network is a device that contains the components necessary to access it. Due to the ways in which the signal broadcasts from cellular towers, devices need a special receiver component to function on the network, which means that older phones cannot use it. If you have a 4G LTE phone and an active Verizon contract, open your phone's Settings menu, and turn on your cellular data to connect to the network.
The term "4G LTE" refers to the two components of wireless data transmission. 4G, the first component, indicates that the network is the fourth generation of wireless data streaming technology. The second component stands for "Long Term Evolution" and represents the overall method for transmitting the data from cellular towers to phones while maintaining high speeds. The Verizon 4G LTE network is the high-speed cellular data network available to Verizon customers in particular, as each cellular provider operates its own network for customers.
