BROOMFIELD, Colo.–(BUSINESSWIRE)–
Level 3 Communications, Inc. today announced that it is
providing Verizon Wireless with backbone infrastructure and cell-site
backhaul solutions to support its ongoing rollout of its 4G Long Term
Evolution (LTE) network.

Driven by the proliferation of rich applications and video on
smartphones, tablets, laptops and e-readers, Verizon Wireless will rely
on Level 3’s nationwide fiber-optic network and responsive team to meet
the growing demand for mobile data. Level 3 helps Verizon Wireless build
the network headroom and redundancy needed to accommodate the projected
network growth tied to its 4G LTE network rollout.

“Customers’ demand for mobile data is growing exponentially, and we are
expanding the reach of our 4G LTE network to ensure we meet that need,”
said Verizon Wireless Network Vice President Nicki Palmer. “Level 3’s
technology will help us provide our 4G LTE customers with a mobile
experience that is fast, reliable and rich with content.”

Level 3 is also supporting cell-site backhaul requirements in a number
of rural markets in New England and the Western United States for
Verizon Wireless by leveraging its recently launched Tower Access
solution that combines connectivity to existing cell towers with a mix
of new on-site tower construction and colocation at Level 3 sites.

“Wireless consumers and enterprise users demand the ability to be
connected to everything, everywhere, all the time – something we’ve been
ready to handle for years,” said Andrew Crouch, president of Sales for
Level 3. “Starting over a decade ago, we designed a network from the
ground up to handle evolving and growing data needs. Verizon Wireless is
leveraging our technologies to build one of the world’s most advanced
wireless networks.”

Verizon Wireless is a global leader in 4G LTE deployment. Verizon
Wireless expects 4G LTE average data rates to be 5 to 12 megabits per
second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink in
real-world, loaded network environments. These speeds are significantly
faster than current or promised 3G network speeds. To date, Verizon
Wireless has announced that consumer and business customers in at least
147 U.S. cities will have access to the fastest, most advanced 4G mobile
network in America by the end of 2011.

Level 3’s scalable, continuously upgradable network supports today’s
applications and lays the foundation for tomorrow’s IP-centric wireless
infrastructures. For more information on Level 3’s advanced network and
