Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) has added 4G LTE coverage for 33 new markets, and has expanded coverage for 32 existing markets, including some big ones. Verizon says it's on track to provide LTE to 400 markets by year's end, up from a current 337. By contrast, AT&T (T) currently offers LTE in just 47 markets. Sprint (S), which until now has been relying on Clearwire's WiMAX 4G network, just began providing LTE in 15 metro areas.
