Verizon Wireless on Sunday launched its super-fast 4G LTE (long-term evolution) network in most of Orange County as part of a rollout that includes 38 major metropolitan areas and more than 60 airports.

The service extends as far as San Clemente and includes John Wayne Airport. And, it is touted as the "fastest and most advanced" network of its kind in the U.S.

With 4G LTE, for example, laptop users will experience speeds up to 10 times faster than the company's 3G platform. Users also can share videos and pictures in real-time, download and view full-length HD-quality movies – and "eventually network things you've never networked before," according to the company.

Other advantages include higher data rates, stronger indoor coverage, reduced latency – or lag time – improvements in mobility and battery-power consumption, and enhanced security for users.

“Just as 3G wireless networks are changing the way we live, work and play, 4G LTE holds the promise of even greater productivity and the opportunity to experience wireless at unprecedented speeds, and in ways we can't yet imagine," said Luis Cruz, region president of Verizon Wireless.
