HomeFusion Broadband, a service that provides high-speed in-home Internet access leveraging the power and speed of Verizon’s 4G LTE network, is now available to Indiana residents.
HomeFusion Broadband offers consumers a reliable alternative for residential broadband, especially in rural and remote areas with limited broadband choices. The new service provides connectivity for a wide range of devices, including computers and gaming consoles, using the Verizon 4G LTE network, which is now available in 230 markets covering more than two-thirds of the population in the United States.
“HomeFusion Broadband is another example of Verizon Wireless’ commitment to providing consumers with the most innovative products and services,” said John Granby, president-Indiana/Michigan/Kentucky Region for Verizon Wireless. “With HomeFusion Broadband, customers across the United States and Indiana, in towns large and small, will have the chance to link devices to the Internet and take advantage of the speed, coverage and connectivity offered by our 4G LTE network.”
Verizon began launching 4G LTE in Indiana in the fall of 2010, first at the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette.
HomeFusion Broadband uses a professionally installed, cylinder-shaped antenna attached to a customer’s home. The antenna’s innovative design includes multiple internal antennae, allowing the device to pick up the best Verizon 4G LTE signal available and transmit it to a broadband router inside the home. The router can connect up to four wired and at least 20 wireless devices inside the home using Wi-Fi.
In real-world, fully loaded network environments, consumers should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second on the downlink and 2 to 5 megabits on the uplink.
HomeFusion Broadband has been available in some markets, including Terre Haute, Ind., since March. For more information about HomeFusion Broadband, go to www.verizonwireless.com/homefusionbroadband or visit a Verizon Wireless Communications Store.
