    Default Verizon will launch XLTE on May 19th

    Not really sure if this is something new or if this is just the official announcement of aws.

    Verizon may unveil their XLTE network on May 19 | Android Central

    I am guessing AWS.

    Just another one of their special branding names... Not too fond of the name either. Hopefully they won't have the Verizon logo + the 4G LTE logo + XLTE logo all on the phone.

    Replacing 4G LTE's logo with an XLTE logo for applicable devices would make sense so the customer knows which are compatible with AWS.

    Probably, based on the description. Similar to what t-mobile calls wideband lte most likely.

    Is there a list of all phones that will operate on this band?

    Seems like any aws phone, so basically s4,s5,note 3, g2,Moto X, and most phones from last year.

    Probably biggest and exception being the m7.

    Just a quick Google search, so it may not be 100% accurate, and probably missing some, but just a rough list:

    iPhone 5S
    iPhone 5C
    HTC One (M8)
    LG G2
    Lucid 3
    DROID Ultra/MAXX
    DROID Mini
    Moto X
    Lumia 928
    Lumia 2520
    Lumia Icon
    Galaxy S5
    Galaxy S4
    Galaxy S4 Mini
    Galaxy Note 3
    ASUS Nexus 7 LTE

    Some stuff may require OTA update (assuming the user hasn't updated them recently, like for the DROIDs and S4)

    Is this similar to the move we all made from 3g to 4G where all phones will soon run on new frequencies and towers for data? I'm just curious if this is where Verizon is going to boot all of the people on unlimited by saying that no one can be grandfathered here because this is a new type of data.

    No one knows exactly. But it sounds like aws related which a number of current devices can use

    Can't wait to see the markets/cities where this will be available. One of the reasons I traded in my M7.

    Even if you don't have an aws phone, if you are in an aws area, it would help to reduce network load as some phones will operate on XLTE.

    Also keep in mind even though a city is listed as xlte, some towers in the city might not be aws capable. Verizon is upgrading the most heavily loaded towers first.

    I don't think the s3 or n2 have the radios for the aws spectrum.

    S3 isn't aws capable. It doesn't have the hardware. Certain phones like the s4 and Note 3 had aws added via update.

    It only makes a difference in high school load areas. I am in Los Angeles, and some areas have xlte, others don't. They are still expanding.

    Also Verizon has been quietly rolling out xlte, I have been using it since last year. I think it is large enough now that they are making an official announcement.

    Those crazy teens! Sorry couldn't resist.

    I've noticed increased speeds and network performance around Birmingham, AL, particularly around work (heavily populated business area), since the end of last year. Since this is on my Note 2 (doesn't support the new AWS spectrum), it's from newer devices utilizing the new AWS freeing up the old spectrum.

    Are you sure that's AWS? I am hitting that in some spots here in Jacksonville on T-Mobile and I don't think we have anything like 20x20 LTE here yet.

    Don't believe Droid Razr M has AWS. Previously best download was about 30 Mb/s. Could it be all of the new phones moving to AWS freeing up bandwith for older phones?
