Verizon’s LTE market has officially hit its 500th stop in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Parkersburg is the third largest city in West Virginia with a population of 31,000 people.

Parkersburg marks a milestone that Verizon’s 4G LTE network build out is basically complete, with their LTE network covering over 99% of their 3G network. Available to 298 million people nationwide, more than 95% of the population has access to Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

To celebrate the milestone, Verizon held a city-wide scavenger hunt and donated $50,000 in grants to local domestic violence prevention agencies. Afterwards guests at the event were treated to a seminar on what 4G LTE means to residents, hosted by Verizon Region President Mark Frazier and local elected official Sen. David Nohe.
