More than 75 people attended an in-store event in Kokomo, IN today to celebrate the launch of Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network. Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight handed out 50 candy bars at the South Reed Road store, and two lucky winners picked the hidden golden tickets inside. We were really excited because this was the first 4G LTE Verizon event that a mayor attended! Goodnight, who helped hand out the candy bars to the waiting crowd, lauded the network launch and what it means for residents and businesses of Kokomo – especially for economic development initiatives.
