Is the Note 3 compatible with the new Verizon XLTE network coming?

I read that Verizon will be unveiling their new XLTE network on May 19th?  The new service is supposed to provide better service in 50 new markets.

Will the Note 3 work on the new network?

What are the 50 new markets?

I've already noticed an increase in speeds and confirmed it using speedtest as shown above. I originally thought it was the recent KitKat update that brought the increased speeds until I saw this thread. The speeds averaged between 20-40 Mbps when I first got the Note 3 back in early April and now the speeds are about 50-75 Mbps on average. Is it possible that Verizon has already rolled out XLTE or could I see internet speeds go even higher when they do roll out XLTE?

You might want to check their press releases to find out if they have released any of that information.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

The Note 3 is compatible because the last Jellybean update in December enabled Band 4 LTE according to Samsung's changelog here. Like Mikeg814, I also have been getting faster speeds comparable to his screenshots on my Note 3 during the last few days. I haven't done a speedtest in a while prior to last week, so I can't say when I started to see these faster speeds in my area.
