The LTE trials being run by Verizon Wireless are going well, and the company says it is still on schedule to make LTE available to 100 million Americans by the end 2010, reports “ZDNet” (http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=31508&tag=wrapper;col1).
The the real-world broadband speeds that engineers are seeing on the nascent 4G network are “way beyond what customers get on the current 3G networks (including Verizon’s),” the article adds.
“We are on track to deliver an outstanding wireless data experience to customers in 25 to 30 markets covering roughly 100 million people by year’s end,” Verizon Wireless Chief Technical Officer Tony Melone says. “As device makers, manufacturers and others around the world begin to introduce newer and faster products to take advantage of these incredible new speeds, Verizon Wireless will be positioned to offer our customers new and exciting [services].”
Okay, now how about a “Verizon iPhone”?
