Verizon to roll out its LTE network service in 38 markets as soon as they hit the switch. Perhaps more exciting is the news that six 4G smartphones and tablets will land in the first half of next year. Verizon is leveraging its newly acquired 700 MHz spectrum for the network which means that the signal will have little trouble penetrating buildings or other man made obstacles.
Verizon state: “Verizon Wireless expects 4G LTE average data rates to be 5-12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2-5 Mbps on the uplink in real-world, loaded network environments. These speeds are significantly faster than Verizon Wireless and other wireless providers’ current or promised 3G network speeds.”
