New Verizon 4G LTE commercial to air Sunday night
Sprint advertises its 4G enabled phones, and T-Mobile goes on the tube to brag that it has the largest 4G network in America. As we reported, Verizon recently put up signs in its stores saying that the carrier is the fastest 4G network in the U.S. Now, Big Red is taking its LTE promotion to television with a new ad discussing the lightening fast speed of 4G on Verizon.

Ironically, even though it is making claims about having the fastest 4G network, the carrier will not actually flip the switch on the speedy pipelines until  next month when just a few cities get LTE. But what does it matter? Outside of a couple of LTE modems, Verizon won't have any 4G equipment to sell you until LTE enabled phones become available next February.

I did not see anything in the video saying they were the fastest. Also you notice that the 4 G commercial was in the country. The other carriers are not getting to suburbs before Verizon. Weak post. I don't live directly in the city so wimax is no good.

A couple days ago PA posted an article showing posters that Verizon had posted at their retail locations saying that they had the fastest 4G network, it was not referring to the commercial.

& of course as usual with Big Red be prepared to pay even higher prices as if they werent already high enough with them. No Thanks. Sticking with Sprint & I don't need the "4g" anyway.
