49 more markets to get Verizon 4G turned on by the first half of 2011
In December, as we reported, Verizon had its LTE 4G network turned on in 38 markets. Now, a list has been discovered that names 49 more markets that will receive Big Red's LTE service by the first half of this year. With the carrier already expected to have 140 markets covered by its 4G service by the end of 2011, another 50 should be turned on to Verizon's LTE in the second half of this year.

One main question on the mind of every Verizon customer is how much will the carrier be charging for LTE service. The carrier right now charges $50 for 5 GB and $80 for 10 GB on its 4G USB modem, but prices could be different for smartphones. Hopefully, we will hear something from Verizon soon about pricing so that those out there dreaming of a Motorola DROID BIONIC or an HTC Thunderbolt in their hands will know what to expect in terms of their monthly bill.
