LTE advance is not commercialize as of yet.It make sense for Verizon to deploy reg LTE until its ready. LTE Advance wont be ready until the next 2 to 3 years. When ready, all they will have to do is apply the software upgrade for LTE Advance.

To be considered true 4G, LTE Advanced has to reach 1Gbps in "low mobility" situations, and 100Mbps in "high mobility", i.e. blasting away on the interstate :-)
