Verizon 4G teaser site goes live
posted by PhoneArena Team / Sep 21, 2010, 10:43 AM
There are only a few sentences about their upcoming 4G network to even read on this site. The paragraph is as follows:
What is Verizon’s 4G? It’s your signal…at full-tilt.
It’s an abundance of bandwidth. Reducing your lag time significantly.
And it’s a powerful signal that makes you invincible.
Um so what can we all learn from that? Well we know that the LTE network will go live on the 700 MHz spectrum which will allow it to penetrate buildings with ease, so that takes care of the powerful signal claim. We know 4G is a lot faster than 3G, as we have seen with the 4G WiMax network. So pretty much Verizon is just re-emphasizing what we already know, in an effort to make us want it even more.
At the bottom of the site, Verizon has a box for users to enter in their e-mail address. That will give you the option to receive alerts about upcoming 4G availability and pricing. So what do you think? Will Verizon’s 4G network be “the cutting edge of mobile greatness?” Share your thoughts in the comments below.

How much will Verizon Wireless charge for 4G. Will it be the same as I am currently paying now for 3G ?

Last time I checked Sprint charged extra for there 4g service and ATT charges less but caps your data. No matter what a company does you find something to bitch about. Let me guess. You want everything for free! Because that makes sense. If you don't want to pay extra for 4g then don't get it. Also... cable companies have always charged different rates for different internet speeds. Now why can't a cell company do the same?

Im so tired of hearing people complain! I doubt its going to cost more, because it will be limited to those who jump to it right away, and those who are serious about the DATA. the great thing is its going to separate the whiners complaining about "never using data" and sticking them with 3G data and the ones who want to let it rip on the 4g. Smart phone users and Broadband cards to the LTE line please. Losers and people who dont know what the hell they are doing in the 3g line please. Oh and the btchers can just eat shit.

iheartblueberry, ATT does not have 4g! I hate when people say their iphones have 4g. Its NOT on the 4G netowork, it is the fourth gen of the iphone. The reason they charge extra for owning an iphone is because part of every iphones data pack is paid to Apple. Apple not only makes money off the phones sales, but every month they recieve a FAT check from every monthly user using an iphone. Let me say it again, ATT does NOT have 4G speeds. The only nationwide carrier with 4G is Sprint. And they will be the only ones for at least a half a year. And by the time they roll thiers out, Sprint will be miles ahead as far as coveragew and reliability. Plus, Sprint is (on average) 25% less expensive than big red. Its really a no brainer to switch to Sprint and STAY with Sprint in the coming years. Just today I saw someone save $50 a month when they switched to Sprint. They HAD (with verizon) limited text, limited mins, and unlimited date/web. But when they switched they got unlimited text, unlimited mins to any mobile, unlimited data/web, unlimited tv, unlimited gps (used if its not gmaps compatible), unlimited 4G, and unlimited radio. For one person that unlimited plan is 79.99 (69.99 without 4G). On Verizon, for just unlimited talk its 69.99! Sorry for the rant, but it just pisses me off when people go around saying ATT has 4G. Do your research.

i love how you just tried to rip on them when they had net adds....... Also Wimax is the only service that has the ability to be true 4g if sprint decides to upgrade it. verison's lte and tmobiles hspa dont have the ability to be upgraded any further, whereas with Wimax can be upgraded to Wimax 2 which is 10 times faster then lte ( real world speeds of around 100mbs)
