Verizon Wireless sets on CETECOM for LTE device testing
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 16, 2010, 4:53 AM
The process for companies who want to submit their LTE devices to CETECOM engineers for certification will be laid out at a later time. The carrier's LTE network is bound to use the Upper 700MHz C-spectrum, and is scheduled to be operational starting next year.

"The carrier's LTE network is bound to use the Upper 700MHz C-spectrum, and is scheduled to be operational starting next year." I just read an article in the Wall Street Journal that Verizon says LTE network deployment is ahead of schedule and you could see it go live as early as August or September. Does any VZW employee out there have any info to address this discrepency?

I am not a vzw employee. But from strong sources LTE will go live with DATA products this year and gradually with voice products hopefully by next year end. And they will do this, one market at a time, so if they say this year does not mean complete USA market. I guess

I am a Verizon Employee, and i can tell you that you should start seeing 4G mobile broadband cards (aircards) out this summer around Aug or Sept. The first 4G handsets will start to arrive shortly after around Nov. and Dec. By 2013, All of Verizon's Smartphones will be of the 4G veriety and backwards compatible with the 3G network. Also, just to give you a glimspe into the 4G expansion - At this time we have 27% of the nation covered by 4G. By November 2010 we will be able to offer 4G to over 100 million customers in the U.S. By 2013, the LTE 4G network will be more extensive than our current 3G network, with metropolitan area's overlapping coverage and oversaturation to ensure highest customer satisfaction and speeds.
