Verizon chooses Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent to construct the first 4G network

For the future network, Verizon will use the 700MHz spectrum that it has recently purchased.

I wonder what would be the big difference between 3G and the new 4G network (not to mention faster transfer rates)... As far as I know 4G standard has not been defined as of yet... Although there was some Japanese company NTT DoCoMo that has been testing a 4G communication system prototype that was capable of transmission rates of approximately 5 Gbit/s in the downlink with 12x12 MIMO using a 100MHz frequency bandwidth while moving at 10 km/h.

Hahaha Wimax "4G"? Thats like calling Edge "3G". What a joke. Wimax will give sprint an "edge" for the short term, but in two or three years they will be in the same boat AT&T is in now with 3G: Too invested in last year's technology (edge) and two years behind in rolling out today's technology (HSDPA). Wimax is only 4G by definition, if they built a new network at ALL, it would be called 4th generation, the same way a retarded great grandson would still be considered 4th generation. 4G, but everyone is still going to call him retarded.
