Verizon launches LTE around December 5th
As you already know today is the day for Verizon's press conference, which is supposed to answer all questions about Big Red's launch of the "world’s first large-scale 4G LTE network". The carrier is expected to announce the big date for the roll-out of its LTE network and most sources agree that we are just several days away from the grand launch on December 5th.
Along with that, Verizon will showcase a couple of 4G LTE USB modems as well as the 4G SIM cards that arrived earlier in some Verizon stores. The modems are the LG VL600 thumbstick and the Pantech UML290. The latter has the looks of a Swiss army knife and even a dual-jointed USB port for your plugging convenience, but we are yet to see if the speeds the modem will match the expectations. And expectations are high with speeds advertised to be up to 10 times faster than what current 3G offers and coverage expected for 38 metro areas and 60 airports. The USB modems will go on sale in stores on December 5th. In the meantime, take a look at the pictures below and see the new gadgets for yourselves.
