Verizon promises LTE in 147 markets by the end of 2011
What is even more exciting is that their press release says "at least 147 U.S. cities," so we'd like to think they're erring on the side of underestimation. David Small, CTO of Verizon Wireless, said that their LTE development "reflects the reality that the 4G LTE ecosystem is growing quickly." And that, dear readers, is the safest soundbite we've ever heard.
Beyond basic consumer applications, Small commends their 4G network for the ability to offer "advanced services to law enforcement, healthcare workers, educators, and other professionals." While we think that might be a bit dramatic, we also believe that ubiquitous 4G service will pose a serious threat to cable Internet companies.
So now that Verizon's LTE is coming to cities across the U.S., all we have to worry about is them throttling our data use. For a complete list of the 2011 LTE markets, visit the Verizon link below.
