Verizon to deploy its LTE network in two U.S. cities this year
As technologies move forward, keeping up to date with the latest trends gets harder and harder. Well, it looks like Verizon is not having such problems. Two days ago we have informed you that Verizon’s CTO, Dick Lynch, has spoken of the vendors that will participate in the establishment of the first 4G network in the United States. Later, it was said that the company plans to begin the deployment of its LTE network in two U.S. cities late this year and then expand it to 25 to 30 markets by 2010 with the commercial launch following close after. According to Lynch, during the network trials, maximum speeds of up to 80Mbps have been achieved. However, the official said that the average speeds will be known as soon as the network is deployed, which, as he specifies, will happen at the end of December.
