Verizon Wireless LTE Plans Detailed During CTIA 2010; First LTE-based Device Debuts Next Year

March 25, 2010, By Atul Roach

We have been closely following Big Red’s development with its Long Term Evolution network improvement and the good news is that Verizon has now gone ahead and revealed more details about the LTE network at the ongoing CTIA 2010.

It is being anticipated that the high-speed network will eventually be available in 25 to 30 regions and the CTIA announcement has already detailed ten regions where the LTE build-up in under way.

The main regions include Boston, Seattle, Nevada, North Carolina, Minnesota, Georgia and Alabama. Big Red revealed that it is ahead of its schedule with reference to LTE devices and the first LTE-based device should be available by the middle of 2011.

The 4G network competitive war is heating up and things are getting interesting as small market players are also trying to influence the customers. MetroPCS also jumped in to the battle by announcing the SCH-r900 from Samsung, the first LTE enabled device.

Sprint is also ready with its WiMAX laden HTC Evo 4G, which makes it a very competitive sector. Amidst all this, Big Red is touted to be the fastest developing 4G carrier but, we still realize that even when 4G, WiMAX or LTE is up and running, none of the carriers will offer unlimited data plans right away.
