Verizon Releases LTE Plans

Posted by Kallan Dahn Friday, October 8, 2010

Verizon Wireless has finally unleashed their 4G LTE plans upon the
United States. President and COO Lowel, McAdams announced the LTE
network will support an average data rate of 5-12 Megabits per second
with a network latency of 30 milliseconds. Verizon had already announced
that they would release 35 metro markets in the US with the initial roll
out, and have surpassed that mark. Verizon has announced a list of 38
markets, and 60 commercial airports. (See list below) Despite what At&t
has eluded to in previous weeks, LTE devices will begin to arrive at
Verizon as soon as the beginning of the year however, specific devices
have not been mentioned. McAdams did note that the gamut would include
handsets, USB modems, and tablets. Verizon is dedicated to taking their
network away from the classic walled garden approach that has dominated
the cellular industry, and will open up their resources to third party
developers. Verizon recognizes the importance of the 4G experience being
driven by forces from outside the company, and has already begun work
with companies like Google and Skype to create the "building blocks of
the future". Further, Verizon will also be opening the network as a
shared resource to rural operators. Agreements are in place with 5 such
operators, and underway with more than 200 others. The company president
refused to comment on the up coming availability of the iPhone for
Verizon, but noted that a device like that could benefit from the data
speeds that will be available with LTE. Based on this statement, with
little else known about the elusive device, the new Verizon iPhone may
well be an LTE version of the device. In addition to the 38 other
markets and 60 airports, Verizon has been working with Purdue University
to create a wireless campus utilizing the 4G technology.
