Mobile phone carrier Verizon Wireless is preparing to announce specific details on its LTE roll-out as soon as tomorrow, December 1st, via a teleconference that would take place on 12:00 noon EST.
The wireless carrier names itself the 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE)
network leader, as it aims at deploying the first large-scale 4G LTE network in the world.
“Verizon Wireless will hold a news conference featuring Tony Melone, senior vice president and chief technical officer of Verizon Wireless, who will detail the company’s major 4G LTE network launch,” the company announced officially.
This move does not come as a surprise, that's for sure, as the company already unveiled plans to make its LTE network available
for users before the end of the ongoing year.
“Verizon Wireless will launch the world’s largest 4G LTE network in 38 major metropolitan areas, covering more than 110 million Americans, before the end of the year,” the carrier announced.
In addition to making the new network available in a large number of markets at the same time, the wireless carrier
should also bring 4G LTE in more than 60 commercial airports coast to coast.
At the same time, the company announced that it plans on covering the entire country with LTE by 2013. “The company’s 4G LTE network ultimately will connect a full range of electronics devices and machines to each other,” Verizon notes.
We already had the chance to take a closer look at the list of markets where Verizon would make its 4G network
available. Those who might have missed our previous post on this should head here to learn more on the matter.
“We are driven by the vision to provide ubiquitous wireless broadband connectivity and mobility to rural and urban Americans alike,” Lowell McAdam, president and chief operating officer of Verizon, stated in early October.
“With our initial 4G
LTE launch, we will immediately reach more than one-third of all Americans where they live, right from the start. And, we will quickly introduce 4G LTE throughout the Verizon coverage area.”
