Last time we’ve heard about Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the big V said that it would be commercially launched sometime in 2010.
As for a nationwide LTE network, Verizon intends to complete it in late 2013 – early 2014.
However, pre-commercial LTE deployments will start by the end of 2009 – both on the west coast and on the east coast.
Verizon mentioned that its LTE devices will feature swappable SIM cards. Also, they will have to meet specific certification requirements.
It’s said that the average data speeds provided by Verizon’s LTE network will be between 8 and 12Mbps, while peaks could reach 60Mbps.
