Verizon Wireless Launches LTE on December 5th

Verizon Wireless will activate commercial services over its LTE network on Sunday, December 5, 2010. The network is initially launching in 38 major metropolitan areas and in more than 60 commercial airports coast to coast -- at both airports within the launch areas plus airports in other key cities. Street level coverage area maps will be available online on Dec. 5.


Verizon Wireless' primary 4G LTE network vendors, Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent, are providing the underlying infrastructure for the 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network.


Verizon Wireless customers can choose from two 4G LTE Mobile Broadband data plans: $50 monthly access for 5 GB monthly allowance or $80 monthly access for 10 GB monthly allowance, both with $10/GB overage. For laptop connectivity, two 4G LTE USB modems will be initially available: the LG VL600 is available at launch and the Pantech UML290 will be available soon, each $99.99 after $50 rebate with a new two-year agreement. Both USB modems provide backward-compatibility with Verizon Wireless' 3G network. If laptop users travel outside of a 4G LTE coverage area, they will automatically stay connected on the company's 3G network. The first LTE handset are expected by mid-year 2011.


Average LTE data rates in real-world, loaded network environments to be 5 to 12 Mbps on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink.
