Verizon wireless is the United Stateâ€™s current 3G king with the largest 3G map, well it seems that 3 might become a 4 very soon. BGR just yesterday announced that a webcast starting 11 AM ET on Wednesday, January 23, 2010 which is today will have all this info. The webcast will go over the new 4G specification for devices that will run on Verizonâ€™s 700MHZ LTE network.
The Updates will include information on address network access, SMS requirements, data retry tests, lab and signaling conformance, and details on the device approval and introduction process.
The current speed the LTE network is aimed at is about 12Mbps,and they areÂ planning to launch LTE in 25 to 30 markets in 2010 and maybe even take over their current 3G map with LTE by the end of 2013. We’re sure there will be a map for that when Verizonâ€™s 4G finally launches.
This will make Verizon the largest 4G network in 2010 because Sprint has yet to roll their network into a wider market. They are taking a long time to get a 4G device on there network out, but they have been working on some Windows Mobile Wimax devices which should be coming soon. This news is good news which should mean that we might start to see some 4G LTE and Wimax Windows Mobile devices soon.
