Verizon Wireless should be able to offer international roaming for customers of its LTE 4G network by 2014. Verizon Wireless Chief Technology Officer Nicola Palmer said that Verizon expects to sign its fist LTE roaming agreement later this year, according to Reuters. Palmer noted that the roaming agreement will likely extend only to data over LTE for devices such as smartphones and tablets. Verizon rep Thomas Pica said Verizon customers will be able to roam in several countries, including Canada, by next year. Neither Palmer mor Pica named the company that would be named first, though it is worth noting that Vodafone owns a 40% stake in Verizon Wireless. Such roaming agreements have been slow to come about due to the varied stages of LTE network deployments around the world, in addition to the varied spectrum used for those networks. Only recently have companies such as Qualcomm and Intel announced new RF transceivers that can support dozens of LTE bands in a single device.
