Verizon Wireless Completes First LTE Data Call
Today Verizon Wireless announced that it has successfully completed its first data calls using Long Term Evolution 4G networking technology. The data trials took place in Boston and Seattle, the two markets Verizon has chosen to test its LTE platform. Verizon made the calls over its 700MHz spectrum using networking equipment from Starent and Nokia Siemens, base station equipment from Alcatel-Lucent and Ericsson, and devices from LG and Samsung. The calls included streaming video, file uploads, and even voice over VoIP. Both Boston and Seattle have 10 LTE cell sites up and active. Verizon will continue to test LTE technology in these markets and plans to cover 30 markets and 100 million people by 2010.
anyone else find it wierd that att at its worst point in service history is strangly quiet about upgrading the network to 4G. There has to be a reason.
AT&T hasn't even got their 3G work...
Give me 4G!!!
Actually, I'm thinking about moving to richmond. I wonder how AT&T does down there.
