Verizon to Deploy LTE 'As Close to All-At-Once As Possible'

Speaking in an interview, Verizon Wireless' senior vice president and chief technology officer Tony Malone indicated that the company is going to launch its Long Term Evolution 4G network across as much of the U.S. at the same time as possible. Malone said, "We want to give our customers a significant footprint," rather than offer trial markets spread here and there. Malone said the LTE network will overlay -- not replace -- its CDMA-based 3G network, and noted that it will be able to use the same towers and equipment to power both networks. Malone said there will not be a hard switchover from one network to another, instead, he said, "You will need new devices to take [full] advantage of LTE. But there won't be a need to force migrate." Verizon will serve both its CDMA and LTE customers concurrently. Verizon has said that it will launch 25 to 30 LTE markets during 2010, covering some 100 million POPs.
