Vevrizon Wireless has confirmed that it will upgrade to Long Term Evolution-Advanced after it finishes deploying LTE across the country. Speaking at a recent conference, Praveen Atreya, director of network technology, told Light Reading that it is far too early in the process to discuss potential speeds and features of LTE-Advanced, but "Verizon is definitely going that route in the long term." A different Verizon representative also noted that the company is still testing voice-over-LTE. Larry Rau, director of technology applications ecosystem for Verizon, said that VoLTE is being trialled in two of its pre-commercial LTE markets and won't be ready until 2012 at the earliest. The company wants to be be sure the voice experience over its LTE data network is superior to that of its CDMA voice network.

Verizon Data Speeds

If your on Verizon's network:Get over your self. Your downloading speeds are horrible. Your LTE Network isn't even work advertising. I almost feel bad for the customers who have service with them. I'm on Att and my service is awesome:No dropped calls:no data issues. I recently tested my android phone with a relatives and their downloads took all night while I was playing the app all night.

Which smartphone on Verizon were you comparing your ATT smartphone to? It would have been good to mention that in your post.

I have the Samsung Droid Charge, I've had it for almost 4 full months. Just now I did 3 speed tests, and got 9, 9, and 11mb...

Voice quality

They say they want to make sure the voice quality is better than on CDMA. That should be easy, CDMA sounds awful to me. I went from T-Mobile to Verizon a few years ago, and while coverage is better, voice quality has always seemed muffled and watery. With T-Mo, it was much clearer (though the coverage wasn't what I needed). Maybe LTE will be the answer.
