At some point even the lowest-end feature phone will be LTE. If you're Verizon, it's in your interest to make that happen sooner rather than later.

If it means they can shut down a costly old CDMA network in 2019 instead of 2021, it would be worth it for Verizon to subsidize (and I mean really take on the cost themselves) of LTE-only basic phones now, if if they're slightly more expensive than basic CDMA-only phones for now.
