Verizon Wireless today said it has successfully kicked off LTE-Advanced service using Band 48 spectrum, known as Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). This slice of 3.5 GHz spectrum has previously been reserved for government and military use. Using carrier aggregation, pairing its own AWS and 700 MHz spectrum with 50 MHz of the 3.5 GHz CBRS spectrum, and using advanced technologies such as 4x4 MIMO and 256 QAM, Verizon was able to achieve peak speeds of 790 Mbps. Verizon has been testing this technology in its Texas labs since last year. It was able to deploy the service with gear from Ericsson and Qualcomm. Verizon says this marks the commercial launch of its LTE-A service in Band 48. The initial market with access to Band 48 service is Boca Raton, Fla. Verizon says its expects to debut devices with support for Band 48 later this year. Verizon didn't say what markets might be next to see Band 48 service go live.
