Verizon Wireless Targets LTE Build Out for 2009
Dec 9, 2008, 9:53 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Verizon Communications executive vice president and chief technology officer Dick Lynch said that the company is planning to begin deploying its long term evolution (LTE) next-generation network as early as 2009. He said, "We expect that LTE will actually be in service somewhere here in the U.S. probably this time next year." Verizon Wireless will have to transition subscribers from its CDMA network to the newer LTE network, which will likely take years. In addition to the LTE network transition, Lynch also said that it will roll-out femtocells — with Wi-Fi on board, too — to boost in-building coverage. The combination of LTE, with femotcells and Wi-Fi will enable Verizon Wireless to deliver broadband to a wide range of devices.

Will not happed by 2009.
That is t-carrier service. Currently nationwide t-carrier service is maxed out. LTE is a broad band data service which will require multiple t1s delivered to the cell site. However there is not the current infrastructure to support it. Miles of cable will have to be laid permits will have to be obtained. Then you also have to factor in that ATT will also be building LTE at the same time. Simply put LTE will be deployed at an agonizing snails pace as both ATT and Verizon wait on Local Exchange carriers to install data back hall. This is the reason wimax to...
I don't get where you get the idea they say they will have service ready by 2009.
You know little of the VZW network infastructure.
In several areas, Verizon OWNS the majority of the backhaul network (microwave & fiber) vs. leasing it from another carrier. In those areas, VZW controls how much capcacity i...
So much for wimax being light years ahead

Transition from CDMA?
It was my understanding that a "transition" won't be necessary. I've asked about this before with someone who appears to be very familiar with the intended implementation of LTE for Verizon Wireless, and I'm pretty s
FIOS to support LTE and Femtocell?
Call me naive and I am new to understanding Wireless phone technology but it does make sense that why Verizon has been pushing FIOS deployment every where in the US. So they can support this technology LTE and Femtocell on all markets. From what I have been reading pn this link. And me as a subscriber/consumer I have heard on several occasions from Verizon and Verizon Wireless that there intentions is to bring the to companies closer together or into one business offering several services. Plus if you have FIOS like I do it is just damn good!!!!!! Very Happy
