Though Verizon (VZ) has an edge on AT&T (T) when it comes to 4G LTE coverage, AT&T might soon open a lead in download speeds. Research firm TBR says it believes AT&T will launch 4G services based on the LTE Advanced standard, which supports 100 Mbps+ speeds (in lab environments anyway), in 2H13, citing recent executive comments. Verizon has said it will support LTE Advanced, but hasn't provided a timetable. Clearwire's (CLWR) LTE network will support the standard from the start.
