Verizon Wireless' (VZ, VOD) 4G LTE rollout is "substantially complete," the carrier declares after covering its 500th market. Big Red says its LTE network now covers 298M people (95% of the U.S. population), which puts it soundly ahead of the 250M and 200M AT&T (T) and Sprint (S) respectively expect to cover by year's end. Verizon now plans to focus its LTE investments on adding capacity, much of it in the higher-frequency AWS band (better for urban areas), and adding new features such as voice-over-LTE support (due in 2014). The carrier adds it "will lead" in deploying the next-gen LTE-Advanced standard, but hasn't set a timeline.

    Inner cities and rural areas are of no interest to VZ, not profitable enough.

    My point was its a lie and not the truth. Not if it is profitable.
