Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) has added 4G LTE coverage for 33 new markets, and has expanded coverage for 32 existing markets, including some big ones. Verizon says it's on track to provide LTE to 400 markets by year's end, up from a current 337. By contrast, AT&T (T) currently offers LTE in just 47 markets. Sprint (S), which until now has been relying on Clearwire's WiMAX 4G network, just began providing LTE in 15 metro areas.

    And VZ and T will rebuild their network from scratch to catchup with S. VZ was first but they have deployed old LTE technology. S is LTE 10

    AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREEEEEEE!!!! Exactly, I have said it before and I will say it again. Why build a house without plumbing? One wake up one day and figure out that the smell coming from within the neighborhood is actually one's self!

     

    It easy to throw s**t together and then call it an LTE. Sooner or later VZ will have to invest more money in a system that actually works. Oh, it works now, but what about tomorrow.

     

    Oh, can this current VZ network do this...

    I think not. CLWR is a company that is doing it right! This is why it taking a little more time to do it right. They are not just throwing a couple of resisters and capacitors together and calling it an LTE!

     

    What a joke!
