Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) says it will offer 4G LTE services in 400 markets by Oct. 18, well ahead of the carrier's year-end target. AT&T (T), by contrast, promises to have LTE in just 100 markets by year's end. Time will tell whether Verizon's 4G coverage edge, which it has heavily promoted, will help it gain a disproportionate share of iPhone 5 sales, as some have predicted.
