Verizon claims 4G trials going well

Should be ready for launch in 2010

Sprint and their partner, Clearwire, had better pick up the pace on their WiMAX deployments, as Verizon announced today that the initial development and trials of the 4G LTE technology that the company has committed to using are going well and they expect to be able to roll it out in 2010.

Verizon is using the 700MHz spectrum that the company acquired in auction last year and will deliver their 4G LTE technology that should be able to deliver speeds in the range of 50 to 60 Mbps. The best news about this is that Verizon expects that when it is launched that it will be offering significant coverage to all of the company’s key markets right off the bat.

Clearwire with partner Sprint continues to be somewhat stalled on their current WiMAX roll outs. The WiMAX technology also seems to be lacking in adoption by manufacturers that seem to be leaning toward 4G LTE, which continues to appear that it will have better support worldwide than WiMAX.
