Verizon to deploy LTE by late 2009

Verizon Wireless will begin deploying Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless broadband technology by the end of 2009, accelerating their rollout timetable, a top executive said Tuesday.

Dick Lynch, executive vice president and CTO of Verizon Communications, said the carrier expected to deploy LTE sooner than expected. "We expect that LTE will actually be in service somewhere here in the U.S. probably this time next year," Lynch said, in a speech at Cisco Systems' C-Scape conference in San Jose, Calif. Previous estimates for Verizon's LTE deployment had been for around 2010, with widescale commercial rollout sometime in 2011.
