Verizon Wireless Plans Mass LTE Deployment

Source: InformationWeek
In an interview, Verizon Wireless CTO Tony Melone lays out the carrier's ambitious Long-Term Evolution plans.

Verizon Wireless is planning to light up its Long-Term Evolution (LTE) nationwide network next year in one fell swoop rather than deploying it in a traditional market-by-market rollout, according to Tony Melone, the firm's senior vice president and chief technology officer.

The rollout "will be as close to all-at-once as possible," Melone said in an interview in which he noted that the firm is right on schedule with its LTE wireless technology. "We want to give our customers a significant footprint," and won't "tease," them he said, with trial deployments.
