Apparently, the technology editors for both PC World and Popular Science have been very impressed with Verizon's 4G LTE network technology. Popular Science gave the Verizon service their, “Fastest 4G Network Yet” award in the gadgets category of the 2011 Best of What’s New Awards. Also, PC World ranked Verizon's 4G LTE network as the No. 1 in PC World’s 100 Best Products of 2011. Here's a quote from Verizon's presser,Both of those awards seem pretty impressive. What do you guys think... does Verizon deserve these awards for their 4G LTE service?David Small, chief technical officer of Verizon Wireless, noted, “Each of these awards is a true honor and speaks to the sustainable investment we’ve made in our 4G LTE network. Popular Science and PC World are validating our strategy of building and selling services on an actual 4G LTE network over the year, rather than simply talking about what we may offer down the road.”
Tim Moynihan, senior editor of PC World, said, “Verizon's LTE service smoked the competition in our 4G speed tests, with download times almost three times as fast as most competitors’."
