    Rumor: Verizon Launching LTE Network on Nov. 15th; 4G Handsets on Black Friday

    tb
    According to BoyGeniusReport, Verizon will be launching its LTE (4G) network to 25 markets in the United States starting on November 15th, 2010. According to this anonymous source, these 25 markets will cover over 100 million people. Unfortunately, LTE-capable handsets will not be available until Black Friday, November 26th.

    And as you may have suspected, LTE data plans will be tiered. However, there will be no $10 premium charge for access to the 4G network.

    These dates do fit in line with rumors of the past that hinted toward an LTE release before the end of 2010. If these rumors hold true, this will be exciting for the mobile world. Verizon has stated that its LTE should average between 5-12Mbps downstream and 2-5Mbps upstream.

    Again this is simply a rumor. Take it for what it's worth.

    Would be nice to see the Droid Pro as one of those LTE handsets.
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Nope. Different antenna/frequency. Sorry.

    Funny how I was all excited about 4g for the last year or so but now not so much. The mention of tiered data plans on top of another 10 dollars means if I continue to use 3-6 gb a month then verizon is going to bend me over. This may be my last contract with verizon. If they were really smart they would continue to stay unlimited as I know of a few AT&T customers that are going to be leaving when their contract is up because of their tiered data caps. We will all end up on sprint with unlimited 4g cheaper than verizons and AT&T's capped 3g. Pisses me off.

    From the BGR article:

    LTE data plans will indeed be tiered, but Big Red won’t be pulling a Sprint and charing a $10 premium for access to its 4G network.
