    Verizon 4G rollout reaffirmed, thanks to leaked docs



    A few days ago we reported that on July 18th, Verizon would be updating its systems in preparation for its 4G launch. And we are excited to report that today these updates did indeed take place, according to internal screenshots (via Android Central). As of today, all Verizon systems will have the capability to input LTE handsets. The only question left is, when?

    Also, Engadget received an independent confirmation of their own, accompanied by a leaked internal "reference guide", showcasing the highlights of Verizon's upcoming 4G network (LTE technology). As we already know, Verizon expects to begin its roll-out of LTE by the end of 2010. And according to the leaked document, over 100 million subscribers will be covered by that date. Also, 4G subscribers should expect 5-12Mbps downstream and 2-5Mbps upload speeds. And most interestingly, Verizon expects its 4G network to have a latency as low as 30ms. In comparison, according to Verizon, its 3G-network latency is approx. four times that (or 120ms for the arithmetically challenged). What does this mean for the average end-user? Much quicker loading times for internet-based applications, that's what!



    This is certainly great news, as Verizon seems to be sticking well to self-imposed deadlines, and as such, we shouldn't expect any delay for its 4G roll-out. However, don't expect to see much of a roll-out until November; as rumored a couple weeks back, Verizon may be saving its 4G unveiling to Black Friday.

    And how does Verizon's LTE network stack up against its competitors? Take a quick look-see:


    According to this (certainly unbiased report), Verizon will be sporting the fastest overall 4G service, and unlike its current CDMA 3G system, will meet the global roaming "voice standards." I wonder what T-Mobile and its purported 21Mbps downstream HSPA+ network have to say about this.

    Thanks, Shadez

    See?? This is why the extra $39.99 I paid for my Droid X so I could only have a 1 year contract is making me very happy. Next year by mid April I should be able to upgrade phone again...
    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

    So does this mean that the new devices will use sim cards? And does this mean no more burn phones when you travel abroad?

    I would like to see how the latency can get up to 30ms. Thats not bad at all for a wireless device.
