    A recent tweet from V3RDICT gives us a heads up on Big Red's 4G campaign that will hopefully ignite the beginning of the 4G Phone Wars. I think this one liner sums it up best...

    Thoughts?

    Since when does verizon have 4G? And what's it really matter if there aren't any 4G phones yet? (besides 4G routers)

    Yeah... show me 4G in the Norfolk, VA area and then I'll get excited. Oh, and give me a phone that can use it.

    Lol they always go after At&t. To be honest when you look at the commercials of verizon making fun of att 3g. Att responds saying they have coverage everywhere but doesn't clarify how much 3g. ATT is bsing there map now because its changed and doesn't tell you there coverages like Verizon does. I don't think At&t can really reply to this but it is amusing.

    I was at the IACP Conference in Orlando a few weeks ago and spoke with the Verizon reps there that has information about the 4G network. What is going to happen is Verizon will begin to install 4G antennas basically before releasing the phones. The first 4G phone is currently rumored to appear around the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2011.

    That was pretty much the main gist of it which I believe is smarter because they won't run into issues like those with Sprint.

    Since when is VZ fastest ? It barely got 60 kbps for the last couple of months , tested that in 3 different states and the speed is still decreasing . Compared to that Sprint 3G is getting 1.5-2 Mbps 3G and 4-5 Mbps 4G . VZ data speeds are 100 slower than that .

    Vz will be almost ten times faster when the 4g is released on all carriers in the US. Check it out. The LTE is alot faster than sprint, att or t mobile, there was a write up on this forum a few weeks back. Besides, now it may not be faster but it works, what is the use having all that speed and cant make a call. just my .02. dancedroid

    With all the traveling I do for work, I agree with snoop 100%!!! I don't care much for the speeds (for now), but as long as I can call contacts and my wife, I'm golden! Also, with the way I use my Droid, Verizon's network is more than enough. :icon_ banana:

    Let me know when LTE hits Raleigh, NC and then I'll care...

    Any clues on when it will? My upgrade won't hit until February or March, and if it looks like LTE will be coming soon thereafter, I'll gladly wait to upgrade.

    It's like Verizon and AT&T are second graders sticking their tongues out at each other.

    You dealt with an uninformed rep as CEO Ivan Seidenberg says first phone in February (AKA Q1).

    Verizon hints at LTE pricing based on data speed - FierceWireless

    In the end AT&T, T-Mo, VZW or Sprint by standard do not and will not have true 4G. I dumped VZW almost a month a go for T-Mobile. I don't need the speeds but my G2 pulls near 10MB Down and 2MB Up at times. Typically it is 5MB Down and 2MB both 2X plus than my Droid and Droid X. I don't think LTE is going to take off like they want because of the cost. Who knows they might make it reasonable
