    no they wont

    ATT is the closest and they're 1.5 years behind in terms of rolling out LTE.

    Start up 4G being the important term. It will take a few years to migrate to the new technology, so unless you live or spend large amounts of time in LA, Vegas, or one of the other test cities, there's no point in stressing too much about it.

    Your Droid's grandson will be able to enjoy 4G. That's how far out 4G is for everyone.

    4G really isn't that far out for USB modems and PCMCIA cards, but for smartphones, it may be a while, cuz there really isn't a need for crazy speen on a handheld...

    On September 20, 2007, Verizon Wireless announced that it plans a joint effort with the Vodafone Group to transition its networks to the 4G standard LTE. On December 9, 2008, Verizon Wireless announced that they intend to build and begin to roll out an LTE network by the end of 2009. Since then, Verizon Wireless has said that they will start their rollout by the end of 2010.

    hmmm

    so if the droid doesnt have the necessary hardware to run 4g than im pretty sure no other phone on verizon can what is verizon gonna do to fix it replace all the incapable phones for free cause that would be a real big problem when it comes and no phones work on it!
