Verizon 4G LTE Launching on December 5th or 6th

Verizon notified media this morning that they will hold a press event tomorrow to discuss the rollout and launching of their 4G LTE service before the end of 2010.  We were tipped to a December 6th go live date originally, but now have further confirmation from additional sources that it’ll be either on the 5th or the 6th.  And as you’ll see from the document above, 4G LTE modems will start going on-sale in stores on the 5th. Now if only that page could have also displayed the Incredible HD, life would have been really good.

Cheers money!

    According to a friend who works for Verizon, their first 4G phone will be the BB Storm 3 that will also be LTE capable (and that phone will be available in December for the Christmas shoppers). They'll also put out a 4G sim card for Androids, but they'll concentrate on Storm 3 as their first 4G phone.

    Time will tell if he's right.

      That's what I was thinking all these global phone would just put in 4g sim card .

    Will it cost any more for lte if we are on Verizons $69 unlimited plan?

    Here is a good question to ask….with all the new phones coming out and the life cycle being shorter maybe consider shorter upgrade times!!! Or…contracts are only valid for the lifecycle verizon carries the phone and accessories. Who wants a dead phone and have 2 yrs. Left till update. Um
    Mmm

      You can spend $60 more up front and do a 1yr.

  • Noob question: How does the modem work? A brief rundown will do. {{-_-}}

    • It just plugs into a USB port on your computer and uses 3G (or in this case, 4G) signal as an internet connection.

      Those look like USB-only devices, but I'm sure the “mifi” style will come out soon after. Those don't have to be plugged in, they create a Wifi network.

      Either one requires a separate data plan through VZW. (Unlimited isn't an option, currently)

  • Come on, I wanna see what 4G phone we have in store!!!

  • Rousellbrandon

    Where's. The prices? I think that's most important cause 3g and wife at home is plenty fast for my D2g. Which I love after leaving og droid for dinc I feel right at home on my D2g.

    • Rousellbrandon

      Wifi. Not wife.

      • Andrew Hewitt

        Maybe he actually meant wife.. O.o

  • Is it going to be faster than Wifi?

    • Rousellbrandon

      Would depend on your Wifi speed.

  • If anyone knows of any official road map for cities (saw a leaked on a while ago), that would be great if you could link me to it.
