Has it been two years already since the birth of Verizon’s 4G LTE? I specifically remember being in Las Vegas at the Consumer Electronics Show, when some Verizon executives took the stage to announce a lineup of devices to take advantage of this baby network, available in only a handful of markets. Since then, 4G LTE has become a standard for many smartphone buyers, and no one in America offers as large of a market as Verizon. Not to toot their horn or anything, but it is currently available in more than 440 markets, servicing 11 million people.
As the years fly by, even Verizon’s CEO has mentioned that as their competitors catch up in the 4G LTE race, Big Red will already be looking to the future with 5G and 6G networks. Some exciting times for mobile.
What was your first experience with 4G LTE? Was it magical?
