Could care less
I don't have a smart phone. In fact, I'm still on 1x, what does it matter? I use my phone as a phone, nothing more. LTE can take as long as it takes to be implemented, I am in no rush.
then lte is not for you. You don't have a need for the technology but for the people that use the internet on their phones this enhancement is a good thing.
Now if they upped the quality of your voice quality on the verizon network theoretically i bet you could be happy too. (spare me the technicals this is just a simple comparison).
there is a market for mobile voice and mobile data services. I am happy to see the mobile data network become more robust.
