Re: Better than Satellite

said by thegeek:

The only problem is getting the signal in a rural area. You'd think Verizon would wait to deploy this till there was actual coverage in rural areas.

Question: is this the same as FIOS or are they referring to LTE as in cell / smartphone wireless Internet? Because the article mentions "residential LTE". Just curious.

It is not in any way related to FIOS, although they may try to brand it that way. It's just a way to leverage the mobile broadband LTE towers and backhaul links they've already installed to serve fixed location residential locations that don't have other options.
