Verizon Begins LTE User Trials In Five Cities
Ahead of 25-30 market launch later this year
Verizon has completed technical trials for LTE wireless broadband connectivity, and is now starting LTE user trials in five un-named cities
according to the company. The 5-12 Mbps downstream service will arrive in somewhere between 25-30 markets later this year. "Verizon Wireless is tapping select users in select cities for the friendly user trials, but is not disclosing details about these users," says the company. Again, actual pricing for the service hasn't been specified, but Verizon's made it more than clear to everyone
that they're interested in some form of usage-based billing and will likely be discarding the unlimited consumption model.
