Verizon Wireless is promising that it will match its 3G footprint with faster Long-Term Evolution (LTE) in 2013, which it says is on track to cover about 100 million people when the proto-4G technology is launched later this year.
Talking on a developer's Webcast Tuesday morning, Tony Lewis, Verizon's VP of Open Development, gave a quick update on the readiness of the network. "Everything is on track for commercial launch," Lewis said. (See LTE Watch: Verizon Goes Live in Q4.)
Lewis says it will launch with 25 to 30 markets, which will cover about 100 million people, by the end of this year. This number will rise to 200 million in 2012.
