MWC: Nortel LTE
Verizon is deploying LTE in advance of domestic rivals and international rollouts in 2010 and so was the best hope of getting LTE revenues in early. (See MWC 2009: Verizon Picks LTE Vendors.)
That's not to say that AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and T-Mobile International AG aren't working towards LTE in 2011. (See MWC 2009: T-Mobile Gets Real on LTE and MWC 2009: AT&T Plots LTE in 2011.)
It seems to me, however, that Nortel needs to start selling LTE gear as soon as possible. So, do they have some other deals we don't yet know about?
