Verizon launching LTE network on November 15th? Black Friday brings new handsets?

I love it when bombs like this drop out of nowhere. Verizon is expected to begin rolls outs of their LTE 4G network in 25 markets beginning on November 15th, 2010. With those 25 markets, Verizon is expected to provide 4G access to as many as 100 million potential subscribers. The report goes on to say that though 4G handsets will not be available right away, Verizon is planning to release “a slew of new devices” that are capable of taking advantage of Verizon’s new LTE network on Black Friday, November 26th, 2010. The LTE pricing is expected to be tiered and not tied to an additional monthly charge like Sprint has for $10. What ‘tiered’ really means in terms of pricing is not readily clear, but you can expect to pay a premium for use of this new LTE 4G network I’m sure. By then, Sprint should have almost 200 million people covered in the United States with it’s WiMAX 4G technology and a plethora of phones behind them. We will have to wait and see who will win the Q4 2010/Q1 2011 battle for customers with new 4G handsets and pricing programs.
