Verizon Confirms VZ4G LTE Service to Launch in 38 Markets in 2010


At today's CTIA Press Conference, Verizon officially announced that they'll be launching their 4G LTE service (dubbed "VZ4G") in 38 markets by the end of 2010. They wouldn't comment directly on pricing, but to our surprise they stated that "there is a place for unlimited plans" as well as pay-per-use models (which is what recent rumors were indicating Verizon planned to use for their 4G service). We won't know until Verizon releases more information, but it sounds like there may be an unlimited option available at launch after all, which puts them on level ground with Sprint and CLEAR, who offer their 4G WiMAX service on an unlimited basis.
