Verizon to complete 4G LTE rollout by Q2 2013

Verizon has announced that it plans to complete its 4G LTE network rollout by the Q2 2013.
This is great news for customers, as the carrier had initially noted that the rollout would be completed by the end of 2013.

Even more notably, Verizon added that the 4G network will match its nationwide 3G CDMA coverage, giving all current 3G customers access to the faster network. Communications CFO Fran Shammo says the network will cover 260 million residents by the end of this year, with the rest of the population being covered by June.

Rival AT&T says its 4G LTE network will cover 300 million competitors by the end of 2014, giving Verizon an obvious time advantage.

Additionally, Shammo says the company plans to acquire more spectrum, helping the rollout and improving stability.

Who cares!

Still the most expensive and shadiest company there is.
