Verizon clarified its 4G LTE network plans in a conference call this week. Lowell McAdam, Verizon CEO, said the company would launch the network commercially in 20 to 30 markets during the second half of 2010. McAdam added that the network would be fully rolled out nationwide by late 2013 or early 2014, reports Gearlog. A limited group of testers will be granted access to the 4G network this year and the company is planning two pre-commercial releases before the end of the year.
In addition, McAdam shared that Verizon's LTE devices will have swappable SIM cards and will be subject to certification requirements, according to Unwired View.
