Verizon plans to wrap 4G LTE rollout in mid-2013

Verizon anticipates that it will blanket the nation with 4G LTE coverage by the middle of next year, roughly six months faster than initially expected. Speaking at a media/telecom conference today, CFO Frank Shammo advised that Verizon’s 4G network will closely mirror their 3G network within the next 6-8 months.

    I bet 3013 will come and I’ll still be waiting for my ICS update from Verizon

    Only androidguys would mix up “2013” and “3013”.

    Zero proofreading done on this site.

    And then fix it… and then FORGET to fix the link itself anyway:

    It just gets worse and worse.
