BACKGROUND: On Wednesday, Verizon Wireless hosted a one-hour discussion about the status of its 4G LTE wireless network build-out and efforts to build a 4G ecosystem of developers to fuel b2b devices, apps and consumer products.
Verizon Wireless expects to commercially launch its 4G LTE network in up to 30 markets in 2010, covering 100 million people. An equally aggressive growth plan in subsequent years will result in full nationwide coverage by 2013.
