Verizon announces plans for their share of the 700MHz spectrum
Verizon was one of the big spenders/winners in the recent FCC auction for the 700MHz.
AT&T, another one of the auction winners, has already announced what their plans are. What does Verizon plan to do?
Looks like roughly the same thing that AT&T will be doing–using it to provide a high-speed 4G LTE network.
Here’s their timetable at this point:
- Finalize standards
- Begin field trials
- Begin network preparations
- Advanced device trails
- Select vendors
- Begin network deployment
- Launch network
- Rapid coverage acceleration to full deployment
