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
