Verizon notches 500th LTE market, declares initial rollout done

The carrier plans to keep growing capacity with other spectrum bands and small cells, but will keep 3G through at least 2019

By , IDG News Service |  

The U.S. retains its lead in LTE, according to analyst Roger Entner of Recon Analytics. Though most carriers around the world have committed to LTE and it's heavily deployed in some countries, such as South Korea, in most areas it's just getting off the ground, he said. For example, spectrum regulations in some European countries have kept LTE rollouts slow, Entner said. "The U.S. is continuing to be far, far ahead of everybody else," he said.
