    VERIZON talking smack!!!

    all i have been hearing from the desks of Verizon and verizon message board is verizon is a leader ,,number 1 in the new LTE 4G platform. The fact is VZ is using CDMA...not GSM...it will be harder to deploy or build out a LTE GSM 4G platform from a CDMA...didnt Cingular have this problem to were we are at know with 3 G...HELLO.Cingular was working off old technology.before it deployed to 3G..so if anyone is in the front its. AT&T...they already have GSM...VERIZon people are so stuck on putting T down...I am so sick of hearing Verizon customers complain about they want a Iphone,,but dont want to switch to ATT...because T is bad in this,,bad in that,,bad in this...PLEASE!!I have been a long time cingular customer which T bought out and T has upgraded so far,,and I have had no problems with Ts coverage...Verizon customers are the crying babies..There mad because apple didnt pick Verizon...I wonder why!!!!

    • Well, I have to admit that VZ is in fact leading the way in 4G (LTE) technology. The reason is they HAVE to. Their current network, while better coverage in some parts of the country (not all) is not as fast as AT&Ts current network (see other links to articles in this msg board). So they had to upgrade and there was no evolution path with CDMA, so they have to go to LTE. But that means changing their entire network, physically! That will take time. By the way Sprint Nextel who is also CDMA will also have to change to LTE and they dont have the capex so they are toast. I give Sprint no more than 5 more years of life.
      For AT&T the path to LTE will be a lot smoother because it will be a software upgrade.
