Can you believe it? One year ago, Verizon Wireless launched 4G LTE. And now, it feels like we've had it forever, and "normal" 3G speeds just feel sluggish in comparison. The wireless carrier is today celebrating the 1-year anniversary of their newest wireless protocol, and what started in 38 markets has now grown to nearly 200, and it's spreading like wildfire. Anyone who has used it swears by it, and it's truly a game-changer in the world of wireless technology.



In addition, VZW used the celebrating to announce that two new Xyboard Droid tablets would soon be arriving from Motorola, both with Android 4.0. Furthermore, another one from Samsung is en route. It's good to have that fourth gee, you know?

Real 4G? Yup. I think other carriers may have claimed 4G first though.

Sprint claimed 4G first using WiMax technology but Verizon was the first to market with LTE technology. I have to say being a Sprint customer the WiMax is not very good but it is unlimited data... I am sure we will see them converting to LTE at some point in the near future.

Kudos to big red at pushing their LTE rollout right along.

Too bad you cannot get unlimited data now through big red. I'm leaving them when my contact is up
