Soon, Verizon’s smartphone lineup will be composed only of those with 4G LTE connectivity. The network made known that the 4G connection will be a must for any smartphone that they will be offering in the future.
Major smartphone manufacturers have been coming out with new models left and right and 4G LTE appears to be a staple among their list of new features, so conforming with the network’s requirement isn’t much of a problem.
Aside from reiterating the 4G requirement for smartphones, Verizon Wireless’ CTO, David Small, also said that the company is actively pushing its network to many areas. Verizon is looking to have up to 400 areas covered by 4G LTE by the end of the year from the 200-plus currently in service.
