Verizon To Upgrade 60 Airports To 4g Network
Verizon has been working to implement the new network in 38 major cities. Again, the plans are to have these 38 cities online with 4G by the end of the year. Most of the airports scheduled to have the new network, 4G Long Term Evolution, are close to these major cities. The exceptions are Honolulu International and Salt Lake City International, which will have their own coverage.
Verizon Wireless is courting the business traveler. With business travelers using laptops and Smartphones while waiting to board their flights, Verizon is making an attempt to attract them with faster service. There is a disadvantage to this however. Verizon,along with competing cell phone service providers, are implementing tiered pricing plans for heavy data users. Many cost-conscious travelers would still be able to use the WiFi offered at most airports, which is usually free or for a small monthly fee. For example Boingo charges subscribers $7.95 a month for Wi-Fi connections, and they offer daily and even hourly rates as well. Boingo is available at 685 airports worldwide. I think Verizon will have a tougher time charger higher rates with cheap competition like that.
Verizon plans to install enhancements at the airports. Verizon spokesman Jeffrey Nelson says, Airport buildings are built differently, with plenty of underground space. Many require in-building systems. Perhaps this tends to cause more home versions of cell signal boosters for those people who live in buildings with quite similar hassles. I am not sure cell boosters would help in the rural areas where coverage is spotty, but since technology is always moving forward, we can hope.
Is 4G really necessary? I have a Droid X with only 3G service. It is sometimes still much faster than my DSL at home. Of course I am not streaming video most of the time, and the Droid X still doesn’t have Adobe Flash 10 yet. Once Verizon has the 4G network up, it will still be a long time before it reaches out to touch those of us in the rural areas. This is the price I pay for living in the foothills of the Sierras. We have only had DSL in many areas of our county for about 4 years. In fact, some areas of our county still only have dial-up service. (Time to move I say!) But realistically, using a Verizon broadband air card is doable, although expensive. Verizon charges about $65 for the service. Perhaps though with the broadband air card, 4G will make it faster. Now theres a reason to push for 4G!
Verizon Planning To Launch Fast 4g Wireless In 38 U.S. Cities
The target consumers for these 4G services are initially the business users and those who are on-the-go. As reported by Verizon, the Smartphones and Tablet computers will be able to take advantage of this fast service beginning from next year.
At CTIA conference in San Francisco, Verizons chief Technology officer said in an interview that the move from the previously existing 3G network to the new and the latest 4G network is just like building a highway with a lot of lanes in it. The more capacity the company gives in an unwired environment, the more is the effort involved in it. So,it appears that the company is finally aiming to cover the complete country with its fast speed network.
Verizon Wireless is a joint venture of two companies namely Verizon Communication Inc. of New York City and Britain Vodafone Group Plc.
