On Sunday, a new entrant to the next-generation 4G wireless market emerged in Philadelphia.
Verizon Wireless announced in a press release that it has launched its Long Term Evolution network in the region, one of 38 major metropolitan launches. The service offers Verizon users average download speeds of 5 to 12Mbps and upload speeds of 2 to 5Mbps with compatible devices.
The anticipated launch is years in the making, and as we’ve noted many times before, it’s a crowded market.
Sprint, Clear and Comcast all offer similar high-speed 4G offerings on the Clearwire white-labeled WiMAX network. We reviewed Sprint’s service in May, which should give consumers a snapshot of service offered by the three carriers.
Clearwire launched its 4G network last October, as we reported.

Companies: CLEAR / Clearwire / Sprint / Verizon Wireless
