LTE network set to get iPhone addition
Following months of speculation and endless rumours, American mobile network provider Verizon is expected to officially unveil an exclusive 4G version of the Apple iPhone 4 tomorrow, January 11th.
Set to host a special press event in New York, Verizon is expected to announce it is to host the dominant Apple blower ending the US exclusivity AT&T has held over the iPhone since the original model launched back in 2007.
Whilst many American iPhone fans will be pleased to be offered a choice of networks on which to host their Apple handsets, it is believed that the Verizon edition of the latest and fourth iPhone offering will utilise the company’s 4G network capabilities. With around six months until the expected arrival of the iPhone 5 it is yet to be seen how many consumers will jump into a long-term contract with Verizon for the mooted 4G touting iPhone 4.
The LTE network utilising iPhone is expected to enter the realms of reality tomorrow when the Verizon press conference kicks off at 11am EST (4pm GMT). Don’t expect to see the 4G iPhone landing in the UK anytime soon, however, there is currently no UK support for the high-speed LTE networks being rolled out across the US.
