    OH-no! Watch out AT&T: Verizonís new LTE network monster stirs in NYC

    Verizonís double-wide LTE network has made its first appearance in New York ó spotted by a GigaOM reader. Clocking in at 80 Mbps, the network is already speedy, but it likely will be even faster when it officially launches.
    AT&Tís LTE service has been beating Verizonís 4G network soundly in performance tests ó as any Ma Bell marketing exec will tell you if given half a chance ó but the days are numbered in which AT&T can claim the title of countryís fastest network. Since the past spring Verizon Wireless has been planning a new LTE rollout that would put AT&T or any other U.S. carrierís network speeds to shame. And that network has quietly popped up in New York City.
    The new LTE signals are registering on smartphones that support 4G in that band, such as those working on T-Mobileís networks, and Milanovic was able to force his Verizon iPhone 5s to connect to it.

    I'm more impressed with the latency. Is AT&T doing anything to improve that? It's at 60-70ms, when it could be in the 25-40ms range.

    Maybe this should be merged into the VZW discussion because we're talking about VZW's efforts in NYC?

    By the way I've predicted this a while back.

    I think VZW deploying AWS spectrum is a good thing. Now AT&T can hit the accelerator on carrier aggregation, since there aren't a whole lot of places they can do 20x20.

    2 10x10mhz configuration would be better overall imo. Mainly better coverage areas as carriers don't have the issue of spectrum reuse.

    How different is the coverage of 10x10 vs 20x20? Marginal, I'd guess.

    Too bad Verizon waited so long to do this. Their LTE network is a travesty in many parts of NYC.

    Am I on the vzw forum here, I get confused. Really I'm interested that both carriers continue to improve. Good for everyone. JMO, but it't not the indicated date speeds that frustrates me with vzw, but the general operating performance. And I'm basing my opinion on streaming continuity and general internet usage, ie google search, etc. Vzw seems to take longer to do what my att handsets for the most part, perform a lot quicker. This may just be my location, equipment, etc, dunno? I'm just using what works best for me.

    Well yay. You don't have to complain about Verizons pathetic speeds anymore, unless you are using say a Galaxy Nexus or another device with an old horrid radio like the original Maxx. Then you are screwed from the start.

    Some people don't have the luxury of changing out devices mid-contract. If VZW would have enabled AWS LTE on devices from the beginning of their LTE network supporting smartphones, then users wouldn't be in this quandary.

    If AT&T enabled AWS on its phones when they launched LTE, why couldn't VZW do the same? It's great some of the VZW devices will be able to connect to the nascent AWS LTE network run by Verizon. I just wish VZW had been on top of this.

    You can't win, when will ATT get going on this, in my area? But if Verizon did, again in my area, I would fly to a V Note 3 in a second. But then again I'm not a fan of any carrier (CA aka carrier agnostic).
