Verizon is making a big push to upgrade its Next Generation (NG) LTE network to 4-G LTE, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The carrier has recently announced plans to make a major rollout of Next Generation technology, and is reportedly in the final stages of rolling out 4G service to its network.
Bloomberg says that Verizon plans to roll out 4-g LTE in 2019.
According to the report, Verizon plans on upgrading the network to the 4-2-1 band by 2019, with LTE speeds topping out at up to 100 Mbps.
While 4G speeds may be faster than LTE speeds, it’s worth noting that 4G isn’t necessarily the fastest, as speeds tend to degrade as you go along.
Verizon’s announcement comes after the company has been criticized for making it harder for people to switch carriers.
This is especially true of the U.S. wireless market, where AT&T and T-Mobile have been making moves to expand their 4G networks and push more customers to buy prepaid plans.
While Verizon has said that it will be making its Next Gen LTE network available to customers through Verizon Next Generation, the company hasn’t yet announced a price or availability for the upgrade.
