Mobile operator USCarrier Telecom was selected to start rolling out Verizon's LTE system in Georgia and Alabama. By the end of the year, it hopes to have as much as 30 markets in the US covered by the new network.
The mobile company, which has gained a lot of awareness over its largest 3G network in the country, does not want to fall behind when everyone goes 4G. There are already rumors that the world's first 4G phone, HTC's EVO, will be coming to Verizon after it first launches exclusively with Sprint.
"Because of the increased demand for mobile data traffic, USCarrier is dedicated to staying in the forefront of network technology as we continuously upgrade our core network to help deliver the most innovative, cost-effective 3G and 4G services available to Verizon Wireless," said USCarrier president Joaquin Luna.
