Big, Red and FAST.

Sprint isn't going to enjoy their 4G exclusivity for long. Verizon is about to roll out an LTE network to compete with Clear's WiMAX. eWeek reports that Verizon managers announced a plan to bring 4G to 30 "National Football League" cities by the end of 2010.

The whole nation should be blanketed by Verizon 4G around 2013. Their network will support speeds from 5-12 Mbps (down) and 2-5 Mbps (up). Actual real-world speeds may bare no resemblance to these numbers. Verizon's service will almost certainly start "slow" and improve in quality / coverage over the next year or so. Early adopters WILL have some issues. But when is that ever not the case?

Verizon will be the third network (Sprint's WiMAX, T-Mo HSPA+) with a 4G-quality data service. AT&T's LTE network isn't due to launch until mid-2011.
