Verizon Wireless and AT&T are the largest mobile providers that have bet on LTE as their 4G technology of choice compared to the WiMAX 4G flavor that Sprint and Clearwire are utilizing. Verizon is set to launch LTE 4G service in Boston and Seattle this year.

Verizon has announced that it has successfully completed 4G data calls in the Boston and Seattle areas. The mobile provider says that the first field-level trials have integrated network vendors 4G technology over a 700MHz spectrum.

Verizon reports that Boston and Seattle now have 10 LTE 4G cell sites up and running on the 700 MHz spectrum, that Verizon purchased in the FCC auction. The spectrum was vacated by TV broadcasters after the digital transition finally happened early in the summer.
