In a video interview with Unstrung, Verizon Wireless Senior VP of product development Roger Gurnani strongly hints that the carrier's LTE wireless broadband network could be completed by 2014. The company's current plans involve launching a couple of test markets sometime this year, with "30 or so" new LTE markets launched in 2010. "From there we'll build it out in the next two, three years, where we'll have LTE deployed throughout our footprint," says Gurnani. Of course talk is cheaper than deployment, but recent comments from the carrier seem to suggest they have no intention of letting Sprint get all the 4G glory.
