Verizon has recently gone as far to say that all smart phones they make in the future will definitely be 4G LTE capable, (with the exception of one or two phones). This is great because it means that smaller areas will start to get 4G networks, and that it will become the new norm.
Even though you could get 4G LTE capable devices BEFORE they released this, you couldn’t always get 4G reception. Now over the next few months, many different areas will be gaining the ability to do this. It’s great that soon pretty much everyone is going to be able to get 4G service.
