Verizon Wireless’ domination of the domestic, and for that matter worldwide, LTE market, was built on trials and tribulations. For a carrier that claims to currently carry 60% of the world’s LTE traffic and has a history of touting network quality, there is hope that those issues are now behind.
Hans Leutenegger, VP of Network in the South region for Verizon Wireless, noted that the carrier did see some issues with certain devices and equipment that led to some well-publicized network issues last year, but that for the most part it has learned from those issues and does not expect a repeat. The carrier is also seeing advancements in the handoff of data sessions between its legacy CDMA network and LTE network, which Leutenegger explained will allow consumers to maintain data sessions when switching between networks.
