Verizon’s LTE really is quite a bit faster – this will be a welcome change. I’ve seen it active in town on and off over the past few weeks.

Will this support simultaneous voice and data on the Verizon version of the Apple iPhone the way AT&T has since the beginning? On Verizon, you’d need two phones to do tha same thing.
