Chief Technical Officer David Small noted Verizon will have "at least 400 markets" with 4G LTE sites by the start of 2013. Verizon's current network, which is the largest in the U.S., covers 200 million Americans and has 200 sites.
Rival AT&T made a similar announcement this week, but their network is still lagging behind. AT&T currently covers 75 million Americans with the carrier expecting to cover 150 million by the end of the year.
Small did note that 4G LTE is still a relatively small market for Verizon, with only 5 percent of its subscribers using the fast data network.
