Verizon working on 4G sooner than later?

Verizon and AT&T are going to transfer their systems over to the 4G LTE systems throughout 2010 according to past releases.  It appears that Verizon could be accelerating that time schedule according to a report on Appleinsider. Could it be to accomodate a new 4G equipped Apple product?  Who knows.  Anyway I digress.

So I was in my local Verizon store switching up some details of our family plan (one family member now moving on to their own plan. Yeah!)  And naturally, being an Apple fan, I slipped in a bit about the iPhone.  The salesmen said, “Well you know it won’t be with only AT&T forever.  It could be here some day.”  I added that it certainly would as Apple is greedy and wants to sell more phones, but that it wouldn’t happen until the change to 4G later in 2010 and early 2011.  He suddenly became coy with a slight smile.  Hmm.  Could it be word is sifting down that the change over is accelerating?

Verizon fans are salivating.  You know it.
