Verizon shows 8.55Mbps speeds in 4G LTE trial

LTE logoVerizon Wireless recently published a marketing video that covers the company's LTE trial deployment in Boston, Massachusetts, and though the majority of the video is dedicated to consumer reactions, there is a brief glimpse of the system running at an average 8.55 Megabits per second downstream and 2.80 Megabits per second upstream.

These speeds are actually a bit lower than those reportedly attainable on the first commercial LTE deployment in Scandinavia. The LTE deployment in Sweden reportedly never exceeded 12Mbps downlink and 5Mbps uplink when tested by management consulting firm Northstream in January.

Verizon completed its first LTE trials in Boston and Seattle late in the summer of 2009, and expects to make it commercially available in 25 to 30 markets by the fourth quarter of 2010.
