In an interview with Fierce Wireless, Mike Haberman, vice president of network engineering for Verizon Wireless, has confirmed that almost 50% of its data transmissions now travel over its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. The figure is up significantly from October 2012, when the company indicated that around 35% of its data load was carried over its 4G network. Further, the cellco said that it expects to witness a seven-fold overall increase in data traffic during the next three years. Haberman noted that Verizon’s LTE network now covers around 89% of its legacy 2G/3G network footprint.
