Verizon will launch 4G LTE service in South Florida on Sunday

Verizon Wireless has announced plans to roll out 4G service in 38 major cities starting Sunday, a roll-out that will include Miami, Fort Lauderdale West Palm Beach and Orlando.

Called the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution), the network being launched is Verizon’s fourth generation cellular service. Major cities signing-on include Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Seattle.

The service will also become available at 60 airports throughout the country this weekend, possibly including Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando International airports.

The cost of the service will be $50 per month for 5 gigabytes (GB) of usage–$10 less than the company currently charges for 3G service–or $80 for 10 GB worth of service.

But if you want a 4G phone from Verizon, you’ll have to wait a few more months. However, the company will sell USB air cards for $99 – the cost after you receive a rebate and sign-up for a two-year contract.
