Verizon has just announced the completion of their first two true tests on the LTE network, in Seattle and Boston. The test in Seattle was finished on July 15th, while the one in Seattle on August 14th. The trials ran on the 700Mhz spectrum they recently won.

The devices used were provided by Samsung and LG, but also Motorola devices are on their way. Currently there are 10 cell sites in both Boston and Seattle, while Verizon is preparing to take 30 markets live in 2010, as they promised.

Verizon didn’t want to specify what speeds they managed to reach with the trials, but they are confident that the speeds will average at 7 – 12Mbps download and 3 – 5Mbps upload. LTE’s priority will be the data modems at launch, because, according to them, there are some issues with the VoIP, including the 911 calls.
