Verizon Wireless planning major network upgrade

Following years of Verizon dominating the industry in speed and service, its chief rival has jumped ahead. AT&T is now the performance leader based on speed tests conducted by RootMetrics and PC Magazine, meaning its network can deliver applications, websites and other data the fastest. Verizon says it’s starting service this summer on a network that is twice as fast, to regain its advantage and fend off AT&T and Sprint Nextel Corp., which is being rejuvenated by money from SoftBank Corp.
