The big question is whether "complete" now means something less than having LTE wherever 3G was before. Which is probably doable...all Verizon has left at this point are pretty rural areas where they'll be deploying for coverage rather than capacity (e.g. in Fredericksburg and Kerrville, TX where they have PCS spectrum and thus plenty of sites to choose from). But will VZW see enough money to be made to do it?

They also need to thicken their coverage. There are places where you can get 3G but not LTE even thought they're implementing LTE on 700MHz. So I hope they put LTE wherever they have 3G. If nothing else it will give AT&T and Sprint a target to shoot for.

Will this free up contractor crews for Sprint?

 

There could be some overlap with subcontractors. But I don't think this is going to make a huge impact.
