Verizon Wireless is six months ahead of schedule in competing its Long-Term Evolution network, said Lowell McAdam, CEO of parent company Verizon Communications, noting the carrier's network should be completed by mid-year. In a speech at 2013 International CES, McAdam said Verizon wants to air the 2014 Super Bowl over its LTE network, part of a plan to expand into broadcasting live TV and leveraging LTE into other services. "Our goal is to break down the barriers between home and mobile once and for all,” he said. Verizon also said in a filing that it activated 9.8 million smartphones in the fourth quarter, many of them iPhones, but said that it would report lower cash flow than a year ago.
