Verizon Wireless says its new “4G” wireless broadband network will start accepting customers on Sunday in 38 cities.

Initially, only laptop users will be able to take advantage of the higher data speeds offered by the network, compared with Verizon’s 3G network. The speeds are roughly comparable to those offered by T-Mobile USA’s and AT&T Inc. where their 3G networks have been upgraded to the highest speeds.

Verizon Wireless had already revealed where the network will be available first. The coverage areas include California as well as the cities on the Boston-to-Washington stretch, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Seattle.
