Apparently you've never looked. That delay was due to VZW not signing off on it. The official explanation of "it uses a different baseband so it needed a separate update" is nonsense.
No, you are misinterpreting. That story says nothing about Verizon not signing off on it. iOS4 had a separate build for CDMA (or, Verizon) iPhones and GSM iPhones and other iOS devices. 4.2.5 through 4.2.10 were all CDMA-only updates, provided in parallel with 4.3.1 through 4.3.5 (4.2.9 was released the same day as 4.3.4, for example; 4.2.10 the same day as 4.3.5.) Since iOS5, all Verizon iPhones (and iPads) have received the same update on the same schedule as all other iPhones (because, of course, Apple controls the distribution - not Verizon.)

If you have evidence that Verizon has the contractual ability to delay iOS updates, I'd love to see it.
