LTE is a 4g technology that is a part of GSM.

While Verizon uses LTE, which is a GSM technology, they still use CDMA for Voice and non-4G data. Once Verizon's entire network is supports LTE, then they likely will drop CDMA, but that is a long way away since they would lose all 2G and 3G connectivity.
