Yet they continue to ignore major parts of LA county. Come on VZW.

almahix says:

And ALL of Ventura County too. pisses me off!


I was born in Oxnard, visit often since all family is there and sucks that no LTE is there yet. And I'm sure my brother would return to VZW from AT&T if LTE was there. But the Fios Wifi at my mom's is damn fast.

onsoku says:

Agree. I'm not sure why Ventura County is getting ignored. It is a major corridor to San Francisco, the 101 runs right through it, and it would close the gap between Los Angeles & Santa Barbara. From a build out perspective, it would appear that the demographics support it. The largest employers in the area [Dept of Defense] are significant Verizon users...WAKE UP VERIZON!

Wicket says:

same thing I look for each time too.. lots of bad patches in the LA area that they need to plug with LTE goodness.

jcastag says:

Same thing in huge parts of NNJ. And their HQ is in NJ. WTF

PGU#AC says:

Their HQ is covered quite well.

sushiguy732 says:

Most of NJ get's shit on

fender2469 says:

What about Amarillo, Tx.? Still no love from big red!!

FanDroid619 says:

Awesome! Now the citizens of these cities can reach their "Share Everything" data caps much sooner! Yay! Hope these folks don't mind payin' overages! Cheers. =)

We had a blink on of the 4G here in Manhattan KS last week. Hoping that means launch is soon.

racedog says:

My wife and I are in Manhattan KS quite a bit and I noticed a few weeks ago that some of the towers now had LTE antennae on them. Was wondering when they would be testing those and then lighting them up for good.

dskwerl says:

I'm shocked that Maine is on that list. I'm not personally a Verizon customer, but I was pretty certain 4G wouldn't come here anytime in the foreseeable future.

pprichar says:

This makes me so happy, moving from Biddeford area to Portland in 2013!

dskwerl says:

Moving from Biddeford at all is a cause for excitement.

pprichar says:

well technically I live in Lyman... UNE is in the nice part of Biddeford

dskwerl says:

Fair enough. I really can't say much, though, I live in Sanford. And hate it.

I have been in the Portland, Maine area an i am loving it.. I had lived in Dallas, Texas when 4G came out and liked it there..

Jayshmay says:

Still no Boulder City, Nv, where the Hoover Dam is, boo-hoo

hoosiercub says:

So.. Seymour, Indiana WAS on the list a few weeks ago when they announced this expansion.. is it no more, just Columbus, Lafayette, LaPorte, and Michigan City :(

cloud12077 says:

No love for Southern Minnesota yet. I live in a college town and 2 towns over is where the switch is located for southern mn. I thought Minneapolis sweet! Looks like we will get it sooner than have I been wrong...

Mankato isn't exactly a huge town. :| Probably in a few years. I'm guessing St Cloud will get it first.

dacp283 says:

Waco already has 4G... Had it for awhile so assuming it's an expansion.

shatter71 says:

Got a text from a friend earlier today about LTE going live in Marysville, California this morning on his ipad. Yeah!!

radgatt says:

For some reason they didn't list Mebane, NC on the list. I'm still enjoying the 4G everywhere I go.

HAAS599 says:

Panama City got 4G!! I might switch to Verizon soon. Phil, your welcome to drive over here and use it anytime you like.

cmandd says:

Still nothing for Lynchburg, Va, but at least I know they are testing it out.

seeingwhite says:

Yup, very soon. Tested it at 16 down, 8.5 up last week.

gcims says:

Finally closed the gap between the Athens and Atlanta footprints!

creeeeg says:

I'm really surprised it's making it up to Houghton, MI. AT&T finally got their 3G network up here last November, lol.

ctk4949 says:

How about west kendall in Miami!! Im like two blocks away from 4G!!

glazedfaith says:

I've also been rocking the VZW LTE since I joined them a few weeks ago. Is 12/5 megs down/up decent for VZW LTE, or can I expect an increase with this expansion?

N3tT3chMan says:

in Louisville im getting anywhere from 25-50 mbps down and 10-20 up

dmchenry35 says:

Man it's all around by this little crap town is always the last to get anything cool! Come on already!

N3tT3chMan says:

I'm confused why so many people say they are going to reach their overages much faster. I'm guessing these are people with unlimited plans that really dont see how much data they actually use? I have 4GB of data and my average usage is around 2GB a month and I use mine for corp. email and surfing the web all the time. Unless you are downloading movies from your phone your not going to go over.

eh. Yes and no. I do a lot of maps, Google Music, Pandora, a little bit of tethering, moderate browsing, a ton of picture syncing with dropbox, and edit and upload/download docs. I'm on sprint and am using about 2.25GB a month and that is because the network here sucks. I can easily see myself using 3-4GB if I get an actual reliable network soon. (switching to V.)

Premium1 says:

Good to see verizon continued their rapid expansion. Now if only they would allow people to use more data for the same price not less.

wscaddie56 says:

FYI, was driving back to the Cities through Eau Claire, WI and caught a 4g signal. Too far from the Cities for the signal to reach there so I imagine we see this city added soon.

dragonkid463 says:

I'm surprised to not see Yankton, SD, on this list yet. The towers there have been active for a couple of months now.

Jackson MS here! Excited about the new expansion... been waiting for some time.

I will say though, that our LTE has actually been live for just about a month now.. it just hasn't been official from VZW till today. I would advise anyone to test their 4G pretty often to see if you get a signal in your area, regardless of whether your carrier has announced it or not. They seem (in my case) to test for a month or so before official launch.

mofoliar says:

Marysville, so i wonder if they will surprise us here in chico,ca.. Lets hope so, just got a razr again before the big switch gets turned on.. COme on Big Red

nklenchik says:

I live in Binghamton. We've had LTE here for 2 weeks now

EJT says:

Yeah, I was going to say that. It's been working since June fifth.

Unobtanium says:

So, does this mean the system will settle down and I'll stop randomly just losing the LTE signal for no apparent reason?

complexx says:

I'm shocked that they still have not provided coverage to all suburbs of NYC. I'm a 35 min drive from NYC and live just on the edge of coverage. To not cover northern westchester is ridiculous.

Masheen says:

They hit white Plains and Fishkill and skip everything in between. Stupid, I know.

I can't believe a little sh**hole like San Angelo is getting it while so many other major places aren't. I'd never know about San Angelo if it wasn't for Goodfellow AFB. Well, at least my fellow Army Intel guys will have 4G goodness while getting their training.

Masheen says:

More expansion in NYC! I already get 26 down and 17 up in Harlem. Haha

Masheen says:

make option to delete 2x posts.

trophyking says:

Hay Verizon what about Rockland County NY " Stony Point " We are all waiting what good is a 4G LTE phone if you cant use it!! COME ON GET ON THE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
