Verizon 4G LTE

Just a friendly reminder for all you Verizon customers out there. Tomorrow, will be a great day if you live in the any of the following areas:

  • Mobile, Ala.
  • Montgomery, Ala.
  • Pensacola, Fla.
  • Tallahassee, Fla.
  • Gainesville, Fla.
  • Fayetteville-Lumberton, N.C.
  • Greater Fairfield and New London, Conn.
  • Bryan-College Station and Temple-Killeen, Texas

Verizon's also increased the LTE footprint in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, New Orleans and Philadelphia.

Keep in mind though; you'll need a 4G LTE capable device in order to see any changes. Samsung Droid Charge and HTC Thunderbolt owners, you're in. The rest of you, well -- no such luck unless you're making use of a 4G modem offered by Verizon.We're pretty sure Phil will be 4G drunk by mid-afternoon so we're counting on him to tell us the second it actually goes live.

Full list of LTE-enabled cities is after the break.

Reminder: New Verizon 4G LTE areas are live today


State College, PA (Penn State University and surrounding areas) have had 4G for a couple weeks now... Doesn't look like Verizon has it on their coverage map though... Must not be official yet.

OK Chris. I nearly wet myself when you included New London, CT in your post. New London would give me service...New Haven is just a tease!

Steve in CT

Meanwhile, Sprint users in Detroit are still sucking wind with no 4G on the horizon, if ever. [mad face]

UPDATE: After posting this, I looked around and found that 4G IS available in parts of the Metro Detroit area. Unfortunately, my home, work and girlfriend's place are all outside the coverage areas so far! Work is closest to Nirvana.

Your not the only one..only chance i have is if i move....cable doesn't come down the road, neighbor told me that my sprint is faster than his dsl..i'm pretty much screwed..i have a device on the 3 major networks now..the fastest i have.. at&t..sprint is hanging me out had high hopes verizon would expand only thing i have going for me is grandfathered into sprint unlimited 3g..

I've noticed LTE has been recently expanded in Indianapolis. I'm now able to pick up strong 4G in the downtown area and as far south as Greenwood. Verizon's coverage map still says it's only deployed at the airport.

I got 7,5Mbps download, and 5 Mbps upload here in montreal with regular 3G+ (now called 4G with rogers) Difference with LTE isn't that huge? I heard Rogers should launch their LTE network at the end of summer in montreal, I hope to see a difference :-)

Any idea why Verizon is apparently avoiding Austin? Are all the execs Aggies?

Also, any real-world anecdotes on just how far out of one of these cities you might still be able to receive signal? (My understanding is CDMA towers have longer range than GSM, but I don't know what kind of range that is and how long the range is for LTE towers...)

I'm ~95miles north of San Antonio/~15miles south of Austin, wondering if there's a chance to pick up SA 4G coverage, or if I'm even screwed should Austin "get covered".

Why is it Hampton Roads, Virginia isn't getting any 4G love (from Sprint either). There is a significant population of males aged 18-25 with plenty of disposable income here. I just don't understand it.

In Tallahassee. I started getting 4G on my Thunderbolt yesterday. Have run SpeedTest several times. I've gotten as high as 4Mbps up and 4 Mbps down. But, my average, when I have decent signal seems to run about 3 - 3.5 Mbps down and 1.5 - 2 Mbps up.

Have gone south of town yet, but I got the 4/4 result while driving on Thomasville road in front of Walmart, north of I-10.
