Verizon LTE

While their commercials have gotten some attention from the likes of Saturday Night Live, Verizon continues their 4G LTE rollout and expansion having most recently added 7 new markets to the mix. As announced on the Verizon website earlier, the new markets are:

  • Little Rock, Ark.
  • Rapid City, S.D.
  • Clarksville, Tenn.
  • Cookeville, Tenn.
  • San Antonio, Tex.
  • Rochester-Area, New York

In addition to those areas, Verizon has also added 13 new cell sites in and around Cabot, Jacksonville, Sherwood, the Little Rock Air Force Base, Ward, Austin and Gravel Ridge to ensure coverage along the Highway 67/167 corridor.

Verizon continues their 4G LTE rollout and expansion, 7 new markets now covered


I would kill for 4G coverage on Long Island. Sure, once you hit the western part of Nassau county you get some of coverage from NYC, but Suffolk still has nothing. It's a shame my GN's LTE radio has only been put into action once >.<

What are you talking about? All of Nassau County is covered, with the LTE area extending east into western Suffolk, as fasr as Copiague and Melville. Me thinks you are thinking about AT&Ts LTE coverage, which stops at the queens/nassau border.

The past few days I am seeing 4g lit up on my rezound on and off in eastern and mid Suffolk. Patchogue, riverhead, and west Hampton areas. Looks like they may be testing as it is very intermittent and speeds are not that great when its up but definitely promising.

all these minor markets and a area the size of phoenix is still not lit up beyond the center of town. If they still plan on retiring their 3g they better get better coverage in their major markets, because they suck right now. I'm in a highly populated area just on the NW corner of town and can't get a 4g signal without going 20 miles.

FYI, the Saturday Night Live bit was a Verizon commercial...was one of about 4 poor attempts at paid product placement in that episode. And if this week is anything like it it'll be the last time I watch for a while.

Happy to see the continued roll out though, now that I have a RAZR it actually matters to me!
