It its ever-expanding conquest for mobile domination, Verizon Wireless will be turning on 4G LTE connectivity in 15 more cities across the nation, as well as expanding in 10 existing markets, on Thursday, August 18th.

In the past eight months, VZW has expanded its 4G LTE network to cover over half of the US, putting it on track to bring LTE to more than 185 million Americans by the end of the year.

Cities affected by this expansion will be:

  • Tucson, AZ
  • Fayetteville/Springdale/Rogers, AR
  • Bakersfield and Salinas/Monterey/Seaside, CA
  • Fort Collins, CO
  • Frederick, MD
  • Worcester, MA
  • Omaha, NE
  • Council Bluffs, IA
  • Albany, Ithaca and Syracuse, NY
  • Altoona and Johnstown, PA
  • Memphis, TN
  • Prova, UT

In addition to the new markets, ten existing markets will see an expanded coverage area:

  • Washington DC
  • Tampa, FL
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Boston, MA
  • Lansing, MI
  • New York, NY
  • Cincinnati and Columbus, OH
  • Salt Lake City-Ogden, UT

If you're not one of the lucky ones getting LTE tomorrow, don't sweat it -- Big Red shows no signs of slowing down this rollout, so there's a good chance you'll be covered by year's end.

    It's like they hate Virginia or something.

    Nothing on the roadmap for my state in 2011, which is why I didn't worry about LTE when I got my DROID 3.

      Yea, VA is getting no love, but the spill over from DC is huge if you live or work in northern VA.
