    White River Jct in Vermont is already up and running, has been for about a month? Not sure exactly, the range isn't great (hills & valleys) but it's there...

  • Flaime DeFeo

    Every month I eagerly check to see if the north shore of LI is getting LTE, and every month I'm disappointed >.<

      I know how you feel. I live in a small city of 50,000 and a town down the road from me with about 2000 people got 4g before I did.

      I read this as North Pole at first.

  • Goldni007

    Nobody's gonna catch the big red.

    • Kellic

      They don't need to catch. At a certain point there is going to be a speed on LTE that people will be perfectly happy with. So if Verizon doubles their speed and everyone else is at what Verizon is currently at but cheaper....yah no one is going to care. I mean seriously I don't need a bigillion GB/s speeds. I just did a test. I'm getting 27.23MB per sec on Verizon. Honestly? I don't need anything faster then that on my phone. This is why I jumped to Verizon last month. Its a 2 year fling with big red, and which point I check out Sprint and T Mobile again and see where their LTE and coverage is. If its comparable to what I have with Verizon now and cheaper? I'm gone.

    Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn."

    Heh. What holes were left? I mean I get flawless signal everywhere.

  • VonDerThWood

    Monroe, LA has had 4G for a while now, guys. at least a month.
    C'mon Verizon! Give me some 4G lurve.

    Miami, FL has never been fully supported. I live in Miami FL, (The Hammocks area) and there is not one drop of 4g signal.

    First I get 4G at my house today and now my ISP has upped my plan to 30mbps for free. Maybe I'll play the lottery today.

    Woohoo. Finally eau claire, wi! But they messed up and like 1/4 of Chippewa gets Lte so now I have crappy battery life with my data constantly switching.

  • http://twitter.com/yellowspyder Spyder Ryder

    they aren't doing ANYTHING in New Mexico. This must be an ATT state?

  • yarrellray

    Blah blah, Market after market but in the real world what does this really matter. Especially when all Verizon and it's CDMA LTE NETWORK does nothing but drains battery life dry. Not to mention the pitiful piss poor signal strength and crappy reception on most of it's LTE handsets. I don't here them speaking of the poor Dbm and asu which in turn means Lte is useless. Ask all the current Galaxy Nexus owners how they feel about the overrated and overpriced Lte network and service they receive. People who are on Verizon are brain washed they remind me of apple iphone users misguided. Here in New York City Tmobile pimp slaps Verizon all day long plain and simple.

    Found this post while researching why my VZN 4G is so low today...uh ha!
