Verizon 4G LTE has been Restored Nationally

Well, here is some semi-good news this morning folks.  4G LTE is back up nationwide, although we’ve been told eHRPD is not, which means no soft hand-offs between 3G and 4G at this time.  Here is the text we received:

LTE Connectivity Restored: Network has been able to confirm that the LTE Network has been restored nationally.

Update:  Verizon has also now confirmed via Twitter.

So again, we’re getting there slowly but surely.  Everyone back up?

Cheers Spaniard!

    Just called VZW and they said that they are experiencing outtages again in some areas and told me my area is one of those – Southern Chicagoland.

    • John

      Looks like we’re up and running again.

      • Pcrowley59

  • Porno

    Check your speeds with SPEEDTEST.NET app!! The network is SLOW!!!!

      I have tried to be patient over all this since it’s a new network. However I am paying for it and I should expect to get what I am paying for. (that’s reasonable isn’t it?) I still do not really have 4g, it says 4g sometimes, then 1x, but I can’t get data to flow for more than a few seconds before dropping off again.

      I am thinking of calling and asking them to credit my account while they work out their issues.

    • Whitl103

      I feel like I’m about to jinx it, but 4G in Orange County is going strong.

      Hotspot tested at 23Mbps

    • John

      It’s still slow 12 hours later…. What’s the deal. I’m getting 3G speeds with 4G signal.

  • ShaneBoddie

    No 4G here in Alexandria, Louisiana…wait, we didn’t have 4G anyway. 3G is back up though

    4G restored in Denver

    Stuck on 3G in Orlando…

  • Nativi

    No 4G here in Charlotte, NC. But from I heard from the VZW Rep is they did an update. She said she has the Bolt too and was mad. Call tech support and was told they are still working on the update, but that 4G should be a lil faster.

    What really made me laugh through all this was the people attacking verizon. You do remember that it’s a brand new system that has never been implented for consumers right? There will be bumps in the road. They got it fixed this fast and have done a great job with LTE so far so I say good job Verizon.

    • Anonymous

      Sure, but it’s not fixed. I had 4g back up for a little bit but now I’m back to 1x and 4g will pop up for a few seconds here and there, but I am getting NO data flowing to my phone. I am all for being patient while allowing for the “bumps in the new road”. But the fact is that they are charging us for this and they have been having many bumps in the road. I am understanding of the issue, but I would like them to not charge me for service not provided. That is reasonable isn’t it? EDIT: Right now I am sitting on 1x and that doesn’t even work.

        ” Dial ##778# and hit send
        * A pop-up window named EPST will show up giving you 2 choices: View Mode and Edit Mode. Pick: Edit Mode.
        * Enter the Password: 000000
        * Go down to Modem Settings and pick “Rev A“
        * You’ll want to choose enable and click OK, hit the menu button and then press “Commit Modifications.”
        * Restart your phone and you should see 3G is working

        To switch back to 3G/4G, follow same instructions but choose eHRPD.”

        This was posted yesterday as a temporary fix and it worked great for me on my Thunderbolt…

        • Anonymous

          Thanks. However I think that if Verizon is going to Tweet that their network is back up, they should wait till their network is back up.

          They have “Prematurely Tweeted”… :) Right now I have NO DATA

          • http://twitter.com/CamDroid CamDroid

            I dont know of “many” bumps but either way it’s only been one day, not weeks. They aren’t recalling your phones or anything like that. They are addressing the issue publicly and still working on it. I agree that they shouldnt have said its been fixed if it hasn’t been but what I was talking about was the major overreactions from people.

          • Anonymous

            I’m not sure if you own this phone but it has not been one day. Maybe one day so far this time, but it has been an issue since the phone has been released.

          • http://twitter.com/CamDroid CamDroid

            I’ve heard of a few issues but they are expected. If you really want a refund for your data from the one day that it’s been so far call verizon and ask for $1. Thats what youve lost so far.

          • Anonymous

            LOL… Yes I expect issues, and I am patient. P.S. I did call tech support and the very nice lady said they are still having issues and she said they are offering a free months data since they are having so many issues. I told her I’m not worried about it as long as things have improved by next month. So for those that even care they are offering a months data credit.

          • http://twitter.com/CamDroid CamDroid

            Sorry if I came off strong but there are certain people that are extremely pissed off at Verizon and threatening others with lawsuits. Thanks for calling and getting the actual word from them. Kellex should post an update that certain areas are still having issues.

            It is amazing when you actually talk to a person instead of bitching on a public forum/comment board.

            Do they not teach communication skills in school anymore?

          • Anonymous

            People, People I hear what youguys are saying and the over reactions with a device that has some bumps along the way but this is a system that will get better. Nothing is ever perfect!! Apple has had their problems and so on.

            I would suggest that you call Verizon and let them know how it’s affected your service and possibly work, demand the number of days that service has interrrupted the phone and deduct that off the buill. A good company will comply since it’s nationally known that their 4g LTE service is down. Just sayin :)

            I started having issues Tuesday morning and have not had any 4g coverage during the day(while I’m at work in Columbus, OH) since then. Every time it switches to 4g on my phone i have ZERO data flow.

    3g back up near boston. no way for me to confirm if 4g is working, i’d have to go into boston for that.

    • Anonymous

      Then that likely means 4G is back in Boston as well.

    virginia is so naked, no stars =[

  • DROID

    I would be back up if I had 4G!!

    I can wait for 5G, which will be 100x faster than 4G.

    • Guest

      According to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), a main requirement is 4G technology needs to support peak download speeds of 100Mbps. Plus the ITU currently does not have a 5G standard yet, so don’t hold your breath on that one until 4G is fully implemented to its full 100Mbps.

        Did you adjust your settings yesterday to try to capture 3G? If not then try pulling the battery and restarting the phone. Verizon claims we’re back up nationwide.
