Verizon Starts Name Dropping New 4G LTE Cities that Go Live on May 19

Verizon is taking to Twitter today to announce the next batch of 4G LTE cities, that they teased us with on Friday.  So far we have at least 6 new cities and some expanded coverage in Philadelphia.  The activation of service is not supposed to go live until this Thursday, May 19, but we wouldn’t be surprised if these cities are turned on within the next 24 hours.

  • Philadelphia, PA (expanded coverage)
  • Gainsville, FL
  • Pensacola, FL
  • Tallahassee, FL
  • Mobile, AL
  • Montgomery, AL
  • Fayetteville-Lumberton, NC

Anyone enjoying new 4G yet?

Cheers Gorgio!

  • Went live in Pensacola around 12:04 (yes, they were late) <_<

  • Diddy

    awww yes woke up to 4G goodness in Montgomery,Al loving it Verizon flip the switch already

  •  I have 4G on my Thunderbolt as of today, Montgomery, AL!

     We need some help in WV 

  • Antdwg67

     Damn VZW was just testing 4g last week here in Rockford,Illinois and we aren’t getting it? That’s a bunch of BS!! I want my 4g!!

  • Rizzidy

     Who knew Verizon was such a fan of slave states?

  • Mckoi76

     Verizon has some love for us in Florida.

  • CyDetrakD

    I’m stoked 4G is coming to Pensacola in no time but disappointed there isn’t one phone that I’m remotely interested in. Verizon has been ready for months back in November my og Droid went down for the weekend because some idiot flipped the switch for 4G and a few hundred phones including mine was affected.

    Bring on the Bionic dammit.

    • I remember when that happened! Why no Thunderbolt love? 😀

    Until they mention Albuquerque I really don’t care. But since Abq is a hell hole, it might be a while…. :/
    Also since Vzw has no 4g devices I give a rats arse about it doesn’t matter anyway!! 🙂

    • Fadfsa

      No 4g devices, other than the Thunderbolt and Charge, you mean? 

  • Jinxygrrl

     Does that mean that those of us already in a 4g area will be screwed up again??????

  •  Erie,Pa Please!!!! Would make traveling faster than ever!!

    Pensacola’s on there!! That means I’ll have 4G available next month when I can upgrade!

     Gainesville is spelled wrong. Lol. Regardless, can’t wait!

    yea thats right Verizon.. keep ignoring the west coast. What did we ever do to you!

    • Missthetrain

      Verizon knows that no body on the west coast would paid $300 for that Fugly phone, so might as well start somewhere else. 

      • Jordan

        I’m pretty sure people on the west coast are far wealthier than people on the east coast…youre comment doesn’t even make sense

        • Missthetrain

          You forgot smarter 

          • DroidDoesEgo

            And better looking 

          • Bladebarrier

            Most of the country is looking forward to California falling into the ocean, in 2012. It just wouldn’t be prudent to waste resources on a network out there, when it will only last a brief period of time. 

          • LionStone

            Hah, yea thats why Cali already got much love…just waitin for Raleigh, NC…don’t understand why it doesn’t have it already, will be soon though…

  •  I live in between Pensacola and Tallahassee. I wonder if I will be on the fringe of the network. Anyone know an estimated radius of VZW’s LTE towers?

    • I’m wondering this as well. 

    • RJM

      VZW sales rep (note credibility rating) told me about 15 miles per tower radius. I live 5 miles from Pensacola and had asked if we would be included in the fun. He also told me 4G would light up about 3 Thursdays ago. rating) told me about 15 miles per tower radius. I live 5 miles from Pensacola and had asked if we would be included in the fun.

  • scannerman

    Add Denver to that list

  • Rohicks

    Damn.Florida is getting some mad love.

  • So, they teased us in Winston-Salem last week with a brief burst of 4G, but no plans on *really* turning it on yet? -______-

  • PSU_DI

     State College, PA has been up for 3 days now.

  • people in florida never heard of 4G

    need to expand all of Texas first, since we’re the best and brightest.

    • Note the first comment. Obviously we have 🙂  we have 🙂 

    • Cwpit81

      You know what comes from Texas right

  • Bqluong

    Western United States too please?

  • Sob157

    I wonder how far their services reach beyond city limits… how much lover are the burbs of these major cities getting?

    • Edbdroid

       I was in South Florida recently visiting family and was rather disappointed that the LTE coverage covered as little of the western suburbs of Ft. Lauderdale as it does…

    • bigdav1178

      Coverage maps on VZW now show 4G data as well as the 3G and voice coverage they always showed. You can see exactly where the 4G coverage is.

      I’m hoping the expanded Phily coverage actually reaches me – I live a whole 15 miles from the edge of current coverage (which is small compared to most of the other cities that have gotten 4G access).

     First! Still no Norfolk-Virginia Beach, which is in the top 30 U.S. markets…go figure.

    • Nyghtwolf

      It’s like Norfolk is out in the desert somewhere as we don’t get even a sniff but already W. Va. gets some love…please!!!

      VZW is really letting a huge group of loyal consumers down big time!!!

    • Brandon

      No one cares about Virginia Beach sorry 

  • MFG

     Question: I live in the suburbs in Jersey, about 30 mins from NYC. 10 minutes from me we have 4G LTE that is coming from NYC, I guess. Since we don’t have it in my town but do a little closer to NYC, when would I expect it? Are they just going to keep building out from NYC without announcing it and one day I’ll wake up with 4G? it and one day I’ll wake up with 4G?
