  • Ann Arbor, MI
  • Flint, MI
  • Grand Rapids, MI
  • Lansing, MI
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Fort Wayne, IN
  • State College, PA

  • Harrisburg, PA
  • Dayton, OH
  • Springfield, OH
  • Greenville-Spartanburg, SC
  • Hartford, CT
  • Madison, WI
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Racine, WI
  • Kenosha, WI
  • Wisconsin Dells, WI
  • Sioux Falls, SD

As we see more throughout the day, we’ll do our best to update this post.

Cheers Mark!

  • Some states are being entirely left out?? NH Maine, Virginia, Masses in the Middle West. Hopefullythey get to these states soon!

  • Jamus0

    Woot…..4G in Whippany NJ……..

  • Dave

     All I have heard is all these little places getting coverage, yet, here we sit in Portland with nothing unless your sitting on a runway at the airport. Seems pretty useless unless your flying in or out of the area really. While most other cities are getting “expanded” we are sitting here with nothing useable unless your at the aforementioned place. How about some Portland area 4g coverage sometime in the future, or at least before my phone is outdated.

  • Dayton, OH. Can’t Wait!!!!

  • Tommy

    Still no Eugene or Corvalis Oregon. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    • Dave

      There isn’t even really any portland coverage, unless you live near the airport.

    • Dave

      No real Portland coverage either, unless you live near the airport.

    No love for Virginia. 🙁

    Wait… Ann Arbor, Detroit, Ft. Wayne, Lansing, Dayton, but not Toledo? Weird. A guy I work with said 4G popped up in his notification bar a couple weeks ago..

  • Penguinpudge

    Any info yet on when they will be turning on Rhode Island?

  • Anonymous

    A2! Been seeing it off and on here in Ann arbor was wonderng if they were testing, or bleed over from Detroit.

  •  Lincoln, NE is having LTE installed right now.  I can see the new antennas outside my office building.  The installers even said that’s what they were doing.  I would assume we will go live before the end of the year.

  • RMC

     VZW announces Sacramento going live on 6/16 but I’ve had 4G all day today 🙂

  • Andy Stetson

     People still live in South Dakota?  People actually live in Omaha!

  • Gregb

     State College, PA has had 4g for a couple weeks now.. strange that verizon put us on this list.

  •  LTE in Grand Rapids #winning

  • Yeah, considering how close we are to Tahoe, where all the rich and yuppie folk live, I’m REALLY surprised Reno doesn’t have 4G yet. I mean, Flint, MI, FFS?!

  • Matt4542

     I wonder if I will get LTE speeds since I am 45 minutes away from Hartford.

  • RMC

     Huge areas in northern/central CA are getting it too. From Sacramento to Fresno to north Bay Area to the Eldorado Hills 🙂

  • LPMeteoraremix

    WHOOO MICHIGAN!!! 

  • Wyveryx

     so the curious are starting to get agitated…
    When the hell is the North-West going to start seeing some 4G, hell a majority of the East is danger prone right now, it’s like throwing kindling on a fire… 
    A waste of towers if you ask me lol

      As an East Coast denizen, I have no idea what you are talking about.  Are you confusing the East Coast with the center of the country?  You do know that Tornado Alley and the Mississippi River are not near the East Coast right?

      • Wyveryx

        Well if it’s past the Mississippi, then is east for me 🙂

  • Retrokid223

     The whole lower section of my state has 4G now 😀 (my state is CT)

  • Anonymous

    #correction – Sioux Falls, SD has already rolled out 4g, however I suspect that VZW will be expanding its range to it’s “suburban areas”.

  •  If you’re bitching about not having LTE move your ass out of the country and to a major city. 🙂

    • Fsdf

      one of the major points of 4g was to get faster speeds to rural networks. and we havent seen any of that yet

    Pay attention to the Twitter feed. Boise, Sacramento, Fresno, SAC just got announced.

    • Colbey32

      That should be SLC

  • DroidX_Owner

    Slooooowly moving west…

  • Silverhawk

    Uh, I was in Indianapolis from Weds last week and they had 4G, at least in the Brownsburg/Speedway/Clermont area, all the way down to the airport.

    In case Verizon doesn’t know this.. Sacramento is a large city with a sprawling suburb AND the capital of California. The TBs have been flying off the shelf here. When you ignore the capital of california and the west coast in general.. you are just a moron.

  • Anonymous

    so the 3rd round of new LTE markets being listed.. and not a single west coast market..

    Wow Verizon!.. I never thought I’d say this.. but YOU SUCK!!.

      They FINALLY posted up LTE for Sac area and Bay area.

      • Anonymous

         where? where have they posted it?

           I was right there with you until I saw that LOL

    Finally.  Now if only the droid bionic would drop about then… just not feeling the TBolt or Charge.

  • Anonymous

    Whats up with all the East Coast love, what about the West Coast VZ?

  • Hey look…the west coast doesn’t exist….

  • eleazar

     Dayton!!!!!!! 😀

  • Anonymous

     Is it me or does it seem like West Coast is getting no 4G love.

    So when are you going to show us your little surprise?

  • Bert336

    please have Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem, NC  on the list!! 🙂

     Wow, kinda surprised at all the dayton people on the blog. Glad to see it’s finally here. Looks like I’ll be getting a nice 4g phone in the near future.

    How about Jacksonville, NC. big military town plus everybody and their mother has the TB and Charge now

  • urdaddi

    Perhaps they should make sure all the current markets are working first 

  • Anonymous

     YES, Sioux Falls! That will be a nice early birthday present for me.

  • Anonymous

    Alllright… so all of the 2011 South Carolina markets will be fulfilled…. except for mine, Charleston. Awesome…. 

  •  Austin is a MASSIVE oversight, as is the Raleigh/durham area.  One of the biggest tech centers on the east coast?  Wtf verizon…

    • LionStone

      Yep, there must be some method to their madness…Fayetteville?… RDU doesn’t even have it yet?!

      • Pooch

         I am surprised that Raleigh isn’t on the list.  They have been testing it.  I had 4G twice last week.  I was fully expecting to see Raleigh on the list.

        Pooch

  • Glad to finally be seeing some South Dakota 4G love from Verizon. Can’t wait to see my Tbolt’s battery get drained even quicker!

    • Bleedtoledo

      I’m kinda baffled by batt life complaints. I get great life under moderate to heavy use. I have my 4g off, and keep my screen brightness around 25%, still seems plenty bright to me.

      • Bleedtoledo you said the magic words, you have your 4G off, turn it on in a 4G area and then come back here with your battery life reports

        • Bleedtoledo

          Will do. But I live in Toledo..which I like to call, “Detroit’s Toilet.” So it may be a while..

          • That made me lol so hard that I got stares here at work…. 

      • Bleedtoledo you said the magic words, you have your 4G off, turn it on in a 4G area and then come back here with your battery life reports

  •  OOh, look at all those wisconsin cities. Too bad im about an hour from each. Though i am in them a lot. 

    • HDguru7

      It’s about time the WI cities get something! Madison has Sprint’s 4g, but NOTHING is out for the cities listed here for Verizon. I’m in a city by Michell airport. This will seriously make me want to drop Sprint’s non-existent 4g network and jump ship.

    • Mike

      I live in Madison and it launches on my birthday..hmmm

  • Edward M Yang

     Come on Little Rock….!

  • tjhrulz

     ERIE, PA FTW, hell yes

  • dragon

    can we get some 4g love in jersey?? i mean damn we are right next to all these other damn big cities getting it. 

  • Anonymous

     Flint, MI!?!  Are you kidding me?  Now I’m really baffled at how my city hasn’t gotten 4G yet.

    • Don’t be dissing my Flint, MI.

      • Jam120992

        screw flint =P im getting it in lansing hahah

        • Yeah i really am from Lansing. Live in Syracuse, Try to avoid Flint as much as i can except for the 20 minutes i am in it while i drive down 69.. haha.

          You better be a Spartan Fan…..

  • Smtxom

    I cant believe they still haven’t added Austin TX. Come on! Other than San Antonio, the TX cities they are adding are ridiculous.

    • Drnick124

      This makes me sad. I’m probably moving to Austin near the end of the year, just in time for me to get a new phone…not to mention the area I’m moving from is now getting it in June…

    •  That is weird. I’m not in Austin but it is strange why it wasn’t one of the first cities to get 4g, it’s looking like it may be last. This Is the place with the SXSW event every year after all.

  •  come on get NH some action!

  • dwl137

     State College, PA has had LTE for around 2 weeks now, not sure why that’s on the list…

    • Anonymous

      Harrisburg’s been on for a couple weeks too. In fact I just checked that yesterday w/a friend of mine who lives there.

  • Hogasswildmc

     Still no Norfolk/Virginia Beach?

  • User

     Hoping to see Milwaukee included in that list. Last time I was in a Verizon store about a month ago, the rep said we’d be getting LTE within 60 days.

  •  Oh thank you for Dayton, my tbolt and Charge and mifi are more excited than a kid hoping to get some for the first time after prom.

    Oh wait, that might be me…

  • Law1911

    Okay my Birthday but not my city.. ohh well I will patiently wait.. First

    • tjhrulz

      Remember this is not all of them 

    •  Yeah this only shows a few wisconsin cities but their whole list is like 30 long

      • TJ

         where is the complete list?  I live in Appleton and we should get 4G before Wisconsin craphole Dells

  • Shimmy

    Finally for Dayton 🙂

    • Andrew Hewitt

       D-Y-T til I D-I-E baby WOOP WOOP!!!!

  • greg

    So this will be another day and a half of no 4g data for current users? EVERYtime they launch new networks, the current ones go down.

    Oh. First btw.
