New Batch of Verizon Cities Will Get 4G LTE Service on August 18

Fresh off of the July 21 first launch of 28 new 4G LTE cities, Verizon is already announcing a new set that will go live on August 18.  We haven’t received an official list yet, but from a variety of sources, we’ve started compiling one below.  We’re hearing that the total number of cities will be 116 after the 18th, making this run of LTE rollout from Verizon pretty impressive.  

*We’ll do our best to add to the list as we see cities pop up.

New Cities:

  • Council Bluffs, IA
  • Ithaca, NY
  • Syracuse, NY
  • Albany, NY
  • Fort Collins, CO
  • Provo/Orem, UT
  • Salinas and Monterey, CA
  • Bakersfield, CA
  • Omaha, NE
  • Altoona, PA
  • Johnstown, PA
  • Tucson, AZ
  • Frederick, MD

Expanding:

  • Cincinnati, OH
  • Columbus, OH
  • Rockland County, NY (Nyack, West Nyack, Orangeburg, Pearl River, & Spring Valley)
  • Metrowest, MA

Cheers Zack and Ben!

    I’ve had my Bionic since a week after it came out on th market. And still no 4G LTE coverage, the closest is a hour drive away and the rest are two or more hours away. Wondering if I’ll see it before my contract ends.

    Richmond, VA – Just bought a Droid Bionic yesterday at the Mechanicsville, VA store. 4G – LTE is working and it is fast! The girl at the Verizon Store said it is only turned on this weekend for the NASCAR race and only in the vicinity of the track – which means the store and my home are 4G. It will be switched off after the race and the entire area is supposed to be turned on October 1, 2011. This is according to the Verizon employee who sold me the Droid. I have not seen the Richmond area on any release schedule, but 4G is definitely on in a limited area – perhaps a 10 mile or so bubble.

    Hopefully the October 1 date is good. It was a pleasant surprise.

    Columbus, GA??  The biggest Verizon store in the state of Georgia is currently being built here and no sign of 4g yet.  Interesting….

  • Noreply

    I know Delaware is a small state but come on…..one 4G tower will probably serve the whole state so whats the hold up? Put one up and not have to worry about a whole state.

  • Jac_white

    Still no love for Virginia. F Verizon…

  • Tito

    Rogers, Fayetteville, Bentonville, Ar are also getting 4G August 18th. Its turned up now and has been for over a week that Ive noticed.

    How the hell does Omaha come before KC?  Are they just cranky because of the Sprint Headquarters thing?

    VA was supposed to get it, but the state troopers kept pulling over the VZW trucks coming through the state for going 5 over. :-P (bitter much? lol)

  • Brandon Smith

    Woo Frederick!

    Well damn brother, sorry to hear no 4g love yet…I knew Raleigh was up for it and I was happy about that. But I really didn’t expect Wake Forest to get it already! When I got home to the Forest today, I didn’t even bother to check…then I saw it later this evening and couldnt believe it.

  • pj

    I can’t say the same for every site they light up with 4g, but when they lit up Akron, Ohio, they lit up a huge section of Ohio. I live in a rural bfe about 20 miles from akron, and everything around us is lit in 4g. Are you guys not seeing this same pattern?

  • trumpet444

    Wow, thanks again Verizon. We Virginians apparently still stink or must have done something terrible to piss y’all off

      For real, it is getting kind of ridiculous.  This is why I don’t care too much about LTE, VA doesn’t have any and has none on the roadmap for the rest of the year.

  • Vacop81

    Yellow dots all over NC and SC.  Nothing in VA.  The markets in NC and SC are much smaller than Richmond and Virginia Beach areas.

    I live in what could possibly be considered the Provo/Orem area, but it’s actually Pleasant Grove, Utah. I wonder if they mean that it’s strictly limited to those 2 cities, or if it’s the whole valley. My TB is thirsty for some LTE!

    I as well as my pals were actually analyzing the nice items located on your web site then all of the sudden developed a terrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the website owner for those techniques. All of the guys are already for this reason joyful to read all of them and now have in reality been taking advantage of those things. Appreciate your getting really thoughtful and then for utilizing varieties of perfect resources most people are really desirous to know about. My very own honest regret for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

    I was in the Pigeon Forge TN area yesterday & I had 4G just about all the way up the interstate into Greene county. I also had it in Jefferson city & Morristown. The closest city on Verizon’s list is Knoxville

  • Odiej34

    I haven’t heard anything about Tucson, but I ran into an area on the northwest side of town last weekend that had 4G. It’s gone now but hopefully not far behind.

  • Smellygirl

    Green Bay (&Appleton) Wisconsin. We only won the superbowl last year, I think we deserve some 4g

  • Joe Nicholson

    yeah Omaha!

    of course they wont extend the LTE further to philly burbs but lets wire the ghetto and the hicks of pennsyltucky BTW Philly has some of the fastest LTE speeds ive seen yet guess they dont keep many LTE devices in the hood.

  • Rpattonny

  • Tim242
