New Batch of Verizon 4G LTE Cities Goes Live on September 15

Verizon just got done lighting up a new batch of 4G LTE cities on August 18 and are already turning around to flip the switch on more.  September 15 is the day that at least 5 new areas will have access to this new super fast network that we are loving so much.  And I say “areas” because almost every major city is already covered, bringing us to well over 50% of the U.S. population.  We are now seeing batches of smaller cities get the green light.

So who is up next?  

  • Fargo, ND
  • Moorhead, MN
  • Rockford, IL
  • Moline, IL
  • Rock Island, IL
  • Bloomington/Normal, IL
  • Champaign/Urbana, IL
  • Springfield, IL
  • Mansfield, OH
  • Canton, OH
  • Lima, OH
  • Iowa City, IA
  • Davenport, IA
  • Bettendorf, IA
  • Blacksburg, VA
  • Las Cruces, NM
  • El Paso, TX
  • Wichita Falls, TX
  • Austin, TX
  • Shreveport, LA

There will likely be more, so we’ll update the post as they are announced.

    I had 4G on my charge in Richmond, VA today speed test confirms 22mbps download speed. 

  • My spouse and i ended up being so thrilled when Louis managed to deal with his survey through your precious recommendations he made out of your web page. It is now and again perplexing to just find yourself releasing tricks which often some others may have been selling. We realize we need the writer to give thanks to for this. The entire illustrations you have made, the easy website menu, the friendships you can give support to instill – it’s got most overwhelming, and it is helping our son and the family reckon that this matter is pleasurable, which is really mandatory. Many thanks for the whole lot!

  • I just paíd $22.85 for an íPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her her Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.78 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $625 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, Centb.côm

    I scrolled through expecting to be disappointed at the lack of VA coverage again, but lo and behold, Blacksburg is getting LTE. Still nowhere near me, but hey it is in the state at least.

  • Shaicroccifixio

    Theyve been testing it in Wichita Falls for about a month and its impressive.

  • WTF where is NJ already!!??

  • I and also my friends were found to be going through the excellent hints found on your site while before long developed a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the site owner for those strategies. All of the women were definitely totally very interested to learn them and have now very much been loving them. We appreciate you being really accommodating and then for selecting these kinds of really good tips millions of individuals are really needing to be aware of. Our sincere apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

  • Is it still bad to wonder why Hampton Roads and Metro Richmond, VA are getting LTE after Blacksburg, VA? Glad it’s there in time for college football, but you’re talking about leaving millions of people in fast-paced business areas out in the 3G cold so all 70k people in Canton, Ohio should get it first.

      You’re missing everything surrounding canton though. And although it’s only 70k, you’re missing the businesses in the area.

    verizon rep told me virginia beach is getting it in october this year…

  • Joe Smith

    LTE in the markets is all about availability of fiber to the cell sites…..you have to have it for LTE.  I know in Peoria, IL, Vzw has a hard time getting telco’s to put fiber to site locations…thats why that market does not and will not have it for quite some time.

  • Cjreyes666

    Finally el paso and las cruces are getting some 4g

  • Anonymous

    I just wish Verizon would fill the gaping whole of 3G coverage on the Iowa/Missouri border.  Two major interstates cross that area.  And I travel both of them frequently.  It sucks losing a data connection on the road as I listen to my favorite radio station’s app in the car via bluetooth when I can’t get a regular radio signal.

          • One Rad Dude

            From Pine Bluff to Searcy, that’s a lot of territory for an LTE market (I did hear the President of Verizon Wireless of the South Central US say there will be a lot more coverage for the LR launch than the NWA launch, and it won’t be just Little Rock and North Little Rock). I know Nashville’s market launch was very large. The same went for Oklahoma City.

    • Anonymous

      Although I wish we’d get some LTE love here, I doubt it will happen any time soon simply because Verizon will probably be pushing LTE as a replacement for wired internet once it becomes more established.  And with Google bringing in 1GBps fiber, LTE won’t be able to compete.  Plus it’s Sprint’s home.  Not that Sprint has shit for coverage in the city anyway.

  • planetes42

    Might not be the forum for this question but:

    I just started using 4g + hotspot.  When it works, it works *great*.  But, periodically (< 1 hr), the connection will completely freeze (on both the phone & connected computers).  I have to do some mix of turning on/off the phone network/rebooting/turning the hotspot on/off.  

    Has anyone else had this problem and/or know how to fix it?  Google searches are showing old forum posts that aren't particularly helpful.  Hoping you guys would know.

    • Anonymous

      Just out of curiosity, is this rooted or do you pay for the hotspot.

      • planetes42

        I am paying for the hotspot.  I am using a Samsung Droid Charge.  In the Raleigh, NC area, so the LTE network is not the newest of the rollouts and I presumed would be reasonably established by now.

    • LionStone

      Sorry you’re having issues with that…I’ve been using the hotspots on TB since day one and have no issues being tethered for hours on end. I tether to my laptop, HP mini, Tab 10.1 and anything else with no problems, either on 4G, 3G and even on 1X. Take your phone in and have them trouble shoot it and tell them to make it work for as much as your paying for the services!

      • planetes42

        Thanks.  I just bought the phone yesterday and had issues getting connected at all for a while.  Hopefully tonight I won’t see as many issues.

    I have come to expect now that maine will likely be 4G’s final destination, probably not until hours before they switch off 3G in 2012/13  haha

  • Garrett

    I’m confused as to way places like Bettendorf, IA get 4G when they have an amazing 33,000 people living there where as the area I live in has upwards of 100,000 people in an area only slightly larger with twice the population density. Also there is a State University there making it a prime ground for attracting people whom all have smartphones.

     If Verizon wants to boast about the amount of people with access to their 4G why do these tiny little area’s keep getting priority over larger areas that aren’t in BFE.

    • Garrett


    • Speedyrulz8

      Probably because they have fewer towers and they probably have a high rate of Verizon customers.

      • Garrett

        Verizon is the leading carrier in my area. I don’t have figures, just my own observation. Either way, fewer towers doesn’t make more sense. Getting an area with higher population density means adding more people to your service with the use of fewer towers (unless pop. density is so high 1 tower can’t serve an area). 

    • Anonymous

      Bettendorf, IA is one of the Quad Cities (actually 5 though), a grouping of 2 Iowa cities and 3 Illinois cities that are all jammed together.  The population of the area is about 380k.  So although Bettendorf by itself is small, the whole area is decent size.  The other cities, Davenport IA, Moline (and East Moline) IL and Rock Island IL are also on the LTE list.

      Interestingly, Iowa City is on the list but it’s connecting neighbor, Coralville is not.  I know several people in Coralville who won’t be happy if they are excluded!

      • Garrett

        That’s a similar situation where I live. Three cities pretty close together, I excluded the third one because of various reasons, it’s slightly farther away etc. But just the metropolotin population is in excess of 110,000. Your explanation definitely sheds light on the subject.

      Buffalo still has interference issues with Canada, who in some parts (like near Buffalo) are still using 700Mhz.  

      • Bullet Tooth Tony

        That’s Fort Erie… who have a waiver to not stop analog broadcasts…

        …but they don’t shut down til August 30th anyway… and Detroit has LTE, and is just as close to Canada as Buffalo — ie, a tiny river separates them.  So I no longer buy that issue.

        • Anonymous

          well you should, because that’s the official reason, but I could careless whether you do or don’t. There are parts that have gone digital, and other’s haven’t. Some have exemptions and some may never have to shut down. Considering there are international agreements that are being worked out (some public via FCC), it goes well beyond your overly simplistic conclusions.  

          • Not being an ass but what would be a solution if you know of any?

          • Anonymous

            That’s not an ass question at all, I’m certainly no legal lawyer, but the last I had heard there is an US/Canada agreement that is supposed to be worked out for the entire international border that would resolve the issue everywhere, but that could take who knows how long to actually implement. They announced an agreement on 8/1 http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2011/db0801/DOC-308822A1.pdf

            But the devils in the details, it could be bidirectional antennas, accepted interference, or just a shutdown of reallocation of LPTVs still running the space. It will probably be cleared up some time towards the end of next year. I’d bet you’ll see the eastern half of the city light up first.  

          • Thanks

          • Bullet Tooth Tony

            Just so you aren’t led in the wrong direction… 700 mhz cellular service operates from 698 mhz thru 806 mhz, which are UHF channels 52-69 to put it into TV terms.  Fort Erie’s lone analog TV channel is on UHF 41, which from lower to upper edge, is 632-638 mhz, in the 600 mhz band, not used by cellular providers at all and retained for digital TV per ATSC standards.  There is no interference.  There never was.  There never will be.  It’s totally a business decision by Verizon Wireless to not deploy here.  As far as 800 mhz goes in that FCC document, we haven’t had UHF channels 70-83 in the US since 1983.  So, there isn’t exactly anything to interfere with at all there.

          • Bullet Tooth Tony

            That’s fantastic… but it ISN’T the official reason.  Detroit… has… LTE.  So try again.  It was the *rumored* reason by people that knew Canada hadn’t yet switched off of analog TV broadcasts, and the rumor ***died*** the second that Detroit launched LTE in February, looooong before ANY Canadian station was scheduled to turn off analog broadcasts — which by the way, doesn’t occur for any Canadian station until August 31st in case you missed that memo.  Windsor, Ontario is on the other side of the border from Detroit, Windsor is a much larger city than Fort Erie… and Windsor doesn’t shut down analog until… August 31st.  So, if analog tv is an issue in Buffalo…. yet Detroit launched it in the exact same situation and hasn’t experienced any issues where a much larger population would be affected… guess what isn’t really an issue?
            Analog TV broadcasts aren’t an issue, never were an issue, and were merely a cop-out to the fact Buffalo is a dirt, dirt, dirt poor city that I happen to love… and Verizon Wireless made a business decision and overlooked it in favor of the much wealthier, yet smaller, city of Rochester.

            hahaha, I have tin foil for your hat there buddy. 

            Sorry you can’t see past your blinders/axe to grind. Did you even read my comment about not all areas being equal? Do you have any documentation or studies or plans to show modifications weren’t made to accommodate on either side of the border? Did I even specifically say TV channels (though that is the logical answer for most, but not all that part of the band)? No? Just a keyboard and a personal complaint with no facts? Ah, never mind then. But in case, hopefully you didn’t forget to read, http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2011/db0801/DOC-308822A1.pdf 

          • Bullet Tooth Tony

            Uhmm… for one thing, I don’t think you understand what wearing a tin-foil hat means or how to properly accuse someone for wearing it, because you’re the one that fits the bill here by trying to pin blame on some scary unknown boogey man in Canada.. Second, maybe you should read your own link first. That FCC document is about “mobile broadband spectrum” sharing at 800 mhz in addition to 700. Note the key words here… Mobile Broadband. This isn’t about television interference. This is agreeing that both Canada and the US – and Mexico – can operate mobile networks on the same bands. IE, Rogers can buy the same 700 mhz Block C that Verizon owns. And Telus can buy the same 800 mhz spectrum that Sprint owns… as opposed to intra-national coverage, only 1 carrier owns a set block of spectrum. This is standard business practice, and is not related to analog TV broadcasts in any way shape or form, nor does it explain how Detroit has LTE prior to the existence of this document.You want facts, here’s some undisputable facts. Detroit has LTE and is on the Canadian border. Windsor is on the other side of the river from Detroit, population 330,000, and broadcasts 4 analog stations. Buffalo does not have LTE and is on the Canadian border. Fort Erie, population 30,000, is on the other side of the river from Buffalo and broadcasts *1* analog station, CBC, on UHF 41. UHF 41 is in the 700 mhz band that is to be retained for digital TV, that is, the 700 mhz that was sold for cellular service is a totally different range than what this channels space occupies. Detroit’s LTE on 700 mhz does not affect Windsor, and you can get LTE coverage while in Windsor. You can also watch TV while in Windsor without an issue on channel 9, 16, 41 and 54. To further explain this to the neophytes, Verizon uses LTE on the Upper Block C in 700 mhz, which are former UHF channels 65 and 66. Verizon also has the rights to Lower Blocks A & B, which are former UHF channels 52 (A) and 53 (B). So…….. please assist us here Mr. Pretend Radio Engineer… how exactly does broadcasting on channels 65 and 66 interfere with channel 41 – when the 700 mhz auction was specifically done with the mhz ranges to allow for digital TV to operate from channels 2-51? And further, since obviously you know everything and I know jack shit, how does it not affect the exact same UHF channel 41, or 16 & **54**, or VHF 9, in a much larger, more densely populated city? I can’t wait to hear the engineer-y explanation on this one.

          • Anonymous

            not to be a dick or ruin anyones happy parade. But did you take any geography into account? Or where any of the broadcasts are located? That is quite important.

          • Bullet Tooth Tony

            Geography? Never been to Detroit or Buffalo, or looked at a map, have ya? Flat and flat. Location of broadcasts? They’re located IN the cities I said, and available over the air 30 miles into the USA in both locations with old fashioned bunny ears. Any other questions that are irrelevant? The UHF channels in question in no way, shape or form are channels demised by the analog tv shut down, which is what cellular providers use. Channels 52-69 in 700 mhz, and 70-83 in 800 mhz. Verizon operates in what used to be channels 65 and 66. Fort Erie has their CBC rebroadcast on channel 41.

          • hmmmmm

            Verizon spokesman John O’Malley said, “The one thing we are up against here in the Buffalo area, which is kind of unique, is we get interference from the Canadian analog television network, but that is in the process of being shut down. If it is shut down in August like it is supposed to, then we can go ahead with the rest of our preparations and go a head with 4G LTE on-the-air by the end of the year.”

          That’s exactly where I noticed it, too. Haha. I first noticed it on Friday.

            I noticed today (tuesday)the coverage goes a lot further north (just shy of hitting lohman, hopefully more and more every day!

  • Nice to see the rest of IL getting updated… I hope I can just keep a signal on Route 4.

  • Still no love for  Virginia.  And Virginia is for lovers.

      Untrue… Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax and even into Loudoun County.. all have 4G.

      • babadush

        That’s because of DC.

          Thank you Captain Obvious.

          Since you’re being so helpful, can you tell me what state or commonwealth those places are located in, and what state or commonwealth the individual whom I replied to said gets no love?

          • babadush

            Well that was nice of you. The only people who consider NoVA a part of Virginia are northern Virginians. Are you from NoVA?

          • Bullet Tooth Tony

            From NoVA?  Negative, from Buffalo and frequently go back, 6 hour drives are like nothing these days.  Work in NoVA tho, live in Fairfax County.  But I’d beg to differ on the part of Virginia part… most people in NoVA I hear speak of it; they consider it, and want it to be, a separate state.  New Dominion is the name they toss around constantly, along with adding DC, and the Maryland capital region to the mix as well.  Regardless to this, I know most people are looking for Hampton Roads… or even Richmond.  But Virginia has gotten some love.  Just not enough, would be more accurate to say.

      • Ace Thruster

        I’m still waiting for Richmond and the Hampton Roads area (Norfolk, Va Beach, Hampton, etc.)  There has been no mention of those areas at all.  

        You have to admit that there is a noticeable void in 4G coverage along the East Coast that is centered around VA.  I would have at least liked some projected dates from Third Parties when considering my next phone purchase.

        Versus the answer I got at my local Verizon Store of, “This Fall.”

    • Then why are they “Virgin-ians” LOL 😛
