Cheers Tony!

  • Any update on Oceanside, CA? Wow the San Diego area is being built so slowly! What a debacle.

  • Chad

    4G is live in Ft Myers as of this morning

  • Wingrant

    Many parts of Richmond are showing 4 G as of October 1.  Cell site behind WCVE transmitter came up Friday as 4G.  Bon Air, Midlothian, most of downtown are solid 4 G signals now, but speeds vary greatly.  Looks like some work yet to be done, but hopefully kinks will be worked out by October 20, the official launch date.

    Just got a call from my husband who works in downtown Richmond, VA.  He’s had 4g on his Mifi for over an hour now.  Didn’t have it yesterday.  Yay!

    Right now, Verizon’s 4G LTE run good speed in Oceanside,CA.
    Look like Verizon just started it first time today.
    Pretty blaze speed like 36 mbps download and 8mbps upload. No kidding.

    • Still no 4G LTE in Oceanside. they must have been testing it or you caught a signal from south of the 78. No 4G LTE in 92056, 92057, 92058, 92055 and most of 92054 in Oceanside. There isnt anything north of the 78 for Oceanside or Vista or Fallbrook or Camp Pendleton. Verizon is really messing up the San Diego roll out.
