  • When will Oceanside, Vista, Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook and Carlsbad get 4G LTE? most of carlsbad only has expanded coverage and not true Verizon 4G LTE. It’s shocking how slow the San Diego expansion is going. Whoever the contractor is in San Diego county, they are amateur. Other counties like Orange, Los Angeles, and Riverside have been built out much faster with better coverage.

  • Still waiting in Oceanside, CA! They are taking forever to build out Southern California! Really, Hemet and Lake Elsinore have coverage before Oceanside???

    • chelsey

      actually hemet doesnt have it!

      • joseph

        Hemet has it as of today. 26 SEP 2012.

    • Korey Page

      They have 4G. I had it this past weekend when I was down there. Well I had from williamsburg down to hampton so I dont know about across the water

        My understanding is that they are doing testing and that the signal keeps getting turned on and off.  It hasn’t officially launched, or if it has Verizon hasn’t said anything official about it.

        I’m on the VA Beach side of the water if that matters any.

    my best friend’s mom makes $78 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7587 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here HardRich.com

  • I think they switched it on briefly last week in Kansas City. I happened to look down and see the 4G icon on the notification bar, it was there for maybe a minute max.

    Hey, All the people in Kansas City can quit whining now.  Just kidding.  I am surprised it took this long to get 4g there.

    Glad Lincoln is getting some love.  FYI Nebraska is abbreviated NE not NB.

  • trumpet444

    Its about freaking time Virginia!

  • dr2703

    Appleton WI is getting 4G and granted they have the states largest mall, but UW Oshkosh is the third largest university in WI. Kids here would benefit greatly from faster speeds! When does the rest of the Fox Valley see the love??

      appleton is massive business wise. colleges don’t need faster phone speeds. you have wi-fi anywhere you are on campus and it’s usually just as fast as 4g anyway. most of the cities with 4g are major business cities.

      • dr2703

        If you have used UWO’s wi-fi, you would realize it is spotty and not reliable. Appleton has a lot of businesses, granted but Oshkosh is no slouch in the business segment. My thoughts are they started in Green Bay(Lambeau) and are working their way down the 41 corridor. Hopefully it will be here for Nexus time!

        • odfo

          My 4g icon just lit up today, so it looks like they are working their way down 41!!

    YES! Lexington is getting LTE. This only makes me more likely to get the Nexus Prime.

  • Anewbreedx008x

    Got 4g lte here in Richmond VA had it constantly for 2 weeks as well as the tri-cities chesterfield Petersburg Hopewell ect. Surprised its not on the list, though
