Verizon Continually Adding New 4G LTE Markets and Enhancing Others – Here is a List of 44 of Them

verizon 4g lte logo

Over the last few weeks, Verizon announced all sorts of new 4G LTE markets that will go live soon or have already. Our inbox certainly reflects these new activations, as folks from Tennessee to Kansas to Oregon have pinged us with excitement over seeing the “4G” logo for the first time on their phones. We browsed through VZW’s news release list and compiled a hefty batch of towns across the country that are either seeing service for the first time or that have been enhanced, which essentially means they have expanded into new neighborhoods. Good luck keeping up, Sprint and AT&T.

    It WOULD be nice if they had a close “switched-on” date….the 3G for my Nexus struggles but didn’t on my X.  Maybe 4G would be a welcomed sight for my little handheld buddy.

  • Jake

    Have yet to see 4G signal in Garden City, Kansas….

  • Guest

    Verizon already has 6 *TIMES* more LTE 4G coverage than AT&T.
    I wonder why that is?

  • TFuf

    VZW needs to Expand/Enhance their San Diego LTE market!!!

  • GA-Boy 32

    I knew this months ago about Macon, GA because my phone started s aying that I had 4g service about two months ago

  • Haproot

    Montana?  🙁

  • Prescott, Arizona could use an LTE market since verizon is practically the only carrier that gives the town service. 


    You’re missing Lancaster, PA in your list of new cities. Network lit up last weekend. Still a little wonky though, but hey, it’s better than EVDO!

  • kobalt7

    They need to enhance the Southern California markets. While some areas have strong 4G, simply driving down the freeway it drops to 3G, then back to 4G. It needs to be consistent

  • Jay

    what i don’t get, is they don’t list a SINGLE place in NJ, yet we just started getting 4g down here on the shore as of a few weeks ago.  why don’t they list it?

  • Show Illinois some love Verizon. Please. Specifically Mattoon, IL. Haha!

  • Drewgy

    Idaho? Idaho?? IDAHO!? What the !)(*&)

  • diamonddave242

    How the hell does Deer Park, WA get 4G and Bellingham, WA doesn’t?  

  • Unless I missed it in this list or somewhere else, you never mentioned that South Jersey around Atlantic City has had LTE coverage for about a month now.

  • Just Joe

    You know what sucks Verizon, I live between Santa Barbara (4G) and LA (4G) but I only have 3G. Who cares about half of these BFE places..!

    • balthuszar

      i’m sure the people that live there do…

  • thanks for this post!! i always kept the 4g turned off on my nexus to keep the battery from going down, but i just tried it here in northern middle TN and full bars, speedtest at 31mpbs THANKS

  • Rebel447

    What about in the middle of the country, like in Nebraska.they are more peoplw in Nebraska than freaking Idaho yet they light em up. Bullcrap, ImO!

  • fvqu

    About a week ago I finally started receiving 4G from Long Island, NY.

  • So close to Montana, dammit Verizon!

  • Lactose_the_Intolerant

    Pretty sure I got a note from VZW that read: “Dear Lac, your backwater podunk town wont be getting LTE until two weeks after Hell freezes over. kkthxbai”


    • TC Infantino

      I seriously almost sprayed coke on my keyboard when I got the the end of your post and saw the ‘kkthxbai’. 

    • Travisgary

      i got that letter too

  • OhAaron

    Brunswick? Yes! I am right in between Brunswick and Jacksonville. I am literally 1 mile above where JAX LTE ends.

  • Falexander115

    When I upgrade my phone in December I was told by the Verizon Rep to expect 4G-LTE in the Jacksonville, NC area by the end of the First Quarter. So far, nothing! Anyone out there have an update for me??

    • balthuszar

      yes, never believe the verizon reps…

  • Corey Marrier

    Got LTE last Wednesday in northern VT

  • Western New York any time soon Verizon….hello…Big Red?….anybody there?

  • not listed, but I have been (and others) getting 4G in Burlington VT for the last week or so.

    • BDFio

      Last Wednesday speed test was showing me connected to new york, NY now it shows (Mount Royal, QC) Montreal. Quebec. Rogers?? I don’t really care what it says as long as I get the speeds but kind of interesting.

    • Mark Webb

      Yes, VZW considers Burlington, Vt a “soft” launch which occurred last weekend. Not being advertised. This launch also includes Colchester, St. Albans and Rutland. I just drove from Burlington and indeed had 4G coverage as well as last weekend.

  • Sporttster

    Nope,still left out….heck, T-Mobile has faster service in my area! Ridiculous….

  • Shaun.Ober

    Again nothing in Minnesota

  • Dom Suppa

    how about 30 minutes west of your corporate headquarters you @SSHOLES!

  • Nah

    No Florida again

    • I’ve been getting 4G in Milton, FL for a week or so. They must have done something

  • Tim Rodgers

    Need More in Southern California i need 4G again going through withdrawals. 

  • duke69111

    Good to see a few extra cities in Kansas getting some 4g love.  I will also be excited to see how much farther the extended coverage stretches.  Right now it seams like its the exact city limits of Wichita and a few of the suburbs and then it dies.    

  • XIII

    Just about everywhere in MA except the North Shore….

  • Scottyb112

    Omg the whole state of TN will be covered now, but not one lick of LTE near Myrtle beach SC. Where 16+ million people travel every year, but a town of 1200 in rural TN probably has 40mbps right now.. BS Big Red. Im being such a hater right now lol

    • Sonnyrock76

      Yea I live in Conway SC. I have 2 LTE devices & still no 4G coverage. Patiently waiting.

      • Scottyb112

        Yea same here i have 2 lte phones, and still no lte. Im in pawleys island, so youll probably get it when it launches in myrtle if your closer to myrtle an CCU. Ill get shafted down here though. Too bad, i have a tower right by my house too! Ill be in Columbia this weekend, so ill be playing with my Nexus non stop cause of the 4g up there

  • Cantuckee

    the ONE positive thing to come out of Cincinnati, was early LTE networks

  • Dodge… but not Lawrence :/

  • joejoe5709

    This really isn’t amazing. I live in Eastern Washington and half of these cities are within 50 miles of each other. I’m sure it’s the same for all the other areas. You could probably knock this down to 3 to 5 markets. Not 44.

  • Ramon Toscano

    They missed Tyler TX, I’ve had 4g for like a month now. But its never been listed.

  • minuett

    Maine pines for 4g.  (heh)

  • How about northern WI?

  • whosinaname

    And once again, Montana will get 4g when 5g is released….. 

    • I absolutely GUARANTEE we’ll have 4G by 2040.  

    • Im in Polson, and hoping Missoula gets it REAL soon, im there a LOT.

  • Stsmith69

    Fort walton beach/Niceville Florida should be on this list. As well as south Crestview. All three cities finally got 4g this past week.

  • Definitely have it in the Milton-Pace area outside of Pensacola, Florida now.

  • Strange_creation3000

    What about the jersey Shore verizon

    • m0la

      i have been getting 4G signals and speeds around Brielle, Manasquan, Heights, and Belmar but no official announcement has been made about it and the Verizon website still says that the area is not covered…..

      •  Ill assume the OP meant the actual Jersey Shore and not the wanna-be area’s that you listed.

        Atlantic City has had LTE for about a month now but no farther east then Egg Harbor Twp. I get it at work but not at home here in Mays Landing. Ill assume they will expand the market to cover the rest of the shore south of us and west to connect to the western Jersey coverage from Philly before the summer with how huge the summer is for tourists.

  • unstableapps

    Verizon Wireless in Hays, KS says April 19th.

  • Guest
