Verizon Announces Dozens of New and Expanded 4G LTE Markets for April 19

Verizon started rattling off their next wave of 4G LTE markets that are either going live or expanding their reach on April 19. The list is pretty massive, many of which we covered a week or so ago. Today’s list expands on that list though, showing Big Red’s never-ending quest to take LTE to every area that already has access to their 3G.

We have a feeling that this list may continue to grow over the next couple of hours, so be sure to check back for updates. For now, jump past the break and see if you town is listed. And yes, I said “town” since VZW is working hard to cover the smaller markets as well.

  • peggsie

    Finally got 4G in Summerfield, FL. I’m about 20 miles south of Ocala.

    Yet, Flagstaff, Arizona isn’t on the list —- :(

  • http://www.facebook.com/minvisesolutions Mike Lierman Invise-Solutions

    Utah- Provo all the way up to Salt Lake already had some 4G coverage, but I’m very excited about the extending coverage from Provo to Orem, this includes my little town of Lindon which borders Orem! Sweet!

  • aharrson

    Shafted in NJ….ironically just outside one of the wealthiest counties in the country…they don’t have 4G either..

  • Joshlewis87

    At least most of you are close to 4G markets… I live in Billings, MT and the closest 4G coverage is 400 miles away. We are the largest city in a 4 state region and we wont have it for another couple of months. Main reason is there are so many miles to travel between towers from 4G areas.

  • Sean Bello

    still no more CT…ugh.

  • Guma822

    Long Island shafted again, all those New York locations and not one of them for me, half of Long Island still has no LTE. Thats only a COUPLE MILLION people, no biggie

  • clockblocker

    The lady pictured in this holding 2 iphones will be wondering why she can’t get 4g service come Thursday.

  • Jonathantheunicorn

    Hey, Verizon, if you hear me, please do Valdosta, Georgia. Thanks.

  • ScottyByrd

    Yay for Robins AFB getting LTE

  • Drewgy

    Still no Connecticut I-95 corridor love….

    WTF Verizon?  Why aren’t setting up 4G in Ventura County, esp. the Oxnard Plain?  The 101 freeway runs right through it.  We have over 850,000 people living here with a median household income in excess of $75k, and still can’t get any 4G love…what is the criteria; population density?

    about time idaho is getting some expanded coverage but hopefully more expanded coverage though

  • mike

    WHAT ABOUT MYRTLE BEACH  SC

  • Wind

    Are a lot of these smaller market areas getting 4g due to regional carriers? I know in Easter KY Appalachian Wireless is supposedly setting up 4g and verizon is going to bounce of of theirs. 

  • Rip32city34

    Still no CT

  • mustbepbs

    Still no f***ing love for NH.

  • Droid_Dude

    Come on Verizon, connect the dots and give me 4G already! You have it in Bakersfield and Los Angeles, I’m in the Antelope Valley which has over 300,000 people and sits between these two cities and no 4G love yet. Make it happen!

  • mikeym0p

    So much in New York, so little in New Jersey :(

    • CORYK333

      Damn right…..oh, you were talking about 4g coverage :)
      -kidding aside, i live in NYC & do work/travel in Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, NYC, & western Jersey. It SUCKS having 4G everywhere i go except Jersey & a few parts of bumblefuck Suffolk County, so hopefully they get that coverage up to par ASAP

  • Tom

    The Illinois area is some out of the way place. It’s NW of the Shawnee National Forest. It looks very rural on a map. I wonder why they chose to expand there.

  • http://whitemarket.freeforums.org/ Avery Dejuan Herron

    Can we get Jackson, Mississippi already!

  • Supaj69

    Still need Eugene, Oregon. It’s the second largest city in Oregon. GO DUCKS!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=9407754 Will Fry

    my home town, Union City, TN, was supposed to have it before the start of 2012 and still does not, even though the two neighboring towns that were announced the same day do.
    most of those new towns in TN are on the outskirts of the nashville coverage area, so most of middle TN will now have it, west TN is still in the dark.  I understand that the population in west TN is smaller but still.

  • Go Hawkeyes

    Verizon LTE Coverage Decision Maker 1:  Should we provide LTE coverage to a market of 120k people just outside Kansas City, MO with a simple expansion of the existing Kansas City LTE network?

    Verizion LTE Coverage Decision Maker 2:  Nah, lets provide coverage for this insignificant town of a couple thousand in the middle of Kansas instead.

    • unstableapps

      Living North of Hays I couldn’t be happier they went with option #2 :P

  • artsr2002

    Damn, Tennessee! Get some 4Geeess! LOL

    You know there’s this little state called CA that has plenty of 4G in the desert, and yet here in Ventura County still no 4G.  

  • Tim Buchanan

    Wow, once again nothing for CA.

    • sam

      They just had a big roll out for CA only last week.

      Though still no coverage for Ventura county :-(

      • Tim Buchanan

        Ya dude, that’s where I’m at.  Ventura county getting nothing. :-(
        First world problems, man.

  • Chris Hollenbeck

    Why am I getting the feeling that my area will be last….

  • Driddy

    Still no love for Maine… What gives Verizon?

  • Mike

    start showing connecticut some love…northeast is the bread and butter of all carriers…

    plus not having the route from boston to nyc covered is kind of lame

    • Rip32city34

      We have 4g in New Haven…but really who wants to go there lol

  • Jason

    And the Oregon suckage continues.  Thanks Verizon!  

  • AboveTheClouds

    I have been getting reliable 4G coverage in Los Alamos, NM for a couple of weeks now. Before that it was 3G only.

  • bakdroid

    Surprised they have not stated that Lancaster, York, and the I-83 corridor (from Harrisburg to York and points south) are turned on.  The latter 2 have been on for over a week and the first has been on for about a month.

    Tyler is showing up on and off in TX.  Amazing speeds for sure. 30 miles out from there, but often enough in town.
