We have been hearing from folks around these areas that some are already seeing 4G LTE turned on. Are you going to be one of Verizon’s new 4G LTE customers?

  • jerry

    Whys the 4g drops in and out in vero beach

  • daryle barden jr

    I need HELP! When 4G came to my town I immediately switched my Galaxy Nexus to 4G. Well it only keeps a connection for about 3-4 minutes tops. Thought it was my location or that its new to the area. Not! My sister’s LG Lucid doesn’t lose a connection at all. I’m unlocked, rooted, and running Pete’s BB. Would that have anything to do with it?

  • nessa

    they turned lte on in san bernardino a week ago, getting 30-45 down and 15-20up. ive already used like 10gb data from speed tests already within a week hehe ๐Ÿ˜€ yay 4 speed and unlimited.

  • Brian Trahan

    I live in Lafayette LA and have been getting 4G off and on for about a week now. Decent speeds (10 mb average). Now that it is officially launched today I can’t get any 4G, figures.

  • Still no 4Gs here in Vero Beach, FL even though we’re on the list of new cities.

  • Trevor-kai Craig

    We are up in the Charleston/ Mattoon area!!!!

  • nightscout13

    SWEET. Now lets improve the bandwidth.

  • Jack Holt

    Kalispell, Bozeman/Livingston, and Missoula have been turned for a bit. About two days after your first article on it. I wish it would come to Billings already.

  • quiklives

    Hilarious. My current town is in this batch, as is the crappy little town I grew up in.

    Edit: this is only remarkable because they’re several states apart, it’s not like I moved 15 miles from home.

  • Buckgrad

    They just turned 4G on South of Miami in Cutler Bay!! Yes!!

  • numbskill

    Redlands CA! Finally

  • Brandon Jackson

    What does it mean to expand a 4g market?

    • RobMorris

      Add another tower in basically the same place. Hopefully shooting that 4g outwards a little further and decongest/speed up the areas network.

  • Jeff Jopling

    I have had 4g in Monroe, la for at least two months, well I should say my galaxy nexus is indicating I’m getting 4B. I still haven’t seen anything saying we have service.

  • tc ce

    Florida Treasure Coast also lit up last week. I have had 4G in Port Saint Lucie , Martin County, and Jupiter all starting last Friday.

  • 1ofdakoolkidz

    Again Verizon, New Jersey is your home state what gives.

    • RobMorris

      You guys should have thought about your 4g before you let snookie live

      • 1ofdakoolkidz

        I’m in South Jersey it’s like a whole different state.

  • Tom

    Interesting, I’m in Bellingham, WA right now, and my Galaxy Nexus has a pretty 4G connection.

    • Chris Hollenbeck

      Also in Bellingham. My phone has had spotty coverage for the past week and a half. 1X, 3G, 4G, and then no data at all at times. I have been only getting solid 3G today. I hope the bugs are cleared up tomorrow…

  • David Powell

    4g live as of 1pm est in Muncie, Indiana

  • Trevor

    I love reading these posts. Verizon is so ahead of its competitors when it comes to LTE coverage.

  • RoadsterHD1

    What about Victorville California, where my daughter lives.

  • daryle barden jr

    Yes!!!!! Finally 4G in Goldsboro, NC

  • RoadsterHD1

    Is this causing more data drops and inconsistencies?

  • So excited to finally get 4G in Muncie tomorrow!!!

  • RW-1

    kinda cool to see my area is expanding, I didn’t see activity on the tower nearest my home, but will check out the new coverage map when available …

  • Silver Veloz

    I hope I’m part of the expanding Los Angeles area. 4G is just a few short miles away from me. I utilize my own wireless connection at home, but when I’m running around town, it would be nice. I do scan around to see who has wireless and I have been getting bold and asking restaurants, stores, etc their wireless passwords. Some will give it out just by asking. Generally, if you are a regular at their business, they seem to have no problem. And no, I don’t give them out to other people (I usually just key it in once and don’t even remember it or write it down).

  • baldypal

    In Columbus ga we got our 4g at end of June.

  • trbasil

    Finally going to get some 4G love, with the pure crap 3G that is in my area (200-300kb down and 40-60kb up) my phone will be worthwhile and less frustrating to use again.

  • I’m up in northern Minnesota (Thief River Falls). According to Verizon’s 4G coverage map, the closest places to me that should have 4G are Fargo ND, St. Cloud MN, and Duluth MN, but I’ve been enjoying 4G since last Wednesday. They flipped the switch 2 days after I got my GS3 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • ntengineer

    I would like to see them fix the LTE markets instead of expanding so fast. I have a D4, my wife has a Razr… I’ve also had a Stratosphere and a Revolution. All have the same problem. The 4g stops working. Still have signal, just no data going through.
    I’ve talked to the Verizon telephone reps about this, and they “don’t know of any problems.” So I was driving past a Verizon store the other day, and decided to go in and complain. The person I talked to was very nice, and actually admitted that not only is Verizon aware of the issue with no 4g data, but he has the problem all the time on his Razr. He said they have crews working on the problem, but it seems that the concentration is more on expanding than solidifying.
    He also told me that when Verizon upgrades an area to 4G, they don’t do all the towers but just enough to get “coverage”. That is why I get 2-3 bars of 4g, and 5 bars of 3g. I’ve had to turn off 4g and use my D4 on 3g because of the constant drops.

    • World.wide.Wes

      I had the same problem too sometimes with my thunderbolt running cm7 I’m about to try new radios. I know what you mean when you say it says it has service but no data will upload or download. I live just outside 4G coverage in SD so hopefully I’ll be covered better tomorrow!

  • sog805

    Finally have LTE in Oxnard, CA. Had it for about 3 weeks now. I guess that is the “expanded LA” market they are referring to.

  • I’ve noticed the 4g showing up on my phone at home. Funny thing is the name of the area where I live. It’s close, but not really. The area listed is actually the smaller (in size and population) by a considerable amount. I think it’s one of those…. “We’ve always called it this so we’ll continue to call it that” things….

    Oh well. Viva la 4G!

  • wickets

    Punxsutawney…….yayyyyyy Phil can send his winter predictions faster now

  • shaun.ober

    Any yet still playing the waiting game in MN. why does Montana need 4g?

  • romma

    About time New London!! Maybe now I’ll upgrade…

  • Jason Purp

    New York gets absolutely no love whatsoever

  • duke69111

    I wonder how Verizon is determining what cities and when they will get 4g. I know most of the bigger cities were first , but what about the smaller ones. How are they deciding when they will get it?

  • cowdog

    Bozeman, Woot! Of course I don’t yet have an LTE capable phone …

    • k_nivesout

      It’s not that fast yet anyway, highest speeds I’ve seen according to speedtest (which seems inflated) are around 8-9mbps. More often than not in the 4-5mbps range. Oh and it doesn’t seem like the general campus area is covered yet..

  • Slimey

    Been seeing 4G in Brenham, TX for a week now.

  • It’s already been expanding up 116 near Peoria IL. There is now fringes of 4G as far as Germantown Hills.

    • I work along 116 in an older all brick building. I had one bar of 4G last week and three bars this week. Oddly enough I have WiFi wherever I am so I hardly ever use 4G.

  • gardner1045

    4G in Rocky Mount, Nashville, NC has been on since Saturday!

    • Lucky Armpit

      I didn’t notice it until Sunday afternoon (I’m in Rocky Mount as well). I’m getting 10 Mbps down/1 Mbps up at my house. That’s just as fast as my cable connection!

      • gardner1045

        Yeah I noticed it late Saturday night,whenever I am at home my phone is connected to my wifi, but later on that night I noticed we had 4g..my initial test were in the 10 mbps / 1.5 Mbps up.

    • Lucky Armpit

      Yup, I’m in Rocky Mount too but I didn’t see it until Sunday afternoon. I’m getting 10 Mbps down/1 Mbps up at my house, which is just as fast as my cable connection. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Guest

    Still no rural Minnesota. Dammit, I want 4G at the cabin!

  • Dave

    Finally bringing it to the Space Coast in Florida where I work!

  • The people at my verizon store made it seem as though LTE would be lightning up in napa, Heres hoping because its already in American canyon.

  • mplacido9

    I’m in the Vero beach/Melbourne Florida area and I still haven’t seen any 4g. Hopefully it turns on tomorrow.

    • scrub175

      Hutchinson island went live last Friday. Loving 4G on my iPad…

  • gimlet72

    I wish they would expand by me. I can get 4g like 4 blocks from my house but I cannot get it at home.

  • 1MPR0BUS

    Still no South Eastern PA. GODDAMNIT!

    • bigdav1178

      I have finally begun seeing 4G popping up a few times around the Reading area within the past couple days – nothing steady and consistent, but my phone was still picking up a signal at times. Hopefully that means it’s in testing and going live soon.

  • NemaCystX

    Oh and to the guy that said the areas where Jim Thorpe/Lehighton/Wilksbarre, PA wouldn’t get it, I say this. Blah To you!

  • Rutland/Bennington should cover the rest of Vermont with Burlington already having 4G. Now I won’t lose service snowboarding!

  • AntiNorm

    Still no Charlottesville, VA? *#@$*(&*#%*

    • Yea I don’t get it. Waynesboro has 4G before Charlottesville ! What the hell. Now Lynchburg and Winchester are getting it.

    • kniceguy

      Seeing these posts has gotten so frustrating for that reason alone. It was supposed to be here first quarter officially which means last year unofficially. So frustrating.

  • I live in Zanesville, Ohio and we’ve had 4g for a few weeks now. As soon as I saw the logo on my Bionic I looked online and couldn’t find when they turned it on.

  • NemaCystX

    Gettysburg, PA has on and off 4G LTE so it might be part of the next batch of markets to go live next month

  • After having upgraded to a S3 via Verizon (yes I know, FML) I was surprised just how crappy of 4G coverage I seem to receive in the D.C. area. Similarly my gf upgraded to a S3 via AT&T and I’m floored by her ability to receive a full signal no matter where we go…

  • mofoliar

    Damn, i was hoping for Chico,ca to get turned on… I am waiting so patiently.I heard july but I am thinking August

  • Thank god. Expansion in ft Lauderdale. I’m literally 50 yards from coverage

  • Too bad that @HTC and @Verizon don’t have the same focus on updating the operating system on my #HTC Thunderbolt … which will cost them a customer in a couple of months

  • well 4g as been expanded in the auburn ,ny area, finally get 4g at my house, and i live a bit outside the city, but the funny thing is my thunderbolt gets 4g, but my nexus still on 3g

  • mustbepbs

    Still nothing in New Hampshire. We’ve got some coverage in the southern part of the state, but nothing central. Anger!

  • I’m jealous of these launches. I’m on Sprint, and not in one of their initial LTE markets. I hope they can rollout as fast as VZW has done, I have been impressed with their speed.

    Granted, not impressed enough to change carriers (I am poor ๐Ÿ™ ) but still…my area got Verizon LTE a few months ago, and other than T-Mo’s HSPA+ that’s the first expansion I’ve seen here in a while.

  • zepfloyd

    Hasn’t Bennington VT had 4G for a while already?

  • YES. Muncie gets it right before ball state starts school. Awesome.

  • Bionicman

    I like in the Riverside CA area and my 4G has gotten so much better in the past 2 weeks. I used to get 1-2 4G bars in my home before but now im getting full bars!

  • storm35x

    Logan utah Already has 4G turned on. Its been up since Saturdayof last week

    • It’s extremely solid. I was mad that Blackfoot, Idaho got LTE before us, but it’s nice to have it now.

  • Jeromeh

    We’ve had 4G in Logan for a little over a week now. It is glorious!

  • Jesus. A town 45 miles north of me has had 4G literally since the initial rollout from Verizon.
    They’ve since moved not even a centimeter south.
    A town with 5,000 population has LTE and I don’t.
    And I’m not on the above list either.

    I’m jelly.

  • sbcadguy

    I live in Colton, CA and I finally got verizon 4g turned on last week. My office in Redlands, CA finally got 4g coverage this week.

    • Brian

      Yup in loma Linda and finally got it


    Verizon CEO: the faster we expands our 4G LTE markets, the faster people will use up their 2GB of shared data and have to pay for extra. MOAR MONIES FOR ME. Mwahahahha… MWAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAA

    • Exactly..

    • Phil Onyschuk

      Cheap ass!

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Not sure why folks still think that the network being faster has anything to do with using more data. . . . how much data you use is all on you.

      • Not sure how you don’t get it… how much are you going to download if you are on a really slow network?

        Say you’re trying to watch a youtube video, and it’s taking forever to load. Eventually you’re going to give up, say screw it.

        On the other side of the coin… say you’re on a REALLY fast network (4G) watching youtube, and your video loads and you’re immediately watching with no buffering, or any other waiting. You finish your video, and suddenly a friend says “Oh wait, I’ve gotta show you this one” and you watch another…. and another.

        Seems to me like if I have a fast network, I’m going to be using a lot more data.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          You just made my point. What you just explained has NOTHING to do with verzion. Read my last line again. “How much data you use is all on you”

          • No, how much data I use is VERY related to the network I’m connected to. If I don’t have 4G, I’m going to use LESS data. And when you’re on a faster network, you don’t realize how much data you’re really using.

            How hard is this to understand? Seriously. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see the relationship between speed and amount of data being used.

          • LionStone

            His point still stands…doesn’t matter how fast your speeds are…ultimately you are responsible to keep track of it…granted of course you are on a limited data plan.

          • NemaCystX

            The faster speeds are like bait to get you to use more data

          • Basically what you’re saying is the equivalent of saying “Just because you can travel faster, doesn’t mean you will travel farther.” when we all know that you will travel farther in one day using a car, than you will if you had to walk everywhere.

          • scotty2hotty

            Yea but now your turning it around on Verizon when your original post had nothing to do with it being verizon or not Verizon’s fault. You said why do folks think they’ll use more data just because its faster. Now your turning it around. Of course how much data one uses is their own choice. But that has nothing to do with using more data because of faster speeds. Faster speeds means quicker loading, higher definition pictures, videos, websites, apps. Which all account for higher data usage. If your doing something a .05mbps its going to take you 5 minutes compared to one minute at 10mbps. Therefore you’ll end up doing more and using more data. Even a speedtest will consume 5x the amount of data within one test.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            I’m not turning it around. I was responding to the first poster who was blaming verizon… Which is why I said “How much data you use is all on you”

          • vzwemp

            If you watch netfix on 3g it streams in standard def 200-250mbph but on 4g it auto adjust to HD at up to 4gbph. Web and email doesn’t change be it much but quality of the video makes a big difference.

      • NemaCystX

        It actually does, because you can use up data faster. Its like an addiction kinda, you know you have incredible speeds and you’ll want to do stuff you couldn’t before on a 3G connection. Hence the building data addiction

        I usually would only consume around 1.6GB a month, now I’m consuming around 3.8GB

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Why are folks say this like its a bad thing LIke Everyone rathers they were still on 3G? Lol . . . I mean come on. Your data is faster so you’ll WILLINGLY use more data… It’s your responsibility to not go over… Verizon isn’t forcing your hand…. They are giving you a better service

          • NemaCystX

            Unfortunately while thats true, its also VERY easy to go over your limit because of those speeds

          • But Verizon IS forcing everyone off of unlimited. Which is why I won’t sign another contract with Verizon.

          • Stewie

            where do you get willingly? I’m not saying that we want to stay on 3G, but figure it out – if you were on 3G because you don’t get 4G, your useage overall would be less because the speed at which you sip that data down, it would take you longer to get to your “limit”.
            The idea presented sarcastically is that by going to 4G you WILL go through your limit much faster than you think you will.
            VZ has nothing more at heart other than to make $$$ at users expense, you can bring forth all sorts of service arguements, but if you think they are doing it JUSt to improve our experience, then your nose is getting longer as you think it. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Always rolls back to the same issue… If you want faster speeds and better quality from Apps that use Data… It’s your option to use 4G and burn though your data… the fact that Verizon limits your Allotment monthly not has nothing to do with how you choose to use your data…. If you still have unlimited fine… if you don’t you know how much data you have and if you go oVer… it has nothing to do with Verizon.

          • TROLOLOL

            @Good_Ole_Pinocchio: So if you’ve got an hour to kill while waiting for something (the bus, your friend, etc.) and decide to BROWSE the web. This means browsing for the entire one hour period. YOU ARE GOING TO USE MORE DATA USING 4G THAN 3G.

            But seems according to you, that everyone with time to kill should 1. Turn off LTE for the duration of waiting or 2. Put the phone back in your pocket after you’ve perused the same amount of articles that you would have using a 3G connection.

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            Perfect example of THE CHOICE you have to use your data. The network being faster is a plus…you burning through your data is the CHOICE you make. Which goes back to my original point that blowing through your data has nothing to do with Verizon.

        • i usually consume around 5 to 6gb but with my nexus 7 and unlimited 4g tethering i’m fixing to bend Verizon over

          • Anthony B

            I feel the same way. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Got my nexus 7 and streaming Netflix in full quality humm 40mbps charter or Verizon 4g ………………..wahahaha Verizon 4g

        • Adam Brandt

          same here…as I ride around on the train, it would take longer to say, load a webpage, or buffer a video. Now that it’s faster, it’s all almost instantly, thus allowing me to load more web pages and watch more videos in the same time on the train as before

      • sc4fpse

        A lot of applications (read: Netflix) will automatically detect your network speeds and adjust settings (playback quality) appropriately to optimize performance, many times without any user-adjustable settings for this sort of thing. On 3G, lower quality and lower data usage. Trying to do the same thing on 4G then results in different (automatic) settings, and therefore higher data usage.

        So, no. You’re wrong.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Once again my point gets proven…. IF you don’t want Netflix giving you a much better picture quality then turn your 4G radio off… and Enjoy the data sipping 3G lol . . . It’s all your own choice. If you want a better quality picture… use more data over 4G.

          • sirmeili

            What happens when they turn off 3g? eventually they will no longer want to support the old network. Even then, does the average user KNOW that they can go back to 3g?

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            The point is it’s all in your own hands how much data you choose to use… that’s all.

      • scotty2hotty

        How can you think it doesnt mean people will use more data?? Of course its has alot to do with 4G and faster speeds. I barely use any data because I’m on 3g only here an I’m better off on wifi. But as soon as 4g is here ill sure be eating up much more data monthly. I won’t have to connect to wifi everytime I wanna watch a video or whatever. So yes more data will be used by myself and others

        • LionStone

          And once again…it is YOUR choice to use it up. I can just hear you guys tell the cop that pulled you over for speeding, “it was my cars fault because it was so tempting to use that throttle!” He he ๐Ÿ™‚

          • sirmeili

            That would only be true if I could truly throttle my 4g. I can’t. So your example fails. It’s not like my car always goes 100mph and it’s up to me to only travel 50 miles a day. In my car I can adjust how fast/far I go by adjusting the speed at which the car moves.

            Take netflix for example, on 3g (which eventually Verizon will retire), on a faster connection, it uses more data than on a slower connection. Last I checked you can’t adjust the quality in the netflix app. It downloads at the best quality it can on the connection it has.

          • LionStone

            Wrong, as of now, you can throttle 4G, by dropping it down to 3G. Last I checked you can still do this which gives you a choice, just like it’s your choice to open up the Netflix App and watch a movie. It’s about assuming the responsibility as a user, which you fail to accept.

          • sirmeili

            And how many “normal” users know they can do this? How many know that a movie on 4G through netflix takes more bandwidth than one on 3g? What happens when they drop 3g? From today on, we will consume more and more data through the internet.

            Oh, and I don’t have to accept it, I’m on an unlimited plan and I will keep it as long as possible. And just so you know, i’m pretty responsible with my data. When I’m home (which is about 95% of the time since I work from home), I am connected to Wifi instead of 3g/4g. Better battery life and faster data. Then again, I’m NOT the average user.

      • PC_Tool

        …because people are stupid when it comes to speed and entitlement.

        Even though 8 hours of songs is the same MB over wifi, 3G and 4G, they seem to be under the impression they’ll download more songs in that 8 hours over 4G than over 3G….and they hate using Wifi…because they’re stupid.

        …or worse, just because they can download *faster*, they suddenly feel obligated to download *more*. Again, because they are stupid.

        it’ pretty much the answer to any question of why people think the way they do. ..because people are stupid.

        (They aren’t actually stupid, they just don’t bother putting any effort into thinking about what they are doing, and perception equals reality. Not thinking by choice appears the same as not thinking due to inability.)

    • 1MPR0BUS

      What the Verizon CEO doesn’t realize is all the people grandfathered in to unlimited who will run devices in their house off of their Rooted and Tethered 4G phone. Jokes on them ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Yeah, thanks for being part of their reason for my losing Unlimited in the future. Appreciate it.

        • Diablo81588


        • Andrew Wegand

          We pay for it so why not use it… Seems stupid that because you don’t that other people shouldn’t?

          • Hothfox

            For Pete’s sake, it’s part of your contract. The data plan is for the phone only. Yes, it’s stupid, but you signed the contract.

          • Ron

            I do use it on my phone.. with video/flash streaming, spotify offline sync, newsgroups, etc. I use up ~15GB per month without tethering and using my phone for what a modern 2012 “phone” should be used for.

            I think it’s stupid, too, that Verizon only wants us to use the data plan on the phone. I’m just saying that it’s written into your contract that the data plan is for the phone only. If you want to share data between the phone and a computer, you should technically be on a shared plan, and purchase an air card for the computer. Again, stupid, but that’s how it’s supposed to be, so it always irritates me when people use the “WELL I’M PAYING FOR IT, SO I’M GOING TO USE IT AND THERE’S NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO ABOUT IT” argument.

            Which isn’t to say I don’t tether from time to time >.> (and yes, this means I’m violating my contract and they can technically terminate it)

          • JoshGroff

            Actually, you would need to add mobile hotspot to your phone plan if you want to get technical.

        • Cowboydroid

          Lol, you pay for unlimited data. The percentage of people that actually do what he said is miniscule. Certainly not enough to put any “extra burden” on the network.

          You losing unlimited data has to do with carrier greed. Nothing else.

  • Darth_Imperius

    Still don’t have it launching around me, Super Sad Face!

  • Burley ID, has had it for 3 weeks now,

  • I really hope thats antelope valley california!!!!!!!!!!

  • They wont be expanding towards my area of Columbus Ohio, because they continually deny that the 4G service is no longer there.. ๐Ÿ™ Sad face..

    • Smashcat

      Really? I get 3-4 bars of VZW 4G at home in Hilliard, at work in Dublin, and at my parents’ house in Upper Arlington. Used to work out by the airport and it was decent there too.

    • Only place in Columbus that I know of with poor 4G is Canal Winchester

  • Still no NW Minnesota love. ๐Ÿ™

  • August

    DAMMIT! Everyone around me now. Even towns with 1/4 the population. This is getting ridiculous

  • NOPE, no love for us folks in South GA….

    • We have Savannah?
      And most of Hinesville has 4G as well ๐Ÿ˜€

      • OhAaron

        Don’t forget Brunswick. They need to cover Camden.

      • I live in the middle…ain’t no 4G over here…

  • Michael

    It says that it’s turning it on in Manhattan Ks but we’ve had it for a good week

  • Ugh this means my Dad who lives near Missoula Mt. will have 4G before I get it in La Crosse, WI. I’m an IT pro and a phone geek. There is no way this is fair.

  • TomMabe

    I’m in a 4G area and my friend gets 3-4 Bars of 4G while the Nexus only manages 2-3 bars of 3G. Terrible Samsung radios. I hope they let HTC or Motorola make the next Nexus

    • Derp

      I’m glad you thought it necessary to complain about that. Everyone has already forgot about that phone.

      • Jacob

        Is someone just upset that they ordered a Verizon Galaxy SIII with a locked bootloader?

        • I dnt see how he’s putting down the S3 or even mentioned it. I am a proud owner of an S3 and im pulling 17-20 down and 12-16 up when on 4G. Not mad at that at all !!

          • NemaCystX

            he’s putting down the Nexus…

          • We know that, but @664cf80e8fc8a9c458335dacaf006ec1:disqus turned his nexus put down into a s3 put down which ddnt go with what @141f742ffcf3bcd304f480e05581309f:disqus was talking about.

      • TomMabe

        Thats great that it’s more accurate but doesn’t help that I’m sitting on 3G speeds and the Razr is enjoying great 4G speed.

    • qmartman711

      True Story.. I compared the download speeds against my co-worker’s HTC Mecha/Thunderbolt…and he easily had 3-4megabits more than me.

    • David Cosme Jr.

      I don’t think conectivity is the issue. I remember something about the phones reporting “truer” signal strengths, but both phones would have about the same ability to connect.

    • NemaCystX

      I think its related to how the Galaxy Nexus shows its signal rating on the statusbar, I get a connection with zero bars but the real signal strength is in the settings>About menu where you can view it in dB, Its something that was never really fixed.

      I compared the Galaxy Nexus and my friends GS3 and he had 2 bars while I had zero but our signal strengths were the same in dB

      The signal bars are a lie lol

    • Chris Gustafson

      I don’t care if Samsung makes the next Nexus, but if it’s on Verizon, it better have Qualcomm radios. Because Samsung makes the worst CDMA/LTE radios in the industry.

  • flagstaff

    no because i live in shity flagstaff az :/

  • Mike

    What does expansion exactly mean?

    • moelsen8

      wondering the same thing. does verizon have any maps anywhere to show what they mean by expansion?

      • network4g.verizonwireless.com/#!/coverage/map
        Probably won’t update until the expansion is official.
        I.E. Tomorrow.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Expanding service in a particular area . . . not sure what’s so confusing about that to be honest.

      • moelsen8

        yeah, it was more so a question of how much.

    • NemaCystX

      It means if the area already officially launched its just expanding its reach into those areas. For example: Hagerstown, MD is about 26 miles from Chambersburg, PA, when it expanded, they said “Hagerstown, MD/Chambersburg, PA” for expanded markets when they announced it was expanding its reach.

      Hope that helps

      • moelsen8

        yeah that does. 26 mile radius is what i’d think of as a pretty big expansion.

    • Michael Forte

      Well I used to not get 4G at my house and now I do and my area is one of the expansions.

  • Greg Morgan

    Say what you want about VZW, and I have, but they are fast at rolling this out. Just wish my 4G in Seattle didn’t suck, can’t get more then 6mps.

    • Trevor

      I’m hoping that’s the next step of the 4G rollout. Once they blanket the nation by 2013 or whenever that’s supposed to be, hopefully they’ll work on beefing it up a bit in areas already covered with 4G.

  • getting closer to my part of central pa.

  • I like how they say “going live tomorrow” when Missoula, MT 4G has been up since last Monday afternoon…

  • Northwoods of Wisconsin still waiting on 4g

    • Kyle

      I live 35 minutes north of Milwaukee and still don’t have it!

  • beyeg

    4G/LTE has been on in Whitefish and Kalispell, Montana for the past 2 weeks – and it is great!

    • NewAge

      And Missoula. Though the range is pretty weak. Its great in some areas but not in others, like my apartment. I hope I don’t have to wait for an “expansion”. There are moments I get 4g on Xoom but Gnex is a big fu

    • k_nivesout

      Going on a couple weeks that LTE has been live in Bozeman too. Although it’s only in certain parts of town, fortunately my house gets pretty decent coverage.
