    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?

    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 😀 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 🙂

    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!

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

  • shaun.ober
