Wednesday Poll: Do You Live in a Verizon 4G LTE Market?

This morning, Verizon announced that as of tomorrow, 75% of the country will be covered by their 4G LTE network. That got us thinking, “What about the Droid Life community?” We have done maps of the community before, to see what areas you all reign from, but we haven’t ever asked if you get to take advantage of Big Red’s ultra-fast network. As this rollout continues to come close to 100% of the country, we thought we’d ask to see what percentage we sit at. So tell us, are you enjoying 4G LTE? If so, for how long?

    Getting 4G for the 1st time here in Simi valley today!

  • ENigmatic

    Still no 4G in Simi valley, California.

  • Deadeye

    I live in zip 01008 and work in 01085. No coverage in either

    Nope, about 15mi out. Work is within LTE coverage though.

  • Schrodyr

    Is it really that lopsided, or do the 3g people just need a little more time to vote?

  • VZWBites

    I do but it seldomly works despite them saying I live in a good coverage area.

    LTE signal in Virginia Beach sucks.

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    Yes, and it’s the only reason I’m still with Verizon.

  • Stevo Jones

    I’m so ticked about this 4g LTE crap! I live in Simi Valley Ca. There is 4g literally all around us and they STILL haven’t seen fit to fill in this gap! 150,000 people don’t matter to them! HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WAIT! It’s pathetic when towns of 5,000 in podunk idaho are getting 4g before me!

    I had the first vzw 4g phone the thunderbolt I got on one day when they launched 4g in Boston which I believe was the first 4g city . Once u go true 4g ( not that hspa+ wimax BS) you never go back

  • S.Ober

    I do as of today the lite up Fairmont, MN finally

    Harrisburg, Pa, as well as York, and Lancaster are all lit up, so 4G coverage issues have been almost non existent. Say what you will about their other practices, but you can’t deny they’ve done THIS right

  • Curtis

    I live in Apex, NC. When I first got my GNex I did not get 4G coverage at my house. About a month ago I started receiving full coverage.

  • raymond

    Dot have it yet but Lubbock Texas is getting tested already

  • zUFC

    Yes but can’t use it!!!! can’t take batt life with it on. this is my 4th LTE phone and have probably benefitted from it 4 times. Something has to change with battery life!!!!!!! I get every new super phone that comes out just for the batt life. Do you know how hard it was to give up my GNEX? But i had to for the S3. Batt life is ten times better but still not good enough. I use phone for work. On weekends it’s alright but during the week i can’t make it through day(with any phone i have owned of late)

      I swear to got, I get worse battery life if I set my Nexus to CDMA only. When I had it on CDMA/LTE the other day, I got 14 hours of battery life with 1 hour 45 minutes of screentime in a horrible signal area. That’s a whole day. Now I’m trying CDMA-only and the battery life is worse o_O

    4G LTE came to Syracuse, NY about a month after I got my Thunderbolt. On that phone, I never really saw a significant difference in speeds on 3G versus 4G. I would get like 3Mbps on 3G and 5Mbps on 4G. Now my Galaxy Nexus gives me much better 4G speeds, though when it really comes down to it, I don’t notice the extra speed when I’m streaming.

    Parish, NY – the middle of nowhere – where my parent’s house is, still only has 3G. I doubt they’ll expand their LTE market all the way up there anytime soon.

    Hemet, CA. Nope. We sit just outside the Riverside County coverage. It would make sense if there was a clump of cities just to the east of us and were just unluckily on the wrong side of the arbitrary line they drew. But all we have are mountains to the east. So it is like they decided the carpet doesn’t need to go all the way to the wall.

    Yesterday I didn’t, but today I do!

  • bReeze512

    I get 4G at my desk at work, but my co-worker 10 feet away only gets 3G. I lol at him a lot.

  • http://twitter.com/Datalux Michael Brown

    I voted Yes, but I don’t actually have 4G LTE at home. However, all of my neighbors within a stones throw of my house do. Seems there’s about a 1/4 mile radius dead zone all around me.

  • Adam Staggenborg

    Just got 4G here about two weeks ago here in central ks

  • Michael Cook

    No LTE here Mendocino County in NW CA, from VZ, ATT or USCC.

  • Bret Farris

    I’m getting tired of having to constantly fight with getting out of 3G though. I try to switch to airplane mode and back to get 4G back but, that doesn’t work half the time so I have to reboot the phone. And about a quarter of the time that doesn’t even work.

  • Frogskins

    I’ve had 4G since June of 2011. Central PA here

    I don’t live in a 4G market, but I work full time in one.
