But for example, certain areas of pennsylvania, i get basically no service, except for barely 3g/1x. So that means, there isn’t a tower close enough for me to get signal (outside). So they would have to put up more towers

This is Verizon’s push to get rid of all the “Unlimited plans.” Also they are supposed to flip the switch 4th quarter this year or 1st next year. Phones starting 1st – 2nd quarter depending on flip.

For some people, and Verizon as business philosophy, all that matters is network quality.
Verizon Wireless may suck on many, many things but they have the best coverage and overall throughput for end users; some would like to be ABLE to go over their data limit on their slow network phones.

2) More 4G coverage since they don’t want to lose their reputation for call quaity
3) Better call quality (VOIP, aka VoLTE)
4) Better choice of phones since I believe Verizon are REQUIRED to accept LTE phones onto their network by the FCC (they are not currently required to accept outside phones because CDMA is proprietary) So, I BELIEVE that means that we could see LTE phones on Google Play that we can activate on Verizon LTE. Crossing my fingers, this would mean unlimited DATA for me for the forseeable future, and much better phones— can anyone say New Nexus 4?

At the rate verizon expands their LTE network, we should be good for LTE-only by the end of next year.

But try going out to Surprise around Luke or Carefree/Cave Creek and just plain good luck. Not to mention the horrible thought of breaking down somewhere between Phoenix and Flagstaff or Prescott with nothing but 1x service around.
