Did you read the article? It mentions Alaska specifically. That it will be the only state that doesn't have 4G by 2013.
You're also quite ignorant about the 49th state. Alaska has a population of close to 750k people. Maybe the next time you're at the pump getting gas you'll think about Alaska. As a lot of our oil comes from the state. And several thousand people work in Alaska to get you that oil. That oil also generates billions of dollars of tax revenue for the country. Next time you're eating salmon or crab (or any of the many other sea food products from Alaska) you can also thank the thousands of fishermen who brave the environment so you can have your meal. Also, every day you can thank the many service men and women who brave the elements to be stationed in remote areas of Alaska to monitor and run systems that keep this country safe. Ever bought anything from Asia that came here by Air freight? It most likely made a stop in Anchorage at one of the busiest freight airports in the country. Etc....
Did you read anything here? 750 k isn't a lot of people in a state the size of Alaska and nothing compared to New York or California. The article is in fact about 4g. How many markets Verizon is and will offer it in. Who cares if Alaska is specifically talked about not getting it. I don't care about Alaska. Not in this sense. Due to the number of outages and constant issues I've read about in the news and experienced here in Buffalo I'm just saying I'd like to know how many markets are actually getting proper service. I'm not and haven't since the I got my upgrade. 3g seems fine though.
Also crab fisherman don't wake up in the morning and say boy I really need to get Flatline some crab. They are going to make money. Don't make it more than that. Many love to be out there as well. Another reason why they do it.
I'm also really bothered about your comments about our service men and women. They get my thanks regardless. All in all I was poking some fun at Alaska because the poster above complained about lack of 3g coverage which in spite of your efforts to prop Alaska up on a pedestal doesnt seem very advanced.
So.... way to flex your degree in Google search but it was all over your head.
