Re: How much of Verizon's current footprint IS NOT 3G?

There's one small stretch of I-20/59 (maybe five miles at the most) between Tuscaloosa and Birmingham where my phone always drops to 1x. I have no idea why that's the case, as the rest of the way is either LTE or 3G. I was hoping they'd fix it when they turned on LTE in Tuscaloosa, but it's still there.

Other than that, I noticed some 1x areas still on U.S. 82 across Mississippi, but that was a year and a half ago, I think, so I'm not sure of the status of those places now. Also, in Tuscaloosa, there are some places down 69S that are still 1x, and weak at that. That one is odd, since that area has exploded in terms of population in the last 10 years or so, making it by far the fastest-growing part of the metro area, yet Verizon's coverage has never quite caught up.
