How long until verizon 4g in weirton,wv?

How long will it be until verizon wireless 4g is in weirton,wv? They just added it to Wheeling,wv/Martins Ferry,OH/Bridgeport,OH and St Clairsville,Oh today. Those areas are 30 miles south of here.

Vz doesn't release the order in which areas will be deployed very far in advance, but they have said that the 3G footprint will be covered by 4G by EOY 2013.

They don't even announce some areas. The Southwest City MO tower was upgraded just a couple of weeks ago without any announcement. Not too impressed myself, although the speeds are great at 30 Mb/s down and 7 Mb/s up, you can only get 4G out to about 5 miles from that tower on the three side that the terrain is flat and on the side the creek is on with a large valley where the town actually sets, you only get it if you are within a half mile of the tower which means you are up on the prarie where the tower sets and have easy LOS. Drop off into town and signal is lost, you do good to even get 1x down there.
