Verizon Adds Another 19 LTE Markets
All of Them Arriving December 20
Continuing the company's industry-leading LTE deployment, Verizon Wireless today announced that the carrier has added another nineteen LTE markets to their network footprint. According to Verizon, December 20 will see LTE service light up across nineteen new markets in Washington, Arizona, Indiana, New Hampshire, West Virginia, Utah, Wyoming, Oregon, Colorado, and New Mexico. You can find a bevy of launch announcements
citing specific locations over at the Verizon Wireless website. Verizon recently stated that all current EVDO areas should have LTE by the middle of next year, six months ahead of schedule

Re: Coverage like a Swiss Cheese. Mr Matt you WILL get 4G within 6 months. Verizon has already stated ALL their 3G coverage will be 4G by mid year.
| |said by Mr Matt:Do you have coverage outside? If so, their map is accurate. They have big huge disclaimers on all the maps that say "outdoor coverage", because they have zero control over building materials, foil backed insulation panels, etc, all of which can degrade RF coming into your home.
According to Verizon's map I already have 4G coverage at my home.
In actuality, there are outdoor stumbling blocks that they can't control either, like foliage, new construction that changes their multipath calculations, etc. Research some of the science behind RF, it's pretty damned amazing that this stuff works at all, let alone that it's become cheap enough that we can literally carry T-3s around in our pockets for $30/mo, on a device that costs a few hundred bucks.
No offense... However, Verizon is lying. Look up 07860 to the right on their coverage map. Move around. Even though the coverage map claims that 'LTE extended coverage' exists in those areas, I can assure you, they haven't rolled out LTE anywhere near here.
It's a paper launch and nothing more. Just like AT&T and Sprint. The only reason why DSLReports is rooting for Verizon so hard is that they rolled out fiber when everyone else refused to.
No offense Karl, I have the utmost respect for you, but Verizon isn't doing shit, as always. T-Mobile is (ironically) the only company with multi megabit coverage where I live. AT&T is on edge, sprint is on 1.5g, and Verizon has 1 bar of 3g (I live a bit east of that 07860 pt, near glenn terrace.)
I itch for the day they claim 100% coverage (or even 99%) so i can sue their sorry asses for false advertising.
