Keeping pace with AT&T's freshly-announced new LTE markets, Verizon has a few new market announcements of their own. According to a Verizon press release, they're expanding LTE network coverage in Little Rock, Arkansas; Rapid City, South Dakota; Clarksville, Tennessee; and San Antonio, Texas. The company is also turning on LTE for the first time in Cookeville, Tennessee. With this latest launch, Verizon says they now offer LTE service in 196 markets, which are broken down with Verizon's latest LTE availability map (pdf).
Crap there isnt even 3g in Celina/Coldwater, Ohio area
Crap there isnt even 3G in Celina/Coldwater, Ohio area for Verizon or ATT its noting but 2G/Edge crap these cell companies needs to stop with these false advertising before they get sued for this kind of crap.
You ever read your subscriber agreement? All of them clearly state that cellular phone service is radio based and that technical issues beyond the carrier's control could render the service useless. No warranty expressed or implied, yadda yadda yadda.
To be blunt. If it don't work, you're SOL..... -- Petty people are disproportionally corrupted by petty power
They installed LTE antennas on the towers near me 10-12 months ago, and even put up a brand new tower last April. None of it is turned on yet. I can only assume they're struggling getting fiber to some of the cell sites.
Where their 4G is now, the speeds aren't even that great. For a while they were maybe 10mbps, maybe 6 or 7mbps. It wasn't anything special. I think Scranton was one of their rushed-to-market attempts at LTE. I suppose it's within their scope of "5-12mbps" but still unimpressive for all the hype.
For some reason I am only getting 0.5 mbps on my Pantech UML 290L USB modem when I do speed tests but I get 4 Mbps upload when I do speed tests with the above mentioned device plugged into my MacBook Pro. -- All of my CPE (including my EMTA) is customer owned. The only Comcast owned equipment in my house is the CableCards in the two TiVO boxes I own.
That Pantech UML290 USB modem was a great modem on LTE but absolutly horrible on 3g and got so frustrated with it I took a hammer to it. Now using a Samsung hotspot and it pretty much does the same thing. Great on LTE horrible on 3g but not as noticable. It might last till I see LTE in my area. But as far as LTE speeds Most of my downloads are well over 15 Mbps down and 6-10 Mbps up.
