Verizon is bringing its 4G LTE network to six new cities starting on July 21
Obviously, there are some Verizon Wireless customers out there who might be hesitant about picking up any one of the carrier’s highly prized 4G LTE enabled smartphones – even more when they’re not located in an area with LTE coverage.

Luckily, Big Red is constantly spreading its network across the country, and with that in mind, 6 new cities will be getting the green light starting on July 21. Specifically, 4G LTE will now blanket Huntsville, Alabama; Augusta, Georgia; Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania; Greater Springfield, Massachusetts; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; and Greensboro-Winston Salem-High Point, North Carolina.

So if you happen to live in any of those mentioned areas, feel free about upgrading to any of Verizon’s 4G LTE smartphones sometime soon – mainly because you’ll be benefiting a lot in the near future. If not, you can always hold out for the very next big thing.

Its network 1st for Verizon. They are 100% focused when it comes to network upgrades. Just waiting for more 4G LTE devices to go with the network.

Ignorance or the lack of correct English will always follow great stores.

I really wish I knew how they are chosing these cities...doesn't seem to make much sense. I do commend them, however, for spreading LTE so quickly.

I think Syracuse, NY will be soon. My Tbolt picked up an LTE signal for about an hour yesterday. Speed test showed 300kbps so they may have just been testing the towers.
