I'm shocked that AT&T launched their 4G LTE in Charlotte, NC before Verizon did. I always thought Verizon had 4G LTE coverage here already, but I guess I was wrong...

How many "actual" 4G markets does AT&T actually even have? What's Verizon at? The wonderful thing about Verizons 4G is that it's actually 4G.......AWESOME!

while i agree with you that HSPA+ is just a faster version of 3G, AT&T is actively launching LTE now in its markets. Still very limited for now but within a few years hopefully they will have caught up to VZW.

Verizon launched LTE in Charlotte way back in December 2010. This is the second expansion there.

WOW got all excited when i read LTE in Michigan and only 1 freaking city and it's nowhere near me. Got it all around me in Kalamazoo and Lansing, but no just no. Was told we would have it over a year ago.

Verizon LTE is all around all big cities in South-East Michigan, thats what matters most.

That's great and all but I am still waiting for it in my city and the cities around me that I actually visit and since Verizon told me over a year ago we would have it in my area, yea I think I have a good reason to be impatient at this point. I want in on the LTE network that so many people have been spoiled and ungrateful about.

You do realize that Verizon can't just place towers or new equipment as they please right?

And you also realize they shouldnt make claims and give dates too right?
At&t has hspa + here
metropcs has lte here
20 miles from me has Verizon both north and west from me.

Just like when Verizon said to hope to have FiOS in my area until the municipalities said no. In the end it's not always up to Verizon, they have to deal with the townships and cities which may or may not work out as planned.

I live northeast of Pittsburgh, PA, and the map shows there is no 4G LTE here yet, but my RAZR has been showing it for a month now. It's been erratic and sometimes will not show up for a few days. I would say they must be preparing for another expansion in the Pittsburgh area soon.
