West Virginia to get Verizon's 4G LTE treatment
Earlier this month Verizon announced that it is planning to roll-out its 4G LTE high speed data network to 38 metropolitan areas and 60 airports throughout 2011, which is said to cover up to 110 million people. Now a few weeks later, Verizon along with Senator Jay Rockefeller and Governor Joe Manchin are announcing that wireless expansion and 4G LTE will also be coming to Charleston, West Virginia later this year and will roll out to other metropolitan areas throughout WV by 2013. More information is expected at the official Press Event in Charleston on October 27th, so we'll keep you updated with further details. As you may know, Verizon is counting on its upcoming 4G LTE service and devices to be a major player, so the more cities with LTE the better, as speeds are expected to be between 6-12 Mbps on average, with a current max limit of 28 Mbps.

I live in West Virginia and I'm really surprised that we are one of the first ones to get 4G. We're usually the last ones to get noticed because no one knows that it's a state and that it's a small lol.
