Verizon 4G LTE network down again?

Verizon 4G LTE network down again?
For all the talk, Verizon Wireless has taken pride in letting people across the US know that they have the absolute best network, thanks primarily to its strong reliability – as compared to the competition. Of course, we know all too well how great the coverage is with Verizon, but we’re constantly hearing about problems regarding their snazzy 4G LTE network.

Most recently, the network was affected a few days before Christmas, and now it seems as though some of our readers are telling us that they’ve been encountering issues with it again. Taking a quick look at some of our own Verizon 4G LTE devices, we’ve confirmed that none of them are connecting via Verizon’s 4G LTE network – albeit, it seems 3G is holding steadily. From the sound of it all, it seems as though the outage isn’t confined to specific areas. So far, we’ve heard that the connection is down right now in the greater Philadelphia and New York regions.

However, we’re curious to know if anyone else is having issues in other parts of the country. We’ve reached out to Verizon regarding the matter, and as usual, we’ll keep everyone updated with any news surrounding it. So are you having problems today with it?

Thanks to all of our tipsters!

In Phoenix there is no 4G/3G/1X for LTE phones and there are problems with the voice and texting as well.

Until the RAZR / Rez / Nexus was released it was perfectly fine. Once all of this Christmas congestion eases up then it will be back to normal.

Yeah like 2 in 9 months. My Droid Charge lost 4G LTE like one or two times MAYBE in 7 months.

Wow, so far no reported issues for AT&T and 4G LTE. I have the DROID RAZR, but have only experienced 3G - been very reliable, but I prefer WiFi, as it is faster. Still looking forward to 4G LTE, and may have to upgrade to 50.0/10GB when that happens.

In terms of coverage, with any carrier, it depends on where you live, and if you have a phone that is not defective.

Down in Dover DE. 3G went down for a while even on my Bionic, but it's back up now...sort of. It's hard to tell with the building I work in. I did a battery pull and walked outside and 3g came back up. I am getting tired of VZW "most reliable network" tagline. It's been horrible since I've gotten this phone...
