Verizon LTE lighting up 28 new markets on July 21st

The new markets getting the speedy network from Verizon are:
- Decatur and Huntsville, Ala.;
- Colorado Springs, Colo.;
- Lakeland and Sarasota-Bradenton, Fla.;
- Augusta, Ga.;
- Hilo, Honolulu, Kahului-Wailuku and Lahaina, Hawaii;
- Carbondale, Ill.;
- Wichita, Kan.;
- Louisville, Ky.;
- Baton Rouge and Hammond, La.;
- Springfield, Mass.;
- Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point and Raleigh-Durham, N.C.;
- Toledo, Ohio;
- Tulsa, Okla.;
- Portland, Ore.;
- Wilkes Barre/Scranton, Pa.;
- Charleston, S.C.;
- Chattanooga and Knoxville, Tenn.;
- Olympia and Tacoma, Wash;
- Charleston, W.Va.
Verizon will also be expanding coverage in Phoenix, Ariz.; Los Angeles and San Diego, Calif.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Northern New Jersey; Dallas-Ft. Worth and San Antonio, Texas; and Seattle, Wash.
And for an easy check of the 145 markets Verizon has planned to light up with LTE in 2011, with those covered (or to be covered on Thursday):
I'd really like to see VZW's justification for lighting up some of these small towns over cities with 1/4 million+.

To continue to help out the millions of people that don't get great coverage from other providers, and the really large cities will get it soon enough. Come on ithaca!! (at least by the end of 2011 like you promised)

The fact that Ithaca is getting it ahead of Buffalo is ridiculous. I know they are having problems with Canada band or something, but still. Its a slap in the face to the Queen city. Especially when they promise you when they sell you a thunderbolt day one, say that there will be LTE by mid to end of the summer( the rep said it was a matter of "flipping on the switch") and then you find out you wont get it until next year. This sucks

I know, I live in Buffalo...it's ridiculous. No other city should have 4G ahead of Buffalo except for NYC based on population alone. Buffalo is the 2nd largest city in NYS and the ONLY other city, besides NYC of course, that has professional sports teams. Lame.

YES Verizon can now spread the joy of battery draining in 28 new markets starting July 21st. lol Just kidding. I LOVE all 4G. 3G is torture to me now. I would rather carry 2 or 3 extra batteries than deal with 3G. I REALLY MEAN THAT. After 4G, 3G is inacceptable PERIOD! lol
