Verizon adding 21 new LTE markets on October 21st
posted by Michael H. / Sep 20, 2011, 10:33 PM
it will include expanded coverage in San Diego and LA, and newly covered markets including: We don't have a complete list of the 21 markets that are scheduled to get the LTE loving from Verizon on October 21st, but we do know that
- Sioux City, IA
- South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger, Elkhart, and Goshen, IN
- Bloomington, Bedford, Evansville, and Terre Haute, IN
- Green Bay, WI
- Buffalo/Niagra, NY
- Birmingham, AL
- Albuquerque, NM
- Sante Fe, NM
- Fort Myers, FL
Verizon had announced earlier this year that it planned to have 145 markets covered with LTE signals by the end of 2011, but it looks like it will have 164 ready with 2 months left to go. Not too bad.

VZ is really serious about LTE deployment they're not f.....g around, even though they're expensive they justify it whenever they have a chance kudos VZ this time you deserve the credit to be "the network" even when sometimes you nickel and dime us

"While AT&T is trying to make a big stink over having just launched its first 5 LTE markets covering about 70 million customers" If AT&T had taken the $39 Billion they were ready to pay for T-Mobile and instead put it into LTE, they wouldn't be playing catch-up to VZW.

yes they would.. the 39 billion would barely put them on the same par as Verizon in terms of work force deployment and trouble shooting as well as the tech to throw out there. Theres evidence of verizon prepping for the 4g deployment for the past year and a half at least.. btw does anyone know if you can use voice and data at the same time on verizon while using 4g?

With the Thunderbolt you can even do voice and 3G. I was curious to see that (Verizon doesn't advertise it, because it wasn't up to their "rigirous standards") but it is in the 3G CDMA spec if you route voice over 3G instead of 1X. Tis a shame Verizon took so much flack for so long about that when it is more an implementation thing than anything else.

I also believe there was a report a while back that the ATT CEO is the highest paid wireless CEO. Maybe if he took a little bit of some pay cut he could invest a bit more into the network....or better pay/benefits for some employees....

Verizon all day , 4glte is the fastest, I told u lames, king of cellphones, now everyone trying to get lte, o hspa, wimax, are not 4g, one of the main reasons people get into technology, is to stay up to date, how are u up to date when u on 3g,sprint , t-mobile,at&t, and etc take not, the blind can't lead the light, work on Ur services first then bring out Ur phones last, that's like getting a car with no road to drive on, get Ur money up, suckers,check the stock market, we got this on lock, swallowed the key a long time ago,

Verizon's covering 160 million customers with 164 markets. AT&T is covering 70 million customers having launched a mere 5 markets. Lol, I don't know what all you Verizon people are boasting about. AT&T probably won't gain the same number of markets, but it'll definitely be covering WAY more customers. AT&T has provided me with excellent service just as Verizon did when I had them 2 years ago. I don't understand why people are constantly talking crap about the other carrier. :)

Just as biophone said. Verizon early on covered many millions with a few markets. It isn't about how many people you cover, but how much you cover to me. When I travel for work, I want 4G where I go. AT&T can go cover all of Asia but it does me no good because I am not there. It isn't talking crap, its pointing out AT&T is behind Verizon with LTE. That isn't crap, that is just fact.
