Verizon adds more cities to their mid-december LTE rollout

Verizon adds more cities to their mid-december LTE rollout
Verizon was expected to add only a couple cities to their 4G LTE coverage map on December 15, but a new announcement has multiple cities pegged for a launch on the same date extending Verizon’s LTE lead.

Verizon is creeping towards 200 cities covered with this latest LTE rollout announcement. The cities that will have their skies lit up with the 4G LTE service are found in New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Georgia and Delaware.

In New York the cities of Clintondale, Fishkill, Hyde Park, Kingston, New Paltz, Platekill, Poughkeepsie, Red Hook, Rhinebeck, Saugerties and Wappingers Falls will be getting the LTE love. Further north will see the towns of Fitchburg, Leominster, Lunenburg and Townsend, Massachusetts get blanketed with LTE while Greater Manchester and Nashua, New Hampshire will be getting their own serving of 4G.

Residents of Dover, Delaware will also be able to take advantage of Verizon’s blazingly fast network on December 15. Down south, Skidaway, Whitemarsh, Tybee Islands-Wilmington, Garden City, Rincon, Springfield, Guyton, Pembroke, Richmond Hill, Midway, Hinesville and Savannah, Georgia will all be given the 4G LTE treatment.

Verizon most definitely means business with their expansion of their 4G coverage. With several 4G capable devices on their network and AT&T’s recent launch of their own LTE network it is easy to see why. December 15 will most likely be the last day of 4G expansion from Verizon Wireless for the year. Surely they must have big plans for 2012.

I wonder how many 4G LTE lines Verizon adds from that 1c deal on AMAZON.com?

Smh... Verizon isn\'t the one taking the hit on the 1c its amazon.

Was not my point - reading is comprehension... It was a simple statement - Verizon wants those customers and Amazon wants to earn the commission - good deal for new customer/lines.

The only reason I can see you choosing ATT over VZW is for the talk and data capabilities which I envy :(

All of Verizon's 4g phones have talk and data and many of their newer 3g phones do as well. I remember showing a Verizon rep that the HTC Thunderbolt had the capability when only running on 3g and he was amazed. So don't be too envious. http://thedroidguy.com/2011/01/verizon-htc-thunderbolt-hotspot-works-and-so-does-talk-data-on-3g/

Veriizon\'s 3G phones can\'t because it is CDMA. Only their 4G phones can because the data is being transferred via LTE and the voice is over CDMA. Which is why Sprint also can\'t do talk and data and the same time.

@ N reynolds the htc thunderbolt can do voice and data over cdma 3G . Look it up if u don't believe me and numz. I don't know what it has but it can look it up on youtube there's a few videos of people that are not in a verizon LTE area and can make a call and put it on speaker and go on the internet with 3G signal no wifi on there htc thubderbolts. I tried it on my friends thunderbolt cuz I didn't believe it I tought those people on youtube faked it somehow but I was impressed we were on a verizon 3G area and his thunderbolt had 2 bars of 3G and I called my girlfriend put it on speaker and went on the browser and loaded up facebook, yahoo mail and even downloaded an app all while making a call with a 3G evdo rev A signal on the thunderbolt NO WIFI. I was shocked cuz I tought verizon didn't allow this.

I have the Thunderbolt, I've tried it. Works perfect when I have 4G but won't work over 3G. I'm actually posting from it now and just tried again a minute ago.

I have TB and live in 3G area. I can do voice and data simultaneously, no wi-fi.

Yeah, I got curious why mine couldn\'t and others could so I did a factory reset and now it works. I wonder how it works.

as a thunderbolt owner and a verizon sales rep i can absolutely confirm that the htc thunderbolt is capable of doing talk and data at the same time over 3G and 4G. I believe its because of a second cdma chip but dont quote me on that.

Don't be too envious of At&t's 4G rollout in only 5 markets...i'm on PA.com while on a conference call w/my Rezound.

Thats crazy! I had my friend try the other day when I called him. He had the bionic but was on 3g and it didnt work??! How is it that it works for you guys but didnt for him? Maybe its something about the Bionic? You would think VZW would do an add about that capability being available right? I will need to try this again.

i'm not too sure how that guy is doing talk/web over 3G either. mine experience was over LTE coverage but i'm in a LTE saturated area so i don't default to 3G at this point. but i must say...i am a new comer to my 4G device (as of yesterday) and it is awesome! connected my PS3 to my 4G hotspot running MW3 just to see if all the hype was real & i gotta say i am very impressed. runs smoother than my comcast service over wifi which runs at 12mbps

That was a pleasant surprise that I got when I walked into my VZW store today to go look at the razr and resound after buying my bionic. Dover, DE 4g tower is already up and running. One of the first times I was happy upon leaving that store...lol!

I'm really impressed by VZW's LTE roll out.

I am too. they are staying committed. And are rolling it out very quickly. and hopefully the iPhone gets a 4g version soon. that would only help verizon out even more. They will have the biggest lte network with a nice selection of 4g android phones plus, if the iphone 4g comes out they will have that to their advantage as well.

No reason to look down on LTE 4G with AT&T - where it is at - 4G LTE phones are very speedy and you can fall back on HSPA+ which is easily faster than Verizon 3G....as any iphone users...

28. ap1989

No you'll fall back on EDGE because At&t has very little 3g and HSPA+ coverage. And Barely any LTE coverage
