Verizon announces new markets getting 4G LTE starting tomorrow, September 15th

Throwing the switch on, the following markets are finally able to experience Verizon’s lightning fast 4G LTE network starting tomorrow – these include Fort Smith and Jonesboro, Ark.; Daytona, Fla.; Shreveport, La.; Kalamazoo and Saginaw, Mich.; Las Cruces, N.M.; Dyersburg, Tenn.; the Tri-Cities, Tenn./Va.; and Austin, Beaumont/Port Arthur, Wichita Falls, and El Paso, Texas. Therefore, if you happen to be located in any of those new locations, don’t hesitate for a moment to buy any of their 4G LTE enabled devices now that their network is in town and ruling the air.
In addition, Verizon customers will also see 4G LTE being expanded in existing markets like the San Francisco Bay Area, Indianapolis, and Cleveland/Akron, Ohio. Essentially, Verizon will now have 143 markets throughout the country blanketed by its 4G LTE network, which basically covers around 160 million Americans.

4G should be here in October. That was stated to me by Verizon. They have a test area in the northern section of Newport News, part of York County and the Williamsburg area. 4G is running on towers in that area of I-64. A few of my friends live around there and are using 4G on a daily basis.

I am glad to learn that VZW is expanding their coverage in the SF bay area. It can be frustrating to go from an area where you have good LTE coverage to an area where there is no LTE coverage and the phone is cycling back-and-forth, trying to find a non-existent LTE signal. I might invest in a VZW MiFi hotspot if the coverage is being expanded sufficiently.
