    [Updated FollowUp] Verizon Will be Rolling Out & Expanding LTE in New Markets May 17

    The map above is for March, but is the closest time-frame we could find to this rollout.

    Last week we shared several of Verizon's new LTE rollout areas that are scheduled for May 17th, but today we have an updated version of that info. They are rolling out LTE in 28 new markets, but they are also expanding coverage to include 11 new markets as well. Here's the full press release with details below:


    BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Verizon Wireless, owner of the nation’s largest 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, today announced that it will bring the speed and capabilities of its 4G LTE network to 28 new markets and will expand the network in 11 additional markets on May 17. With the new and expanded markets, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be available in 258 markets across the United States, covering more than two-thirds of the U.S. population.

    In the next seven months, Verizon Wireless will bring its 4G LTE network to more than 140 new markets across the United States. By the end of 2012, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be available to customers in more than 400 markets, spanning 49 states.

    “We continue to move forward with strengthening and expanding our 4G LTE network to offer customers the highest quality of wireless experience in the United States,” said David Small, chief technical officer of Verizon Wireless. “Through steady investment in our network and continued collaboration with our partners, we are furthering the creation of innovative new products and solutions that are propelling our customers and our company into the future of mobile broadband communications.”

    On Thursday, May 17, Verizon Wireless will introduce its 4G LTE network in Houma/Thibodaux and Lake Charles, La.; Hyannis/Mid-Cape, Mass.; Benton Harbor/St. Joseph, Mich.; Biloxi/Gulfport/Pascagoula and Oxford, Miss.; Atlantic City/Toms River, N.J.; Dickinson and Williston, N.D.; Ashtabula, Bucyrus and Defiance, Ohio; Eugene/Springfield, Ore.; Lancaster, New Castle, Northern Cambria County, Oil City/Franklin, Somerset and York, Pa.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Mitchell, S.D.; Paris, Texas; Burlington/Northern, Vt.; Fredericksburg, Harrisonburg, Martinsville and Staunton/Waynesboro, Va.; and Sheridan, Wyo.

    The company will also expand its 4G LTE network in Denver, Colo.; Dover, Del.; Fort Myers and Lakeland, Fla.; Hagerstown, Md.; Canton, Lima, Mansfield, Toledo and Youngstown/Warren, Ohio; and Erie, Pa.

    4G LTE Devices, Solutions and Plans

    Verizon Wireless offers the largest selection of 4G LTE devices, ranging from tablets, mobile hotspots, smartphones and more. The recently announced DROID INCREDIBLE 4G LTE by HTC, available in the coming weeks, enhances the customer experience through high-quality photo and audio capabilities. The blue DROID RAZR™ by Motorola will also be available in stores and online beginning May 17. With the expansion of the company’s network, more people across the United States will be able to take advantage of the LTE speeds offered by the nation’s fastest 4G network, enabling them to communicate faster and easier with family, friends and colleagues.

    Verizon Wireless also recently introduced HomeFusion℠ Broadband, a solution that leverages the power and speed of the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network to deliver high-speed, in-home Internet access for residential broadband, particularly in areas where Internet options are limited or are not currently available.

    Details on available devices can be found at www.verizonwireless.com/4GLTE and information on plans and pricing is available at www.verizonwireless.com/plans.

    4G LTE Speed

    In real-world, fully loaded network environments, 4G LTE users should experience average data rates of 5 to 12 megabits per second (Mbps) on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink. When customers travel outside of 4G LTE coverage areas, devices automatically connect to Verizon Wireless’ 3G network, where available, enabling customers to stay connected from coast to coast. Verizon Wireless’ 3G network is the most reliable high-speed data network in the country and allows customers in 3G coverage areas who purchase 4G LTE devices today to take advantage of 4G LTE speeds when the faster network becomes available in their area or when they travel to areas already covered by Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network.

    4G LTE Markets

    On May 17, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be available in 258 markets across the United States. Visit www.verizonwireless.com/lte for a full list of 4G LTE markets and additional information on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

    It would be nice if they fixed broken LTE implementations in the Detroit area. There are more than a few places I get a strong signal, yet LTE either won't connect, or works as slow as 3G. Yet in other spots, I get a rock solid LTE signal and more than acceptable speeds.

    In Indianapolis, I was getting 15Mbps download speed via LTE.

    I'm still not going to hold my breath. When it gets here it gets here, if it even gets here at all. For now I'll continue to live off wifi. Besides my wifi speeds are blowing their listed 4g speeds away.
