    I saw several Verizon towers being worked on in the Modesto, CA area. I am SO hoping they will be expanding the market there so we get better signal in Turlock, CA. Got my S3 and I get 11mb down but the upload is fubar. It freezes and jumps all over but rarely ever goes over 1mb upload. I was hoping it was my wife's Thunderbolt doing it, but nope, its just the signal. Then again, its not much better in Modesto either.

    I've had spotty 4G in Berkshire County (namely Pittsfield and Great Barrington) in Massachusetts. It's on it's way, and I can't wait for it to be good to go!

    Walnut Grove.... well at least we know everyone who was in Little House On The Prarie will soon have 4G....

    What's funny is, there is actually an episode when the phone was first invented it and they had it in Walnut Grove, but ended up tearing down all the poles because it caused to much trouble then it was worth, especially with Mrs and Nellie Oleson eavesdropping on calls..

    Yes, it's sad that I know this...

    Here we go again. I'm not going to get excited. It never makes it to SNJ. I'll believe it when I see it. Until then I'll stick with my wifi besides it uses less battery.

    What does "with expansions" means? Existing 4G areas will be improved upon? For example, my city just got 4G back in April and it's very spotty. I honestly have more time connected to 3G than I do 4G. Does "with expansions" mean they will expand on the radius of the 4G?

    It will eventually I'm sure...heck I get 4g at my parents house now (albeit spotty) but its pretty much in the middle of nowhere
    And as for WiFi, do you get download/ upload speeds like this consistently on your wifi?

    Yes, with expansions means they are expanding the coverage area by upgrading more towers further away from the city center

    Here are the speeds I'm getting with Comcast wifi. I was testing something that morning. That's why I have so may tests so close together. Comcast is saying that they are increasing their speeds on their top two tiers. I think we are on their second one. I can't wait to see what that'll be like.

    those arent too bad at all, the wifi around here sucks (time warner mainly) so 4g is a huge step
    also if you happen to get good signal on 4g speeds tend to be more around 20-30+ mbps download and like 15-20 upload

    at any rate im sure you'll see 4g eventually, verizons overall goal is replacing 3g entirely with 4g and launching voice over lte to slim down all the radios needed in phones

    Yes, wifi at home is excellent but here at work wifi is slow. And 3g is very weak and slow both at work and home. I was using 4g at my sis-in-laws house the other day and that was fast but it sucked down my extended battery pretty quick. I just got a laptop because my desktop is dying. Now I might have a reason to root my Rezound and hold onto my unlimited data...tethering.
