    We are getting the 4 G network this coming month. Where I work I only get 1 bar signal. Will I get better service with the 4 G network. I WAS THINKING OF switching to To sprint which is got really good service here. But I have Verizon now but up for a upgrade in March .

    how far is the tower location if you're able to find that out. Usually Verizon signals are strong where I go, never go below 2 bars unless I'm up at a friend's house on the mountain.

    Anyone else with verizon at your work that you can compare to?

    I am not exactly sure how to say this in the technical way but ill give it my best shot. 4g runs on a different kind of wavelength then 3g. this wavelength is of course, much faster but also penetrates the area much farther resulting in a single tower having a larger radius of signal. so once 4g is in the area and verizon works all the kinks out, 4g phones will supposedly have much better service in places 3g doesnt reach.
