I live in Warrenton MO, about 40 miles west of St Louis (Cardinals!!) right off the interstate. I am told, at least by employees at the VZW store here (FWIW) that 4g will be extended to our town soon after the first of the year. I hope they are right, but cannot find anywhere that tells VZW's future plans for 4g expansion. At home, I get about 3megs on my wi-fi and less than that on 3g. Today I drove about 12 miles east, toward St Louis and got full 4g reception. I did 3 speed tests and all of them were around 20 megs down and 8-14 up. The best was almost 22 megs down. That is phenomenal speed and it was very noticeable using the phone too. Hurry up VZW, I LOVE my GNex, but it would be even better when the speed is bumped 10x!
