    Guy at the Verizon store said Buffalo, NY will never get 4G due to Verizons LTE interfering with Canadian TV braodcasts :(

    Thats what I'm hoping for but it seems a little too out there for it not to be somewhat true.

    Two totally different sections of the spectrum. If they were really that close then somebody up there effed up on the FCC bandwidth allotment. and IF they were that close in spectrum range then tv would/should over power LTE signals from handsets.
