    You can add Jonesboro, AR to the list. Fort Smith, AR is also supposed to get 4g today. I can verify the 4g in Jonesboro though. Tested it on my Thunderbolt at lunch and got 13.84 mbps down. I live just outside of town though, and the 4g stops about 3-4 miles from my house. Looks like they missed me by one tower on this one.

    What??? It says Fargo ND as in North Dakota, what does that have to do with North Carolina? None of markets activated today were on the east coast.

    Pretty much nothing in the northeast, either :/ Kind of figured we weren't going to be a priority area.

    You're kidding about Texas being on the east coast, right...?

    Va will be dropping very soon, I lived in Va Beach for 6 years, have 2 friends who both run VZW stores and they tested the 4g towers last month for an afternoon. I am hearing October for hampton roads. That is not fact so take it as you will but I do know for certain they tested it out and it should be ready to go when they decide to flip the switch.

    Why isn't all of NJ sweating 4G right now? It is after all the state of it's headquarters and it's such a small one to take care of.

    I don't get this either... most densely populated state and Verizon HQ and we get nothing... They hit NJ and they can boost that coverage per person amount tremendously.

    I'm in Fargo, ND and we are a bigger city than some people think. We have some major businesses here including one of the largest Microsoft campuses in the Country.

    I was happy to wake up to 4G, my very first speed test on my Revolution only gave me 2mb download, but a few hours later and I am hitting and average of 17mb.

    It's a good day.
