    Those busy bees at Big Red are humming right along with their 4G LTE rollout. Verizon just officially announced 21 new markets coming online October 18th, and 30 more coming throughout November and December. Here's the full press release, (The above map is an older coverage map, but there's enough red that you get the gist of it.)

    And I'm still waiting. I just looked at their latest map and if they took the signal another two towers I'd have 4g. This is frustrating because 3g is so pathetically weak where I live. I guess I'll keep using wifi for now.

    This is a really, really old map.

    Anyways, I'm excited for more of NH to get 4G!

    Holy cow, I had just ordered a zboost to boost cellphone signal in my new apartment in a suburb north of Baltimore. It's still being shipped. I had absolutely no signal. Like not even zero bars. A no signal icon! But Today I woke up to a solid 3 bars 4g. What the? Is this a fluke? I hope this stays. My cell is my primary phone, lol. Shocked, I didn't see anywhere that this area was getting more coverage. Weird

    Don't question it, just enjoy it. FYI It may go on and off a few times before it's always there if it's a test of an upcoming tower upgrade in your area.

    Lol, 4g is smoking fast on the data transfer, but I still can't hold on to a call to save my life. I guess still no 3g for calls. Looks like I'm gonna need that zboost after all...
