    I don't get it; there already is 4G coverage in Dallas\FTW. Suppose they just mean they're filling in more of the small holes. I get crappy coverage in my apartment, and have a slightly uncovered area outside my apartment complex according to Verizon's 4G coverage map, but I just figure it's the poor reception when traveling through the walls. Suppose we'll find out in within the next week or so...

    Well I don't think so? After all they only have 5 percent of their users on 4G and they do not have a plan like att to limit you to 4 gigs.

    It's not listed, but Concord, NH has had 4G for the past several weeks.

    I don't know about others here, but I've noticed my speeds get better over time. Spots where I would get like 10mbps now get 30+.

    It's nice to hear, but two weeks ago my little town in Northeast Ohio started getting 4g, and were not even on the list.... Hope they don't turn it off...

    That pretty much states expanding mainly toward FTW, Crowly, Tarrant County area.... also saw Marshall and Longview listed (east Texas ).

    I get good coverage driving to work in Allen but lose it inside of the building where 3g is great. Can't wait til it spreads North to the border

    I'm in pa and looking at what they just posted as extending I'm in between 2 of the biggest cities in the state. I have yet to see my phone show 4G. Let's hope this will allow me to enjoy some of this speed but I'm not holding my breath.

    Has anyone in those markets seen anything yet? I'm close to where there extended coverage for Baltimore should be but haven't seen anything yet.

    I will be glad when I see expanded coverage for Birmingham and Montgomery Al. since I'm halfway between them.

    i just went out to grab a drink for my lunch and saw a white 4G icon while I was on a call, I got excited that maybe they snuck an expansion in around here (I have 4G at home, but not work) unfortunately I have not seen it since I hung up from the call. The northeast part of Massachusetts is like the only area of the state that I haven't been able to get 4G.
