    Despite the fact that Verizon is already far ahead of their competitors in offering 4G LTE across the country, that hasn't diminished their aggressive rollout and improvement strategy. Even as their competition strives to catch them, Verizon continues to upgrade what they already have in place. A new report indicates they just expanded again and tripled their LTE network capacity in several major cities.

    According to Chief Network Officer Nicola Palmer of Verizon Wireless, the company just boosted their network capacity in major cities like New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These upgrades primarily are focused on allowing for more users on the network, but should also offer existing users with a decent speed bump in some areas. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Baltimore must not be a major city, because LTE still blows here

    What I can tell you is that VZW's current LTE coverage is 92%+ percent of their total network coverage.

    Really, really solid coverage east of the Rockies...although it's surprising to seem such large areas of white, particularly in Virginia and TN/KY.

    Interesting, they have included Puerto Rico but not Alaska on the map.

    Not a very dense population on the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    A lot of the map is not updated right cause where I live it shows that I still dont have 4g but I do and south is white but they also have 4g and it's smaller than my town. Here's a pic of them doing the switch as I live close to the tower.

    Years ago, I used to be one of those climbers, but only for my own equipment these days. I do not get paid enough to fall 300 feet!
    Even from 195', the instantaneous stop will ruin your plans!
    Free climbing is dangerous, I hope they tie off and rest, rope the tools after they secure a pulley system and rope or cable, depending on what they are installing, not to mention a tag line to stop twisting if hoisting a dish. I find comfort in the world below, no longer required to place myself in harm's way to keep the communications lines open.
    All I have to worry about, is making sure I have the proper software, adaptors, cabling, and bridging tools to complete my tasks, no more sore knees or legs, or being wore out by the afternoon.
    I arrive, set up my equipment, commission the site, test the configuration, button it up, snap pics, place a few calls, and GONE!

    OSHA requires that they tie off. Whether they actually do it...who knows. I sure as hell would at those heights!
