    [Updated]: You can see several new live posts of cities and towns getting LTE upgrades if you hit the following Verizon Twitter Link: Twitter - Verizon Wireless

    According to a recent Twitter post from Verizon Wireless, they will be adding LTE to "a mess of new cities and towns" on Thursday. More specific information was not given at this time. I wonder if they are adding a full-on "gaggle" or if it's just a "hodgepodge" upgrade?

    We will let you know when they give us something more concrete.

    This is just a giant tease for me cause I know 4g isn't coming to NH anytime soon. My only hope is that because I am so close to Boston they branch out from Boston on.

    Ditto. I live right in the center of the CA Central Valley and doubt I will be seeing LTE anytime soon.

    I live in NH, too man! Yeah, I'm really doubting it, I think I saw a plan for the next cities getting 4G, and NH wasn't on there. I don't understand because Manchester is a pretty big city >_<.

    Ah well, 4G really isn't that fast anyways. I went to Peabody and Boston with it and it wasn't that much faster for me.

    WTF.... Wilmington, NC is included, but not Raleigh?!?!?!

    So let me get this straight. Charlotte and Wilmington will have it, but the state's capital, with all the tech research hubs of not only the state but for a lot of the nation is not.

    Wow

    So you took your D Inc to a 4G area and the 3G speeds weren't any faster? Bizarre.

    I find it more interesting that what appears to be 1/3 of the population of NH has responded to this thread.

    haha maybe he just hasn't updates his phone info yet and he has the TB now.

    Also there are atleast 48 people who live in NH, so we hare far less than a third of the population. :)

    Wow, BIG change in population since the last time I was there. ;) I'm certain the whole 4G thing is just one more reason for Bostonians to thumb their noses at NH.

    I hope Verizon isn't planning on changing the unlimited 4g data with this. It would make sense to do it right before the charge is released.

    They didn't drop it before the Thunderbolt came out, so it may last.

    The NH thing annoys me a little as well. I spend a lot of time in Nashua for work (company headquarters) and while I'll get 4G in my home city (Grand Rapids, MI) and at Logan when I arrive/leave, the whole time I'm there, I'll get crappy speeds.

    A colleague of mine went out and got the Thunderbolt, but had to disable 4G cause it was killing his battery. He still wants and extended battery though, since he's coming from a BB.

    Christ people give them time to get the country blanketed. There are major suburbs here in Chicago which don't even have 4G yet.

    I know it's hard to believe, but they don't just change a setting and poof it's 4G. There is actual INFRASTRUCTURE work to do on each tower.

    4g is a great upgrade but if I am at the house I am on wifi anyways. And when I am out and about I don't really need blazing fast data speed. I would rather have processor speed over data speed, only because a good majority of the time I am on wifi.

    Ditto. I live in Los Angeles, get 23-25mbps down and 10mbps up. But I just prefer to keep it on WiFi cuz I get WiFi at college, work, and home - even church! lol. Nothing like overclocking the Thunderbolt and watching it fly.

    For you NH'ites, I know my area in Central MA (Fitchburg/Leominster) are set to get 4G sometime this year...not expecting it with this round, but soon. And this area is rather close to NH, so after the bulk of MA is on, NH could be next? Who knows.

    You're lucky you even have 3G... When I was there, we were one of the very last to get it.

    I'm just shocked that Raleigh wasn't included and Wilmington was. I guess cause we're going to have the largest segment to turn on, and they want to make sure it goes smoothly, so they're using Charlotte and Wilmington as test runs, first... But man... frustrating

    I had a corporate rep (who is silently part of "our community" as to not get fired) tell me Indy was supposed to be turned on mid-April, so I guess this Thursday is it. :)
