    Verizon just announced that they are upgrading their network infrastructure in several major cities including, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. They are upgrading to a 100G IPv6 network, using Cisco's CRS-3 Carrier Routing System in order to keep up with high data demand.

    Apparently, there are a lot of people out there that chug down a ton of bandwidth with their movies, games and music! :blink: Whodathunkit? :D

    Here's the press release:

    I know it doesn't say anything about my area but I wonder if they are doing some upgrades in the Greenville SC area? I have had a really weak signal for the past few hours with both 3G and 4G dropping out. I usually have a full signal in my area.

    It'd have been nice if they just did this in the first place, rather than trying to screw us with tiered data plans
