    Ahh that sucks. They must have either turned it off or just be testing the area around the historic triangle.

    My guess is that's a testing area. So I at least get it at work.

    Nice, I used to work in Altoona, PA! Can't wait until my town gets it, seeing how it's a decent-sized college town, I figure it's just a matter of time.

    I had a couple friends in Va Beach who had it for a short period of time today as well. So It looks like they will be trying to hit all of Hampton Roads at the same time.

    For my fellow alabamians, I saw a job posting by glotel (verizon) for a lead lte tech to oversee construction in birmingham posted july 31st. Finally, they might be getting underway.

    Hmmmm .... am I the only on that finds it difficult to believe that half the US's population lives in and around only 117 cities within the US. This really is a stretch from big reds marketing department. Given maximum realistic usable range coupled with limiting typographical geographic features, I find this claim to be absurd marketing at it's very best. More accurately, it potentially is available to half the US population on a limited occasional use basis in that they cross through, and into coverage areas on a part time and limited basis during their travels combined with those that actually live within the actual use zones. I find these claims to be absurd marketing at best! Realism, accuracy, honesty, and integrity will get you more for your dollar than the best hype ever will. With claims like these it makes me think that I'm watching a 3 am infomercial. You want the public to be correctly informed, because once consumer becomes a customer, the last thing you want is to have them disappointed if you ever intend to keep them as a long term customer! Stop the hype and double talk and you'll be respected for it Verizon!

    I was in the local (Richmond, VA) Verizon store and was told that 4G will be in the Richmond, VA area in November.

    The way I see it it's either,
    A: Verizon is just saying that to attract more customers into buying their 4glte phones
    B: They spoke to soon before flipping on more 4g switches
    or
    C: They're referring to half of the u.s population that is either already with Verizon or half of the population that uses cellular technology.

    If option C even makes any sense. Either way, that's a bold claim by Verizon. Im in Newark, Ohio and haven't seen 4g here yet.

    But then again, the keyword could be 'available' as in not in your city but a neighboring one that you can easily access?

    Albany, NY is live with 4g. It has been on since 2 days ago. Cant wait to see if they release the Bionic in the next 2 weeks or I might have to settle on the Rev or Charge.

    Syracuse, NY's turned on a couple days ago, ahead of schedule. I spend a lot of time in the city, but now I'm hoping it comes to Oswego soon, as that's where I live.

    Oddly enough while in the shipyard, at our contract hotel, for a night I saw a verizon LTE trailer parked in the hotel parking lot last month. Hopefully they WILL be bringing it to the Hampton Roads area.

    At least my hometown (Bakersfield) just got it.
