    The official word that verizon reps here at the beach are telling people is that we are looking at late october, I was just hoping we might have it turned on earlier

    Late October? Wow Verizon really is working fast and meeting their schedule for getting up 4G everywhere. Now all they need to do is go down on their prices :p.

    4G availability <> accessibility
    4G @ AB airport <> 4G in Austin
    Grossly misleading statements like what that map and statements about 1/2 population having 4G available to them = epic fail

    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!
