    Wish there was a good source to confirm that other than the coming soon list and the star on the coverage map..They seem to be sticking to the 145 city list which B'ham is not on.That's my biggest concern. Keep me posted if you see or hear anything else. Thanks.

    They appear to be adding cities not on that list as well, as I mentioned in my post no where does it say that 4G is or will be offered in NH, however within the past few weeks they have added 4G to cover 4 cities along the I-93 corridor.

    Some of you may be nearby airports that are 4G enabled. Even if it isn't officially in your city yet, the airports may have it and the coverage may extend to nearby your city.

    The map says it will be this year, combined with the july job posting, pretty much guarantees it will be. I don't know what the average time to get a market live from the time they start work, but I guarantee you it's not five or six months. Probably closer to two to three. I would bank on there being some lte here by the end of october. But I'll let you know when we start getting lit up.

    I was told by the President of the VA/MD/DC region that it should be live in October. I was at the race(RIR) yesterday in the verizon suite and they had 4G live for the race. I actually spoke with a network engineer while I was there too. The speeds were good but not as good as I've seen on here. Each test I saw was between 7Mbps and 12Mbps.

    Downtown Lincoln, Nebraska gets it for home Husker football games, then they turn it back off. I haven't seen Lincoln on any list, but hopefully this means we're close. A Verizon store rep told me maybe in October, which probably means we'll get it sometime next spring.

    I was originally told that B'ham was suppose to be 4th quarter of 2011, but the damage cause by the tornadoes have pushed it back to 2012. FWIW.....

    Lies! Lol. I hope not. Birmingham didn't suffer to much damage. A couple small towns just north of here did. Tuscaloosa got hit real hard, but that's 45 minutes away. We'll see.

    Thanks for the info.

    Looks like bham towers are getting their backhaul upgrades in place. This is the highest upload I've ever seen on 3G.

    I've never seen a coming soon list, just their current coverage list.

    My town is supposed to get it by the end of the year, according to the local store & friends I have that work in the field.
