    Thanks.That explains why Birmingham was not on 145 city list but on the coming soon list.Still don't know if B'ham gets it this year or 2012.

    I just hope when B'ham gets turned on the coverage reaches down to cover Chilton county.

    A rep from Verizon told me the same thing.

    Are they keeping this map fairly up to date?

    Seems so. The map shows that we/they have 3G, but when you tick the 4G button, Syracuse lights up, but not so much Oswego.

    It's not listed on Verizon's site as cities with 4G, but their coverage map shows New Hampshire has 4G a few miles on either side of I-93 from the MA/NH border to just south of Manchester. I drove through it today and it's up!

    Actually, that isn't too far fetched. Bear in mind that NYC is the most populous city in the US and it has over 8 million residents. In fact, if you just count the 10 most populous cities in the US, that accounts for over 23 million residents. And these population counts are just the people who actually live within these cities, and doesn't count the people who live outside these cities but are still within the LTE coverage area. For example, the NYC LTE coverage area stretches out into Long Island, part of upstate NY, and NJ.

    Besides, AT&T claims that by the end of 2011, they will have LTE available to 80 million Americans, and yet they only expect to have LTE rolled out to 15 cities (the first phase of 5 cities will go live next week).

    Last weekend, I was in Geneva and I got 4g. I couldn't believe it why such a small town had 4g and I wasn't getting it an hour away in Syracuse. Then, lo and behold, wah la, 4g finally hit Syracuse a couple days ago. I would imagine Oswego should be lighting up soon!

    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.
