    The day of "substantial" completion has finally arrived for Big Red, at least for the first phase. Verizon has hit their 500th market milestone and finished the initial roll out of their 4G LTE network! A full 99% of Verizon's network customers are now able to access 4G LTE in their area. Here's the full press release from VZW,

    It's surprising how quickly they pulled that off.

    yup, they have 4g lte on the west coast of michigan where other carriers don't even have phone signal. as far as i'm concerned, there is no competition in quality, coverage and reliability.

    Its a shame the company is crap. I don't trust them. Plus, they are raping poeple with their data plan prices. Seriously, 1 gig of data. ALL the cell companies are like drug dealers. Here guys, look at this great new product. Sure, you can have all you want. Oh wait...you guys are hooked, you depend on your mobile devices. Sure is a shame the price just went up. :icon_ devil:

    VZW is like an ex-girlfriend I had years ago. She was BLAZING hot... I mean ridiculously HOT...
    But after a while I was reeeeally tired of her crap and just waiting for the final reason/opportunity to kick her to the curb.

    Which led to her ripping down all of the curtains in the house... t'was epic!

    They've covered 99% of the 3G footprint? Seems very deceiving, I'm thinking the maps I've seen of VZW coverage include a lot of 2G/Edge area that they didn't distinguish. Geographically, I wonder if LTE covers even 2/3 on the 48 states. And the proof is in "95% of people covered". Geographically, that 5% has a huge footprint.
