    We all know that VZW does not differentiate between 3G and 4G data plans/pricing now, but nothing prevents them from changing that in the future. I'm willing to bet that VZW will eventually force people into tiered LTE data plans as they upgrade to LTE from their 3G devices, even for those who were grandfathered with unlimited (3G) data.

    Woot! Updated coverage for DC. Maybe this means I'll get a better signal at my house instead of 1 bar or switching to 3G.

    bummer, it looks like ill still be just out of 4g here in central NJ. looking at the maps, it looks like the extended 4g area ends about half a mile from my house. luckily, my office is right in the middle of full 4g so at least when im there and need the 4g ill have it. Cant wait to get a new phone next week and experience the 4g world

    Actually, the "farming town" idea is quite a brilliant business move, financially speaking.
    They can basically corner the internet market in areas that have little to know access. And I believe the area mentioned has several college campuses that normally aren't calculated into population data.
    They'll be the only game in town. I mean, the best competitor in Versions eyes is no competitor. I really can't disagree with the logic.

    Exactly, those of you living on cities have multiple options for internet. Living in rural Georgia my ONLY options are VZW or satellite. No DSL even.
    I pay the same price for my data plan as the rest of you.
    Unless they accelerate the move to rural areas projections are 2013 for my area.
    Oh and by the way, you folks in the big cities like to eat? Try it without farm towns.
    Just saying !

    I am in Michigan, born and raised. There ain't too many farm towns left, like there used to be. It's all big Agro for the most part. And sadly, they don't roll like the family farm. Some of the facilities I have seen are disgusting and possibly criminal.
    But I am down with everything else you said. And yes, I love to eat. In fact I dabble in my two favorite sins of Gluttony and Sloth, as oft as possible. It's especially easy as I don't think they're sins, just constructs Man has tried to impose on mankind. Judging others and calling them sinners sounds a lot more like a sin to me, if I use logic and reason.
