The map above is for March, but is the closest time-frame we could find to this rollout.

Verizon continues to impress with how fast it is rolling out its LTE network. You can mark May 17th down as a date to remember if you live in one of the below listed cities.

  • Jersey Shore, NJ
  • Lancaster and York, PA
  • Cape Cod, MA
  • Northern VT
  • Delaware Shore, DE
  • Dickinson, ND

Add Panama City, FL to that list baby!

Edit: Being very sporadic, going in and out constantly. Ran a speed test and was getting nearly 3Mbps. Our area hasn't officially been announced for 4G rollout yet, so this came as quite a surprise lol

We've had 4G in York PA turned on now for over 3 weeks. Too bad it goes back to 3G about 300yards before my office.

I am retracting my previous post lol. Haven't had 4G since this morning, leading me to believe they were just testing a new tower and we will be next in line for an official launch.

Yessss, THIS is what I was waiting for...apparently the local Verizon reps were right by saying I'd have 4g by June...all the cities above are the ones that are right around me
Btw the Youngstown/Warren one and the Erie one already have 4g so I'm assuming they are expanding the coverage there...the Youngstown/Warren one was especially annoying being so close but not close enough (that coverage ends just within 15-20 miles of me)
