Population by percentage? Maybe, though i doubt that number. Population by geography? Not even close. My entire county as well as most of the area west of me is without 4G LTE. Don't get me wrong I like Verizon, but articles like that really skew the numbers. I can drive 100 miles in any direction from my house and at least half the time i'll be in 3g. Oh and i live in NJ.
