Wow Verizon is serious about their LTE network! AT&T better/needs to get the ball rolling faster.
Re: Wow All evdo markets will have LTE by the end of 2013
What exactly does this mean? Doesn't the entire Verizon footprint have evdo? I've never come across native coverage that was 1x only. Are they committing to have it in their entire footprint by 2013 or only to have it in each market?

RE As I and others have said, Verizon is serious alright, about pushing people that are on the decaying copper onto wireless. That will be their next step, just you watch, to sell off those markets and offer their LTE (with ridiculous caps of course) as an alternative.
Sure you do not think they are rushing through this deployment just to offer their consumers a better product. Come on now. They have a plan.

This a freaking Joke This is a Freaking Joke for real for real they dont care about rural parts of america because its really showing!!!! I dont see Verizon having rural parts of NW Ohio like Mercer/Auglaize and SW Darke County and NE Adams/Wells County Indiana until 2016!!!

Re: This a freaking Joke How's the AT&T service?

...they dont care about rural parts of america...
Re: This a freaking Joke The att coverage in NW Ohio was from the purchase of Centennial that had really good service in you area.
Re: This a freaking Joke A matter of fact I have the rail line runs through Defiance, Hicksville to Garrett. Defiance has LTE service.
Re: This a freaking Joke I work on CSX, the Toledo line runs down through those parts. Its pretty much as rural as SE Ohio where I am. But the bad thing about where I am is it is hill country and if you ever looked at coverage maps of SE Ohio there are a lot of no serivce parts and yes you can go for miles in some places down here with no cell service at all.
| |said by treichhart:Are you seriously bitching about this? Verizon has committed to building LTE out in their entire footprint. Given that, where do you think they should start? In areas with heavy population density where the evdo network is more heavily taxed or in rural areas where the evdo network has less traffic and still delivers decent speeds?

Re: This a freaking Joke
said by MovieLover76:Well, it's not going to work as well in the suburbs with the higher density of people. In rural areas though I think it's still a viable option. I spent a few days at B&Bs in rural New Hampshire and Vermont back in June. I was getting 1.8mbit/s to 2.2mbit/s on my DX. We tethered our laptop and streamed Netflix without any issues, even during supposed peak hours.
Evdo was decent, until the network in the suburbs where I live Central NJ
With the widescale deployment of LTE I feel even less incentive to rush out and replace my 3G phone, particularly now that I'll have to eat the full cost of a replacement to keep my unlimited data. The 3G network will only get faster as more and more users migrate to LTE.
Verizon does plan on shutting it down eventually and I'll be getting an LTE phone long before that happens but in the interim why should I spend the money on a new phone? Around NEPA during peak hours I see speeds of 600kbit/s to 1,200kbit/s, which is plenty for my needs. The only market where I notice significant slowdowns is Binghamton (where I used to live) but I'm betting that's fixed now that they have LTE there.

AT&T? Hello? Hey AT&T! Verizon deployed LTE in 37 more cities. You have LTE in 47 cities. That's sad.
Wake the hell up and do something other than tell people that they can't use your network for X, Y or Z.
Watch Sprint's LTE deployment pass AT&T's like a shot.
Re: AT&T? Hello? Personally - I don't think they really care - or they're too stingy.
They'll milk out HPSA+ and deploy LTE where they don't have enough spectrum for 3G, or a strategic markets.
Verizon / Sprint have more incentive - shed the 1x/EVDO, as its going to be hard(er) to get devices for it. On a global scale, CDMA is 9% and shrinking.
HPSA/LTE is 16% and growing, GSM is at 74%.
AT&T is being themselves... late to the show
New Lte Market Lafayette La came up today. First speed test 15.3 down 13.6 up (Mbps).
What's the point? I just got my first LTE phone. But in doing so I lost my unlimited data. So now sure I can download at 20/5... But now I have to watch how much I use it. Dang Verizion having to nickle and dime everyone to death.
The joke is on. Cecilton Maryland 21913 LTE has been live for a month,that's what Verizon site say's butt there is not even a hint of LTE there,heck there is not even any Lte equipment on the only tower there.

New Tower Just Got Finished Have no clue what Verizon doing... not to complain... but they just put two new lte towers up in my area this past week. The whole county probably doesn't consist of 15000 ppl but the tower are finished and ready to be turned on. I also know they have alot of areas in Georgia that don't show up on the map having LTE but cities do.
Putnam County NY I noticed LTE/4G in Putnam County tonight on my drive home. Just South of Coldspring. Maybe Philipstown.
But yeah Westchester (North at least) has a lot of room for improvement.
Re: Putnam County NY expand to the rural areas of delaware please im tired of beng stuck with back-end 3G coverage less than 1 mbps bandwidth

Re: Putnam County NY how does Westchester not have LTE yet?
its one of the wealthiest counties in this country...
Re: Putnam County NY They have it in parts of southern Westchester (Yonkers) and in White Plains. But much of the rest of the county no.
I didn't see 4G this morning in the area I did last night. I guess they are doing testing and haven't turned it up yet.
Caps Suck The faster the speed, the faster I can get to my cap!
