Verizon Reveals More Upcoming 4G LTE Markets

Yesterday, Verizon announced a flurry of new markets set to be given 4G LTE coverage on May 17th. And sure enough, the carrier is at it again, announcing even more markets that will be graced with the high-speed network later on this month.

Verizon has revealed five more U.S. cities that are set to be covered in its next-generation network starting on May 17th.

These five new markets will join the eleven other markets that were already slated to get 4G LTE service from Verizon switched on that day.

Verizon Reveals More Upcoming 4G LTE Markets

The new markets added to the list include:

  • Fredericksburg, Virginia
  • Martinsville, Virginia
  • Shenandoah Valley, Virginia
  • Dickinson, North Dakota
  • Williston, North Dakota

So, those of you living in those areas will see 4G LTE service become available on May 17th which means that devices like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX will now be able to connect to the network. Users will also be able to pull down data speeds that can reach up to 10 times faster than 3G. Proof of that can be seen in the video below.

In addition, eleven other cities in the U.S. will see 4G LTE service that day and those include:

  • Benton Harbor, Michigan
  • St. Joseph’s, Michigan
  • Ashtabula, Ohio
  • Bucyrus, Ohio
  • Defiance, Ohio
  • Franklin, Pennsylvaia
  • Oil City, Pennsylvania
  • Somerset, Pennsylvania
  • Northern Cambria County, Pennsylvania
  • New Castle, Pennsylvania
  • Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Verizon has maintained a fairly steady roll out for its 4G LTE network as it attempts to maintain a hold on the 4G LTE marketshare here in the U.S. So far, its network is miles ahead of its closest competitor, AT&T, which boasts just over 30 markets here in the U.S.

Verizon’s 4G LTE network is available in well over 200 markets and come May 17th, it only stands to get bigger.

The carrier has quite the collection of 4G LTE devices including the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, Motorola Droid 4, Motorola Droid RAZR and the LG Lucid. It also has the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE on the way and quite possibly the Samsung Galaxy S III as well.

Verizon has announced plans to only release 4G LTE smartphones during the course of 2012 which had led many to believe that it will carry a 4G LTE iPhone 5 later on this year as well.

    Verizon sucks .. I’ve had 2 4G devices (Samsung Galaxy Nexus & Samsung Tab 10.1 4G LTE) for months with a lot of promises that Ventura County (just a stones throw outside of Los Angeles where 4G is alive and well) will get it SOON!!!!!! Verizon can’t even release the updated version of ICE CREAM SANDWICH like they promised to release in the first quarter of 2012. The upgrade to 4.0.5 is suppose to take care of a lot of problems on what they claimed in December to be thier “flagship” smartphone. It just makes us dumb for believing them. Come on Verizon .. get busy and get this stuff done.

    Was just in a local Verizon Wireless store to get a new screen protector for my Thunderbolt. I asked the salesman about 4G in Ventura county – he had been talking to his Verizon rep earlier that day and seemed pretty certain it would happen sometime in June…

    I’d like to believe him – we’re surrounded by 4G in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Then again, it could be June allright – June 2013 :|

    Verizon has lied and lied to me on countless of times. Finally i had enough of thier lies and deceptions and i left them for a less superior company. However, this less superior company has made no promises to me except for the fact that my phone would in deed be recieving ice cream sandwich. They gave me no time frame for when this was supposed to be happening, and less than 2 months than i have been with them, my phone got ice cream sandwich. Also when i signed up with my new company i had no 4g. Within 1 month, 4g was a available. Looks like verizon isnt as customer friendly as they claim to be.

    Verizon is better than any company ive been with. I have seen 4g speed and i am more than happy to wait for it. If you guys have seen tmobile you will understand how stupid it is to ask verizon to start covering areas before they have the towers to support the network. I live in moscow texas, an hour from houston. Im not freaking out. They’ll give us 4g when they can and not second sooner, no matter how many whiny ass complaints you make.
