We have seen the aircards, phones and the tablets that are to run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network but what about the network its self? Well it looks like our buddies over at Droid Life have scored what looks like to be Verizon’s LTE possible roll out plans! Verizon LTE is expected to be in 140 markets by the end of 2011 and will cover 2/3 of the US in 2013 if their plans stay in tact. As of right now 38 cities enjoy the 4G speeds like Los Angeles for one. Also included is the possible roll out list of cities “soon” to have the 4G speeds grace their areas!
Is your city on the list? You currently enjoying 4G speeds on your aircard? Drop us a comment below and let us know.
During all of Verizon’s 4G LTE device madness, they walked through their plans for rolling out their new network to the rest of the country. By the end of 2011, they are expecting to be in at least 140 markets and covering 2/3 of the U.S. once 2013 finishes up. The overall goal is to have 4G LTE access in every single spot that they currently offer 3G service in. Sounds brilliant, right? Well other than the 38 cities that are currently offered, what can we expect in 2011? If they plan to hit 140, they need to get going, right?
Here is the list of cities expected to see an initial push…
Little Rock, Arkansas
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Lakeland-Winter Haven, Florida
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Fayetteville-Lumberton, North Carolina
Greensboro-Winston-Salem-High Point, North Carolina
Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina
Wilmington, North Carolina
State College, Pennsylvania
Charleston, South Carolina
Columbia, South Carolina
Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina
Hilton Head, South Carolina
Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Kingsport, Tennessee; Johnson City, Tennessee; Bristol, Virginia/Tennessee
Beaumont-Port Arthur, Texas
Bryan-College Station, Texas
Salt Lake City-Ogden, Utah
Charleston, West Virginia
That’s an additional 49 cities that will go live in the first part of the year and will be able to take advantage of some of the new devices like the HTC Thunderbolt and DROID BIONIC. No Oregon though, eh? I guess my Thunderbolt will be just as awesome in 3G.
Anyone seeing their city on the list?
