  • Ugh, I must live in the area of the 25% lol. I'm 20 miles from one spot, and 15 miles from the other. Both places that are significantly smaller than where I live. Yet, they have LTE, and we don't. :(
  • I Live in Stroudsburg, PA and we have LTE for Verizon here, why does't Verizon say there is coverage here?
  • Its probably not deployed 100% and until then Verizon won't make it official. It may be in the testing stages.
  • Finally a little love in Billings. Just in time!!
