Verizon Silently Flips the Switch to 4G LTE in a Handful of New Markets

Over the last week or so we have seen tweets from people in 3G Verizon markets that have been turned into 4G LTE markets, and today’s post on Droid-Life confirms this. It looks like Verizon flipped the switch on in several small markets including a farming community which has about 1,500 people.

Let’s welcome these new markets to 4G LTE goodness:

  • Hazleton, PA
  • Cookeville, TN
  • Belle Fourche, SD
  • Greenville,  NC

In the coming months, most likely all of 2012 we will see mostly smaller markets get their 4G LTE switch turned on without any mention of it. Now since the majority of major cities already have 4G LTE, we will mostly see small markets and markets being extended to take on the suburbs around the major cities.

If you’re noticing 4G LTE in your community for the first time, let us know in the comments.

    I live in Greenville, NC and still no 4G on my Droid Bionic. I think they’re still just in the test phase.

  • I live in Greenville too, and I haven’t had 4G on my Galaxy Nexus
