Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Data Issues Confirmed (Update: Back To Normal)

by: Matthew SabatiniDecember 28, 2011


After spending the whole day running constant LTE speed tests, today is a bit different. In places that normally have 4G coverage by Verizon, we are lucky to be getting any data connection at all on our Galaxy Nexus. 3G is working fine for the most part in Silicon Valley around the Googleplex, but the same cannot be said in other parts of the country.

This is not the first time Verizon admitted to having data troubles. In fact, exactly a week ago today, Verizon’s 4G LTE network was having the same troubles like the ones today. But rest assured, Verizon is working hard to fix the problem, and you should start seeing your fourth “gee” again soon.

Engadget reports that Verizon’s statement on the issue is as follows:

“We are investigating reports of some customers experiencing trouble accessing the 4GLTE network. The network itself continues to operate and all customers continue to be able to make calls, send text messages and utilize data services. 3G devices are operating normally.”

As of about 10PM Pacific Time, my Galaxy Nexus is picking up 4G once again. Therefore, I presume that the Silicon Valley and Bay area are back online with 4G LTE.

Are you having the same data troubles? Or are you back to getting 4G coverage? Let us know in the comments below.
