Verizon Wireless announced a large number of smaller markets where it will soon launch LTE 4G for the first time. The markets include Jefferson City and the Lake of the Ozarks region in Missouri. In addition to the Missouri markets, Verizon is also soon launching LTE in Bedford, Pa.; Jacksonville, New Barn, and Burlington, N.C.; Seymour and Columbus, Ind.; and Gainesville and Panama City, Fla. Most of the new markets will see LTE service go live on or around June 21. Verizon Wireless is also expanding LTE coverage in a number of existing markets, including parts of Idaho and eastern Oregon; The Triangle in North Carolina; Palm Beach, Volusia and Flagler counties in Florida; and southeastern Massachusetts.

Already live in Gainesville

I was in Gainesville at a hotel 5/31-6/1. I got LTE on my iPad; speeds were comparable to anywhere else I've used LTE. Now it could be that Verizon doesn't have the entire city lit yet, but my bet is that the market is very close to complete already.

In any case, I like it when, over a 1250-mile trip between Fredericksburg, TX and Fort Pierce, FL, I spent a ridiculously high percentage of the car ride on LTE. Not bad for it only being eighteen months after Verizon first launched their 4G network.
That last paragraph in your post is exactly why I
left ATT in 2010. ATT is lazzzy!!! Similar customer
base, similar revenue, but that's where the similarities
Of course! Under promise.. Over deliver.
