Not sure why this bugs me but it does....

All of the carriers talk about what percentage of the population they cover. I would just once like for one of them to say what percentage of the US is covered, not population.
Would anybody really give a damn if all of Death Valley was covered in 4g? Is it financially sound to cover all of Wyoming instead of covering part of NY (the part containing NYC)?


There is a large part of America that is sparsely populated. Th...

This is precisely why I'm with Verizon

Profits are put into the network, rather than greedy investor dividends!!! Like ATT, who is more concerned about stock holders than they are about HSPA 21/HSPA 42. No regrets with Verizon!
Well Verizon had to upgrade anyway, since EV-DO is a lot slower than HSPA.
You're kidding right...43 cents a share is what att pays..Verizon pays .48 You don't know what you are talking about. Verizon pays it's share holders a lot more..You do realize that the stockholders are retirement funds, your 401k, pension funds... Ho...

Jay, if you owned a publicly owned company, wouldn't YOU be worried about paying the people that owned the company?

Man, you simply have no clue. If AT&T didnt' have investors, AT&T wouldn't be a company.

Austin Texas Still left out.

In the state of Texas Austin is the only Metro area without LTE. We have it at the Airport.
Probably Verizon lacks Infrastructure here. No fiber backhauls.

Hamton Roads Va

We need it here....
I sell Verizon and selling 4G phones with out 4G is not a problem but you would think an area like this would get it. Eh?
There are lots of areas that still don't have it. I believe Richmond still hasnt got LTE yet, so it will still be a while before EVERYONE gets LTE.

Well if you can live with 3G Smartphones unlimited data still available with prepaid....

Just thought I would point this out. After years with T-Mobile & Sprint, I will admit Verizon is a FORTUNE! Thus far though with the excellent quality service, voice and high-speed data coverage I can honestly say that I feel it is worth every penny.

Cap.

2 gb.
You should have gotten a 4G smartphone BEFORE the cap was implemented, like I did. I got the Droid Charge back on May 20th, before tiered data was implemented. So I am all set with unlimited 4G data. So I can actually USE my smartphone.
