Are you getting Verizon 4G LTE service now? Woo-hoo or boo-hoo?
Three weeks ago, Verizon Wireless announced it was rolling out 4G LTE service in the Fredericksburg area. That’s pretty vague, and Verizon declined to be more specific. It simply promised to make an announcement about what parts of which counties are seeing 4G deployment.
We’re still waiting for the announcement.
But some area residents are reporting that it’s been deployed in their parts of the area and that their mobile download and upload speeds have been bumped up significantly.
This week, Verizon Wireless spokeswoman Melanie Ortel said the company is conducting tests so it can provide an accurate coverage map.
However, Chuck Tolson has good news for Verizon Wireless customers in Stafford:
“I just tested my new iPad and have a three bar LTE signal! Did a speedtest.net and got Ping: 51 ms, Download: 20.02 Mbps, and Upload: 12.46 Mbps !!
“I live on Truslow Road in Stafford about a mile south of its intersection with Popular Road so the LTE signal is reaching this far west off US 17.”
Eric Watkins, GM of Infinity Technologies Inc., says Verizon 4G LTE is going strong in the Southpoint area of Spotsylvania County.
And Melisa Casacuberta of Fredericksburg posted on Facebook:
“What … ALREADY?! Sheeesh! Have had this 4G Droid & a 4G mifi hotspot for SIX months & only in the last 20ish minutes or so, when I happened to glance up at the top of my screen to check the time, did I notice a 4G LTE icon. FINALLY. Now to see if it lives up to the hype … ’cause I am SICK of SLOW!!”
How about you?
Holding out hope in King George?
