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.
is it really massive or is that PR-speak?
Yeah they have not announced my market Florence, AL as well as Jackson, MS, more TN cities and im sure more cities elsewhere they have not announced yet
Eastern Oregon? Geez.... What's over there? What about Central Oregon?

On a good note, Verizon is expanding LTE from Fort Hall up to Shelley in Southeastern Idaho, no Pocatello yet though. That really makes no sense, Blackfoot will have it, but Pocatello, being MUCH bigger (Pocatello and Idaho Falls are the biggest and 2nd biggest cities in Idaho outside of Boise) will not. Fort Hall is just outside Pocatello too, why they don't just do Pocatello at the same time is beyond me.

Yeah how about their home territory. NJ us the most populous state per square mile from what I hear, so far its been slow. Don't think they even had Basking Ridge where there hq is located at listed as 4g yet.

Wish they would improve it in my area of FL. Outside its fine, but go in any home or building and you end up back on 3G. This is with pretty much all the phones I've tested/reviewed, though some (like Motorola) do hold onto 4G longer when going into a structure, but will eventually drop to 3G. Makes me think the 4G signal just isn't strong enough to penetrate a structure, as service screen shows -96dBm inside and -89dBm outside.
Aside from sheer coverage, lets hope that Verizon can keep up with capacity and speeds as more users get on board. I don't care how many people their LTE network covers if its overloaded and slow.
Traverse City, MI area is also set to go live on the 21st as well
Rejection is not failure.
