Default Verizon Wireless LTE goes live in 22 new cities today, more to come on November 17

In case you've already forgotten Verizon's announcement last month on the next batch of markets to receive LTE, the following areas are official live beginning today:
  • Fort Myers, FL (LTE currently is available in the airport)
  • Buffalo/Niagara, NY
  • Sioux City, IA
  • Terre Haute, IN
  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Birmingham, AL (The footprint will also extend out I-65 North to Cullman, I-59 North to Springville, I-20 East to Moody, Highway 280 East to Harpersville, I-65 South to Calera, I-59 West to Bessemer and Highway 78 West to Jasper.)
  • Santa Fe, NM
  • Evansville, IN
  • Bloomington, Bedford and Mitchcell, IN
  • South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger, Elkhart, and Goshen, IN
  • Green Bay, WI
  • Modesto, CA
  • Stockton, CA
  • Hagerstown and Western Maryland
  • Expansion in Los Angeles and San Diego

Verizon also announced today that they will light up the following markets on Thursday, November 17:
  • Little Rock, AR
  • Savannah, GA
  • Cedar Rapids and Des Moines, IA
  • Lexington, KY
  • Kansas City and Springfield, MO
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Orange County, NY
  • Greater Providence, RI
  • Rapid City, SD
  • Roanoke, VA
  • Appleton, WI
  • Expansions in Louisville, KY, Grand Rapids, MI, Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, Pittsburgh, PA, and Nashville, TN

That LTE-powered Galaxy Nexus just got a heck of a lot more attractive for you guys, didn't it?

Thanks for putting this up. I didn't know about this. My current contract runs out in Dec. and it looks like my area has been added so maybe...

Awesome, I'm glad to see we will be getting LTE so soon. I just wish I wasn't stuck with At7t's horrible network until March.

Aww man, I was really hoping that LTE would come to the town I live in of less that 3,000 people. Maybe some day.

Well my town is around 1,500 or so but we are near enough one of the citys that according to Verizon's site our address is covered. If I do go to get it I will want to test it out somehow beforehand though. I don't want to be having to drop to 3G all the time if I am paying for 4G.
