Hi there, on 02/08/16 the service in Fredonia, NY changed dramatically. It went from having strong 4G LTE coverage downtown (let's call it the intersection of Main St & Water St) to having almost no coverage whatsoever. The only data available is now 3G (which is horrendously slow) and 1X for stuff like text and voice. Often, the 3G signal will drop out as well. When I called, I was told that there were no changes and no issues -- this is clearly untrue because service doesn't just change that dramatically. If I don't get a resolution in the next few days, I'm going to start approaching community authorities who have more sway than I do. I doubt they'll appreciate Verizon being deceitful with the local market.
Anyone else in the area have this issue?

Yes, I have had friends and family test it. They have noticed the same issues, and can replicate my experience exactly when testing the affected areas. However, it does appear that service is still available in certain areas -- when one moves north / northwest a few miles, the 4G service appears to return, albeit less reliably than prior to this past Monday. We have not had a chance to do more extensive testing, of the area at large, but the heavily trafficked area of downtown Fredonia is most definitely affected, which is a major issue. If this issue continues, you can bet that there will be a major uproar when the next large event comes to the parks, downtown.

Did you guys do something? The service appears to have returned to its previous state. Could you tell me what was wrong? Just curious, and would like a bit of extra info to tell my friends and family.
