4G in the mansfield ohio area

So I read in the paper where the Mansfield, OH area is getting 4G today.   The coverage area is supposed to extend north to Shelby, OH (where I live).  Well I have the samsung droid charge and I don't get any 4G coverage at all.  The map on the website here even shows me to have 4G coverage when I enter in my address.  Is this an area that still hasn't been fully turned on yet?

Nice, leave it to Verizon to exaggerate their 4g coverage. They tell you your covered until you sign the two year agreement then say oh your not in a 4g area, sorry....

So I guess the only way the area I live in will get 4G is when they finally decide to build the new tower.  Just hope that doesn't take another 2 years...

Mkoppler123, thank you for your inquiry. I understand why you would want to get 4G as soon as possible in your area. I checked Shelby and I see some areas of 4G network and spots of 4G extended network. When you look at your address on the map does it say 4G extended? If so, this means you will get mostly 3G on your phone. It is possible to pick up 4G at some locations depending on distance from the towers. On the map, you will notice in the notes for 4G extended it shows " ** Access the 4G LTE network within the Extended Coverage Area; certain conditions may cause your service to connect to 3G in this Area." Try driving around the area to see if you pick up 4G on your phone.

Well where I live is supposed to be in the actual 4G area and not extended.  I did go for a drive and where the 4G stops is about a mile east of my house (I live on main street).  Now if I remember hearing this correctly the closest tower to this area is the one on Bowman road close to state route 96 east.  Well it seems like that tower only has a range of 3-5 miles,  since it's roughly 3.5 miles from where the connection stops to that tower.

So I guess I'm out of luck for getting 4G in the area I live?
