4G LTE network is working for me in Eastern Nebraska.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
I've noticed sporadic outage of 3G data service (the only G we have) in Bend, Oregon this afternoon. There would be no data for a few minutes than it would be back. And earlier this afternoon it showed "3G" with 3 bars of strength, but I did a speed test and it was barely 1x-speed.
