There have been several reports and a press release from Verizon stating that 4g would be launched in Hagerstown, MD yesterday, 10/20/11. I have a droid 2 which is not capable of recieving 4g, so I cannot comment on 4g reception, but I am still roaming on US Cellular with 1x data. Is Verizon launching 1x, 3g, 4g, and voice; or just 4g in Hagerstown?
Can anyone else in the area comment?
4G ONLY! They will not be adding 3G...I have had many conversations with VZW about this and it is not in the works. If you only have a 3G device the only way to access VZW in Hagerstown is to drop another couple of hundred dollars and buy a 4G device. Load of Crap!
I too received an email from VZW that 4g would be available in Hagerstown beginning October 2011. I have a 3g device that gets a constant 1x in Hagerstown. My son has a 4g device that gets 1x also. I contacted VZW, whom replied that there is both 3g and 4g coverage in Hagerstown. They told me to update my devices, which I did. This changed nothing. I truly don't believe the tower is up and running as advertised. I have to go to Greencastle PA, (or I could have gone to Frederick MD) to do updates or programming. That seems to be the closest 3g or 4g signal. Perhaps VZW could offer a better explanation?
