Hello, my name is Matt,
As a proud customer, it's quite upsetting when I can enjoy LTE everywhere but my own city, even though LTE is 'here'. Here being a relative term because, even on a perfect day, the most any of my friends or me sees in speeds are maybe 6Mbps down. Every other town in FL we blow by with around 25Mbps down.
I constantly watch the news releases from the Verizon site, Fort Myers was set to receive their second round of LTE by the end of September along with Tallahassee and Tampa. I was so excited, now its the end of October and I've seen Tallahassee and Tampa get theirs, but Fort Myers was forgotten, I'm so upset now and looking for any answer as to why we've been neglected.
I just moved to Fort myers. I live off College Pkwy and Winkler area and the 4G here is really low two bars at most. It was 5 bars at the Apple Store at Coconut Point where I bought my iphone 5. Is Verizon supposed to enhance their LTE here in the area? Did they say as much because South Ft.Myers could use it.
I'm by that area all the time, Unless you live by the Twins stadium on
Daniels or Sweetbay on Gladiolous. You'll be lucky to get over a steady
5-6Mbps down. FULL bars at 41 and Page Field give me a whopping 2.5Mbps
down. What gives. Everywhere else in Florida except Fort Myers I get
constant 15+ down. 70% of the time its 25 down. AT&T LTE launched Fort
Myers in their first phase of roll out for this area putting out 35 down
pratically everywhere. Verizon is getting demolished.
Exactly. So is the supposed to be an expansion or upgrade to what is currently here? What sources do you use? Thanks

Well if you search Fort Myers in the Verizon LTE news releases, you'll find
nothing further on what happened to our expansion that was set to accompany
Tampa and Tallahassee. They both got their expansion announced with a turn
on date, we never did which was originally set to be finished by end of
September. Being the coverage is as spotty as when first launched in 2011,
and I constantly test the network wherever I am, I've concluded that either
it never happened or was scarcely and pathetically done when compared to
other areas (and carriers).
Just chill. Verizon will have 100% of it's 3G network done by mid 2013. So whatever weak 4G areas are in your neck of the woods will have better coverage very soon.
That would be great. I get 4-5 full bars inside and out of my house. LTE I get one to two at best! It would be awesome if I got 4-5 LTE bars. I hope that is what he meant.
Brian68, what would explain in a few areas of Fort Myers, when I have full
bars -86dbm and still barely get 2Mb down? Consistently.
