No 4G LTE signal near my building

I signed up Verizon service today. Before signing up, I did check their wireless coverage map near my place to make sure they have 4G LTE coverage near where I live. However, it turns out..... I only get 3G date speed near my building (outside), and I have 2 or 3 bars most of the time.

Location: Zipcode = 27705, near Erwin Rd. and S LaSalle St. Just outside Duke University.

I did have 4G LTE elsewhere, for example, on my way back home from the Verizon Store (27701) where I signed up my service.

I tested my speed at home (, and the result is so bad, much worse than my original T-Mobile service (2~5Mbps) or my husband's AT&T service (~20 Mbps). Verizon has only <1 Mbps on its 3G network.

I am very disappointed, as I am switching to a much more expensive service while getting much slower internet....

Can Anyone help me?? Please!!

Thank you so much!!!
