coverage issue in downtown washington DC

This is just sort of a shout into the wilderness.

I work at NASA Headquarters at 300 E Street SW in Washington DC.  I am within sight of the US. Capitol and near a massive Verizon infrastructure building on the Southwest Freeway.

Verizon coverage within the building is nearly nil.  With a 4G LTE device, I am lucky to get a couple of bars of 3G.  Today I can get only 1xRTT.  It's like going back in time.  Vendors bring Verizon hotspots into the building to give demonstrations, and are unable to do so.

In the same in-building locations, AT&T service is 4G, 4 bars.  It is now common knowledge that, if you want it to work in the building, you should order AT&T, and not Verizon.  Thought you might like to know that.

I have a phone that I can barely use, and a hotspot that I cannot use at all while at work, so I would appreciate some service.  I take the same phone home to a fringe area (Chesapeake western shore), and there I have 4G!
