No More Extended 4g Coverage Areas?

I live and work in an area that Verizon considers an extended 4g coverage area. When I purchased my tb on launch day, I had consistent 4g in this area. However, since about Wednesday of last week, I can no longer connect to 4g in these areas. I wonder if Verizon has decided to stop supporting these areas due to the drop connection issue? I have solid 4g in a true 4g area. Anybody been experiencing this? I sure miss my 4g.

from my understanding you won't always get 4G in areas like ours.

 

from their coverage map:

 

** Access the 4G LTE network within the Extended Coverage Area; certain conditions may cause your service to connect to 3G in this Area.

 

Too me that meant you won't always have 4G.

Understand. I once had it, but now it's gone completely. Been this way for about a week now. Just wanting to find out what is going on in these extended areas.

I am in an extended 4G area completely surrounded by full 4G (even a few houses down) but I only get a 4G signal maybe 25% of the time. I just switched it over to 3G today so it won't keep looking for 4G signal, in the hopes of increasing battery life. I rarely get more than 2 bars, either 3G or 4G, so I must live in a dead cell area.
