Poor signal in areas that should be full coverage

I have had Verizon for about a year or so now. For the most part the service has been solid, and recently there have been some improvements in coverage on less traveled roads.

However, I am running into a problem with getting a consistent 3G signal on my iPhone 4S. One trouble spot is in Aurora, IN. The coverage should be excellent. Once I set foot in a building, my phone almost immediately goes to 1x coverage. I had this occur in Loogootee yesterday as well. I have not had a problem that I can recall, but yesterday getting a usable signal was problematic.

I am also finding while driving, that areas that are normally covered by 3G are coming up 1x.

Is there a system upgrade or something in progress in southern Indiana? I rely on my phone for voice and tethering, so having high speed is very important. I am not eligible for the new trade in plan, so I can't test out the 4G signal to compare.

Any help would be appreciated.
