In multiple parts of South East PA, Verizon's 4G has dropped to less than 3G.

Both myself and the wife bought new Galaxy S5's when we came to Verizon from Sprint just over 3 months or so ago, and was initially blown away-25 Mbps and higher in most areas.

However 4G LTE is STILL down in Lansdale, PA area-It's been at least a couple months now. When we bought the Galaxy S5's a little over a couple months ago, we have always gotten anywhere from 25-45 Mbps, and lately, even after resetting phones can barely get 2-3 Mbps-IF THAT!

Other areas-including parts of Pottstown, Douglassville, and Reading are also significantly slower than they were. Zip codes: 19454, 19465, 19518, 19606 for example. Thankfully (dare I say it) my home area hasn't failed-YET and we still get 20+ mbps fine, so i know it's not the phones. But there is apparently some far-reaching outages-I drive 40 miles each way to work, and often pass through or stop at the above areas, and service has nosedived.

Is there a NETWORK STATUS page at Verizon somewhere? Where are outages reported?

Thanks
