    Seems like Verizon is either testing LTE in a much larger area or they are going live. I would think that its the former.

    I live in a little town called Mechanicsville just NE of Richmond. This is much further out than most have seen it in the past.

    There is a thread on here that said it's going live in October... This just helps reaffirms it!

    Well it was working all night and through the morning. I got to work, which is on the other side of Richmond, around noon and no more LTE...

    I'm in Chester and work near the Chesterfield Courthouse, and no 4G here. But, I did visit a friend in Church Hill and had 4G. Hopefully they will light up the towers near me soon.

    Awesome isn't it RVA deserves some 4G action. Hope VZW lights up the Richmond metro area (I'm in Chester). It's like going from crappy DSL to FiOS

    I have noticed the signal range on 64 has become significantly smaller. I am hoping that it's weather interference and not just a tease.

    The 4G is active because of the NASCAR races this weekend. Once the races are gone the 4G will be gone as well. It's nice to have but for some reason VA is getting snubbed.

    I had a 4g signal in Church Hill 2 weeks ago. I don't think its because of the race. Anyways, its the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, so why would VZW care about turning on 4g in RVA for the race weekend.

    I think its more of a testing phase.

    Looks like the Ville no longer has LTE. Tried all last night to get it back, rebooted and cycled the radio. No luck.

    a recent article on Android central says VZW will flip the 4G switch on 26 more cities on the 15th (tomorrow) and in the post it says tri-cities Tenn/va so thats tri-city areas in tennessee and virginia.

    Here is the article http://m.androidcentral.com/verizon-launch-26-new-lte-markets-sep-15-expand-3-others
