I'm surprised no one has posted this here... but I thought it was interesting!!

http://www.verizonwireless.com/news/...less-xlte.html

Our Lg G2's are compatible per this website as well...

I haven't seen any increase in my area yet (greenville, sc) even though it's listed on verizon's site as one of the initial cities. Anyone else noticed a difference in their dl speed?

I just got off the phone w/ a verizon rep who said that there is nothing we have to do... a software update will be pushed to the phone. I am assuming this won't be the case for those of us who have a custom rooted device so it will be up to our devs!

And please correct me if I'm wrong, but if we have a custom recovery on stock then I'd have to either revert to full stock or wait for a dev?

More than likely just an updated modem...shouldn't take devs very long to make a rec flash version

Odd. The article was written well over a month ago and I'm just seeing/hearing about it now. So it's as if we're already benefiting from it, yet I haven't heard any dev mention anything about it or about including it in their rom. Maybe there is nothing for them to update, no?

Pretty much this. As long as you have at least the 12b modem that is all you need. Its been active in the NYC area for months now.

I believe it was the 24b modem that enabled AWS, but either way it was since this past winter.
