Yeah, I have heard some updated rumblings in the past few weeks. The newest word from multiple sources is earliest of end of February, latest of sometime in April.

From what I am hearing, my guess would be March, but closer to April. Those of you with Verizon 4G phones in Lynchburg should be checking daily to see if you can catch them testing it.

Verizon hasn't been very transparent with 2012 LTE launches up to this point, so I am hoping for a big announcement or series of announcements soon. Maybe we will hear more as we get closer to MWC.

The Snowflex has 4g. I haven't checked out Liberty's campus yet. I went to the Snowflex back in Nov and had a 4g connection. Not sure where the tower is located.

After more talk with area reps, I don't think they have any solid info on when 4G is coming to the 'burg. I was evening hearing December for a few weeks, and then most recently I have heard August/September. So I would guess that we will likely see 4G sometime in 2012, but unknown on exactly when.

From some research I have been doing, I think part of the problem may be with backhaul. Some of the sites don't have the necessary infrastructure in place yet. I even saw a crew burying fiber along Rt 29 north of Lynchburg the other day, which I was surprised to see. The other problem is that Verizon is trying to increase the height on some of their towers in the area -- which would be great. So we will just have to wait and hope for sooner rather than later.

tl:dr, 4G probably sometime in 2012, but who knows exactly when.

Just an update for anyone still interested. The side of the road near one of the main towers on Candlers Mountain Road has been marked for digging and burial of Verizon fiber optic cable (this is needed so the 4G LTE equipment can deliver the faster speeds and bandwidth) and leads right up to the tower. This is great news, and seems to be in agreement with the rumors of a summer/early fall deployment of Verizon LTE.

On the US Cellular front, I checked out one of their towers the other day and saw no evidence of significant infrastructure upgrade yet, despite their summer deployment time-frame. It is still possible that they could do this very quickly though.
