Where is Verizon 4G – Almost to Nevada County?(Updated)
03/28/2012 5 Comments
I have been thinking buying an iPad with Verizon 4G connectivity, but it has not arrive in Nevada County yet. However roll out in the County may not be too far away. A regular reader of this blog reports a 4G connection at the Nevada County Airport. The Reader reports doing a speed test using an Android 4G phone.
Did a speed test and got a blistering download speed, as much as 15000kbps (yes, 15Mbps) though 10Mbps was more common. Might have been because I was the only one besides Verizon who was using it 😉
Here is the current Verizon coverage map, note 4G is dark the dark red, the pin is Grass Valley.
The most likely expansion path is up I-80 and then some spill over coverage in Nevada County.
Update (03-28-12, 12:20) From the comment it looks like I was wrong, with Western Nevada County joining the 4G/LTE coverage area. Stay Tuned for more reports.
