New to LTE...is the signal only along highways and main roads?

In my area LTE is starting to pop up but is only along our main freeway...is that just due to it being in testing phase? In theory is it supposed to eventually be available "everywhere"?

pdawg171717,

Thank you for your post regarding LTE services. During the initial testing phase and pre launch, the availability will be minimal and coverage will be spotty. Once  a city is "launched", the coverage will increase, but again it will be in minimal areas until the complete buildout/upgrade is finished which is expected end of 2013. What city are you in? I can tell you were the enabled towers are in your area if you like.

Thanks for the reply...I am in San Carlos, CA and currently all of the LTE I can find is right along Highway 101 only...was just curious if eventually it is supposed to cover the entire city? And if so is it totally different coverage because 3G in and around my home is terrible...

My area too, only when I'm on freeway ( I-80 ) and around near freeway , I can use LTE with my iPhone 5 . But when I'm out little bit far from freeway , my 3G go back with 0.02 mbps.

My city is Fairfield - CA ( 94533 ) . Can you check it for me ? Please and thank you very much.

pdawg171717 and fujiki6677,

I did check the areas you provided me as well as the general San Francisco Bay area and I am finding that there are some towers enabled with 4G along the highway 80 Corridor and 680 and the Rancho Solano Pkwy with 3G enhancements currently being seen near Gordon Valley and Suisun Valley roads. Other towers are being tested and updated in this area and no ETR has been listed as of yet.

oddly enough Fairfield and San Carlos are not on ANY of the lists showing NV being deployed.
