    I'm wondering what this poll will show..

    I live right on the border of LTE zone so I'm not sure if I'll get it or not.

    Unfortunately not...Salt Lake City is scheduled to get an LTE antenna before the end of the year, but I doubt that would effect me much (I'm a bit south).

    Santa Barbara isnt a huge city and isn't really in a huge metro area....but its a huge tourist destination so all the carriers wanted to make sure everyone could find where the beach is.

    I guess I should have worded the poll a bit differently because my area LA metro has LTE however where I will be mainly will probably not have LTE.

    There's an LTE tower about 8 miles away so i'm in the extended verizon LTE zone. No idea what that means. As long as I have LTE in school I'll be happy :D

    How can I request Verizon to extend 4G to my city? Is that possible?

    As of now - no. But AT&T press release states by end of 2012. Looking forward to it.

    LTE is the reason why I'm upgrading from the 4S. If LTE wasn't in my area (Dallas, TX) I would have stayed with the 4S.

    Unfortunately my town doesn't have LTE, but several surrounding towns have LTE so it shouldn't be too long until mine gets it. Plus Verizon said they will have all cities covered by mid 2013, so I should be getting it sometime within the next 9 months.

    No LTE in SLO? We have LTE over here in Bakersfield, how odd.

    Not yet, but they should be flipping the switch soon. They've promised end of year, but Cincinnati just went live today, so maybe Columbus tomorrow? :D
