"Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif."
If that is through the LA metro area, that's potentially 8 million customers. Not a small roll out hopefully! I go to Long Beach for my grad school, so at least I may be part of it.
Screw Verizon and AT&T, their shared data plans suck. Plus my 3 Verizon coworkers have been constantly complaining about their LTE outages as of late and one them is going to switch to someone else as soon as their contract is over.
I was seriously considering moving to T-Mobile's 4G Monthly unlimited for $30/mon (Unlimited Data/Text + 100 minutes), but if they can get LTE in SoCal quickly, then I'll stay. Contract is ending in November....can upgrade to a LTE device now....
