Weak / Nonexistant 4G LTE coverage in Boston Metro North


Verizon's 4G LTE coverage map here is pretty laughable, at least for me.  I'm about 1000ft from I-93 and just north of the city, which is completely filled in on the official coverage map.

Result: 0-1 bars, missed calls, can't use phone for internet unless there's an open wifi nearby.  If the phone downloads anything at all rather than just giving a network error it will be around 50k/s, you know, late 1990's internet speeds.  Can't tell you how awesome that is when paying $100/mo for (non-)service.

Anyone else having this issue?  Phone (Samsung Galaxy Nexus) is patched up to Android 4.0.4, if that matters.

Good afternoon Tarou.

Let's see what's going on with the 4G service on your Nexus. I wouldn't be happy to have to only rely on WiFi.  How long have you had your device? Have you ever had a stronger 4G signal in this area? How about in other areas? Please try clearing the device memory, http://bit.ly/SxXaLs , and then remove battery and SIM card for about 30 seconds. Once the phone is restarted, you should have a stronger connection. If not, please respond with the exact location(s) of these service issues. Also, do you know of anyone else on VZW that has similar issues? I look forward to your response.

Thank you,
