Verizon’s 4G LTE Network Down Nationwide

Verizon's 4G LTE Network is down nationwide, forcing those with an HTC Thunderbolt or a 4G hotspot to suffer along with near dial-up speeds. According to Verizon's twitter feed, the Thunderbolt is able to do voice calls, but data is running at 1xRTT data. The outage comes just one day before the DROID Charge, Verizon's second 4G phone, hits the network. Verizon has said they are hard at work to fix the problem. Verizon's 4G network went down late last night, and though it doesn't affect 3G devices, the Thunderbolt has been booted down to extremely slow speeds. There is a fix, however, that will allow the Thunderbolt to get back up to 3G at least.
