Looks like there are a few weird things going on over at LTE world. Verizon Wireless and their exciting new LTE network seems to be having some issues, or is it only a firmware issue? That is what Verizon is claiming. Reading over the Verizon Wireless Community forum there is quite a large number of customers reporting 4G drops, like every few minutes or more.
According to the complaints of some it is even worse than we just mentioned. Many users are reporting that even in solid coverage area’s with a full signal they are having 4G dropouts every 5-10 seconds, and it comes and goes. This sure makes things difficult and you can forget about tethering or hotspot functions. Read more about the complaints here.
Verizon has acknowledged the problem and has said that a firmware update is coming soon. They did not mention any sort of time or a date for the OTA, and that is usually the case. It will come when they are ready. You can Google around for certain suggestions people mention are “fixes” but if this is a firmware problem those fixes will only be a band-aid until Verizon fixes the issue themselves.[via Verizon Wireless Community]
