Verizon announces formal rollout of 4G this Thursday in Spokane

IF 4G is a big deal to you, here's some positive news.

On Thursday this week, Verizon Wireless customers in Spokane can start getting downloads and streaming data at up 10 times faster than the previous speed as the carrier turns on its Eastern Washington 4G network.

Some folks here have noted that they were catching whiffs of 4G being beta-tested.

The tests have ended, according to a release, and 4G goes live this week.

The communities enabled for 4G include Airway Heights, Dishman Hills, Greenacres, Liberty Lake, Mead,  Greenacres, Millwood, Opportunity, Otis Orchards, Seven Mile, downtown, South Hill, Spokane Valley, Trentwood.

North Idaho is not yet part of the rollout.
