Verizon Wireless 4G LTE: lighting fast and all across the state of Michigan #VZWmidwest #MI4GLTE

Verizon celebrates the rollout of 4G LTE all across Michigan with bloggers - including ME!

For those who have been following this blog for any amount of time, you know that I love to review technology.

I am a total tech geek at heart and through my partnership with Verizon Wireless over the past 3 1/2 years, I have had the opportunity to review all the high end, cutting edge technology that I can handle - and I have loved every minute of it.

My son back in 2010 holding the first Verizon phone I reviewed - Verizon HTC Imagio
I remember the very first Verizon smartphone that I reviewed back in 2010.  Smartphones were just taking off with consumers thanks to the iPhone and my then 10 year old son was so happy to be able to take over the Verizon HTC Imagio smartphone that I was reviewing so he could watch Verizon VCast TV while I was driving him home from school. Smartphones back then were on 3G speeds, but even then Verizon VCast TV reception was outstanding.

Then in 2011, Verizon took smartphones, tablets, and MIFI hotspot devices to a whole other level when they introduced 4G LTE service.  I was in the front row back in Janaury of 2011 at the Verizon press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas when Verizon unveiled the 4G LTE service and the first crop of devices built to take advantage of the increased data speeds.

Back in 2011, Verizon 4G LTE service was only in a few counties in Southeastern Michigan. But then the rollout took up steam, and now, Verizon has completed the rollout of 4G LTE service all across the state of Michigan.

To celebrate the completion of the rollout of Verizon 4G LTE Service in Michigan, I and other Michigan bloggers were asked to submit photos and video (taken with our Verizon smartphones) of the places in Michigan where we use the Verizon's 4G LTE network. The blogger submissions were compiled into a video that captures the historic Michigan landmarks that make our state great.

Please take a moment to view the Verizon 4G LTE across Michigan video and see my Metro Detroit  submissions which include photos of our local treasures - the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) in Midtown Detroit and the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak.
