The next rounds of buildout for Verizon's LTE network are on their way, and this time 35 new cities are picking up their extra G across two activation dates. Here's the official rundown:

The last round of upgrades already upped Verizon's LTE coverage area to over half the country, and this new wave hits a few cities that had been feeling especially neglected, like Kansas City and Buffalo. And of course, 4 LTE Gees landing on the Birmingham, Alabama doorstep of Giz editor Brian Barrett is a welcome sight, too. FaceTime after lunch, Brian! [Verizon]
