A survey on the Pharos-Tribune's Facebook page received several responses welcoming the news.
"It definitely will bring Logansport back up to where it needs to be," said Steven Rohde, adding that other providers either already transmit service in Logansport or have stated plans to do so.
"Verizon is the only one lacking," Rohde added. "Too many people move to Logansport only to find out one of the major phone providers doesn't service the area. While having Verizon 4G won't lead to any development or anything, it does make our town seem more like the rest of the world rather than a little burg in the middle of nowhere."
Vicki Gordon, a Verizon customer since leaving Logansport for Florida, wrote she is considering remaining with Verizon now that she's back.
"Been a loyal Verizon user since I lived in Florida," she wrote. "Since I've been back to Logan I have seriously thought about switching.... maybe I will just stay with them now so I can get what I'm paying for."
Morgan said this 20-year relationship with Verizon could possibly bring more opportunities between the service provider and Indiana's rural areas.
"We're offering this and who knows what the future will bring," he said. "From there, the sky's the limit with what the possibilities are with this network. It's a win-win for Verizon and S and R."
