Verizon customers with 4G devices were back up to speed by mid-day Thursday after the wireless provider was able to restore service.

Verizon reported the outage Wednesday on Twitter. The company said problems at a Dalton, Ga., site were due to “inclement weather.”

“We are aware of an issue with 4G and LTE connections & our network engineers are working to resolve quickly,” Verizon Wireless’ support group said via Twitter on Wednesday evening.

Verizon 4G service is available in Charlotte and Wilmington, N.C., but is not yet announced in the Triangle. 

The company has been rolling out the faster network to boost sales of data plans and draw new customers. The carrier last month introduced its first 4G handset, the HTC Corp. ThunderBolt. Customers can also use the 4G network to connect laptops to the Internet.

While the glitch affected data services, people with 4G handsets could still make voice calls. Those with third-generation service, like the Apple Inc. (AAPL) iPhone and Motorola Droid X, were not affected.
