"LTE not available everywhere"

Does anyone else have a problem with this caveat of cell phone marketing?

LTE (not available) everywhere:  forget it pal, there is no place in
the universe your phone gets LTE.
LTE not (available everywhere):  there exists some places where LTE is
not available.

Does my sentence-parse difficulty come from the expectation that NOT
should immediately precede the condition it negates?
Is it even a valid sentence to say: "LTE available not everywhere" ?

is "available not everywhere" equivalent to "unavailable somewhere" ?

if p then q <-- by observation at concert events, this is much more
likely for women than for men, yeah?  :)
