Sprint 4G LTE service
« on: November 11, 2012, 06:16:47 PM »
I've noticed Sprint has 4G LTE available in select areas on LA unofficially.  Does anyone have Sprint's 4G LTE in either officially or unofficially?  Any news of how soon it will be in LA and NY officially?

About darn time. Makes sense with their published timeline for NYC.

I know.  I'd've thought LA & NYC would've gotten 4G LTE a lot quicker.  When WiMax came out it was in LA within 2 months of the release of the Evo 4G.

Just came back from LAX. While waiting outside the airport my phone showed LTE coverage.

+1, hope it performs as well as VZW's LTE.

Never going to happen. Verizon will never be beaten by sprint (at least not in the near future).

I live in Baltimore where there is officially 4g coverage and its pathetic.  You barely ever see LTE on the top of the screen and even when you do it isnt any faster.

I said as well as, not better. I'll even settle for almost-as-good. And I'm comparing to what VZW has now, not what they're capable of doing to out-do Sprint.

So I was walking on my block here in LA today and had pretty good 4G LTE service so I ran a speedtest with the Speedtest.net app.

Results: 9.8 Mb down, 1.3 Mb up

Not bad in my opinion.  How does this compare to Verizon? (I'm on Sprint)
