    Ok this sucks my tooshy! What the heck is up with Denver? I’m getting a little tired of seeing everyone else getting lte while one of sprints largest markets sits by watching ! Not even on the soon to come? Screw you sprint!

  • thecharrr

    Still no LTE here when regional carriers have it

  • Damian Salvatto

    What in the world…..This is crazy, Had it in Yonkers, NY. The over the weekend it just disappeared .

  • Josh

    What the heeeeeeecccckkk… where is Columbus, GA? Five months ago there was a Sprint press release that 28 cities were going to be lit up in the “coming months” (which DL reported). Let’s see… it’s been… five months? Too bad I left Verizon… lame.

  • K. Shoun

    Still no Seattle? How disappointing.

    • bigmatt

      Longview??? at least do seattle or Portland….not that I care I have verizon

  • Jonathan Williams

    If I actually had Sprint, I would care that LTE is finally in Gainesville. Go Gators!!!

  • Scott Meyer

    I think they are testing in Philly. Wife asked me yesterday why “4g” keeps showing up on her phone. This is good news.

  • PhoenixPath

    I’ll be interested when it’s no longer CDMA.

    • Jared Tatro

      Yeah but Verizon is the best and they’re CDMA. so how do you figure GSM is so much better?

      • PhoenixPath

        So Microsoft is the best? VHS was the best (v. Betamax)?

        Do you always judge who’s best by who’s winning?

        Verizon may the best at certain things… but I highly doubt it is the things you are thinking of.

  • Mike Boodoo

    Girlfriend had Sprint since last November and already canceled the other month. Service was crappy and couldn’t deal with the terrible 3G speeds (GNex). Ironically, she would get 10x more dropped calls when CALLING SPRINT’s Customer Service. Not looking back.

  • Qbancelli

    Lol, they call those cities?

    • Diablo81588

      There’s some fairly big cities in there. Tampa? Corpus Christi? New Orleans? Miami?

  • Fahad Beg

    I have Lte with sprint in my town so yeah, its pretty fast

  • AJH

    They have a couple of towers up in NYC and NJ now, probably just test towers, though.

  • meetloaf13

    Very little love in the West.

    • Eric

      Definitely! My family and I got so fed up with Sprint and their slow ass network in Arizona that we switched to Verizon. Sure I’ve read how Verizon likes to f*** over their customers but with Sprint we were promised wimax and never got it (old tech anyways) and now the LTE time frame is up in the air.

      • meetloaf13

        Yeah, I’m kind of hand-cuffed ATM, all 4 of us have our contracts staggered. I need to get on Verizon as well. They’ve had 4G in my little town for ages now. Right now my Note II is crippled due to crappy 3G (I can clock in 200kbps down if I’m lucky). Also, lack of coverage kills my battery too.

    • aznmode1

      Yup. I used to love Sprint (9 years with them) and recommended them to everyone. I had an Evo 3d then and was getting wimax in half the places I went to but then their 3g went to crap. Was getting 1.5mbps avg and went down to less than .5mbps and at the same time decided to switch to LTE. I had a feeling they would take as long as they did with wimax so I switched to tmobile. That was a year ago and they still don’t have LTE in my area. Tmobile 4g was good everywhere and was getting avg 8mbps and they were last to roll out LTE but they are quick. I get LTE in most places I go now. I don’t regret my decision at all.

    • michael arazan

      KC is their HQ and they still haven’t rolled out LTE to st.louis? wtf?

  • nvitone23
