places. Extremely usable, almost negating the need for LTE in some areas.
Once 800Mhz LTE arrives in 2014, their footprint will be even larger, with more LTE penetration through buildings for indoor use.
I'm super happy with Sprint, and urge anyone that was a victim of "Old Sprint" to give them a try. If you're in an area where upgrades have not occurred yet though, Sprint is taking care of it. Do some research and find out the timeline for your market. (S4GRU.com forums)
I can't imagine I'm the only one kicking myself for having a sprint iPhone 5s. The greatest newest smartphone and I can't even use Siri or iTunes Radio because my data is so crap
Sprint is still rolling out its Network Vision revamp of their network. It's a huge, gigantic project that even I realize was optimistic in their assessment of when it would be over. There are still 3 towers left to upgrade in my suburb but the rest are all going and I get great speeds from them when I can reach them. Unfortunately, Minneapolis is still not technically live 100% and that will take a bit.
I want Sprint and T-Mobile to keep slamming the Big 2 so they forced to stop abusing their power. AT&T kind of has me trap under my grandfathered unlimited data plan and well I need their coverage as I go in areas that T-Mobile and Sprint are a no go.
We just got LTE in my area and I recently upgraded my 4S to an iPhone 5. The results have been amazing. I've had LTE coverage in most areas in my city. My download speed ranges from 13-21MB/s and upload from 2-6MB/s. I used to hate on Sprint in my area only because of the poor coverage.
+1 to Sprint
