    I was around 20th & Layton and did not pickup a 4G signal on Friday. Has anyone been able to see a tower listing on clearwires coverage map?

    There is a tower next to the storage place on about 8th & layton. I got a full 4g signal there with a download of almost 9 & an upload over 1 yesterday.

    Let's just face it, Sprint is not the 4G network they claim to be. Many of the people I talk to that have had Sprint and want to get the 4G service have switched carriers. Especially now with Verizon starting up their service here in Milwaukee and surrounding area's. So when you see their TV commerials substitute Sprint the 3G network for when their President says 4G.

    I have family that works for a Sprint distributor and he said, we won't see 4G in Milwaukee for at least a year or more.

    Come on, just do it... Drop Sprint.

    Based on download speeds comparison of sprint 3g average sppeds (600 kbps-1.4 mbps) vs. Sprint 4G avg. speeds (3-6 mbps). Actual speeds may vary based upon plan or other factors. This information was on

    www.sprint.com/4g. Click on read more under where it says a network built for data. Also what come into play would be are you accessing 4G at peak times where there is going to be more traffic? On my HTC EVO, I got 4.81 mbps on the download and the upload, 1.35 mbps. With you 2 bars you are doing a whole lot better on the download than me and surpasing the max speed of 4G.

    Tested out Verizons 4G and seeing speeds up to 21 mbit DL. Thats faster than road runner with Turbo Boost!

    Sprint well **** 4G is not officially here yet.

    im switching carriers after I test out Verizons LTe by my house.


    Besides that!

     

    Found out my crappy service is Because Sprint sold Towers to CRIKet Wireless and now Sprints towers are over capacity. Thats why calls dont go through always busy signals when making calls and missed calls that never show up but super late Voicemails. SPRINT the LAst Year Network.

    Sprint you GET an F in my book.

    I got what I got for speeds near the tower. Anyway Sprint made a $20 million deal with Lightsquared to have a Sprint LTE network. Well I wonder if they will add any new cities to wimax after Sprint did that. I guess our wimax phones will be garbage.

    I do understand your frustration but I am not going anywhere!

     

    FYI: I have some co-workers with Verizon HTC TB. They were very excited for LTE in Madison for one day.

    The next day they found a way to turn off 4G on their phone. Yes it's fast bet battery life not so good.

    Rooting is easy as long as you have the proper environment.

    The hard part is maintaining your phone. Yes, I have a rooted EVO 4G, I was on nightly Cyanogen until CR7.1.

    Now I am on Kings Alliance Rom with Sense 2.1 + 3D widgets

    My next phone is Motorola Photon
