    vicp260,

     

    I am so excited for LTE myself! This is great to see! Have you had a chance to use the speeds yet?

    I meant to post in the 4G section, sorry.  Well, I haven't personally been out there but if you go to the s4gru page someone has uploaded a link to their Flckr which has a pic of their speedtest.  Looks like 17 down and over 6 up, so not bad at all.  I used to get 11 or 12 down with WiMax and over 5 up though.  Let's hope those numbers stay that way or get better.

    So why aren't they upgrading in more densely poplulated areas though?  Where the first LTE has been seen is pretty far from the city of Minneapolis actually.  Why not downtown Minneapolis?  I don't get it.

    vicp260,

     

    Those numbers are pretty good. The 4G LTE upgrades are rolling out across the country. My expertise does not reside in the strategy for where to start in each state, and I would not be comfortable guessing at it. I am happy to see good reports and get pretty pumped each time I see speed tests from the areas.
