Is there any plans in the works to put up WiMax in Milwauke WI?
When I bought my Evo over the summer, multiple sales people at several Sprint stores, Best Buys, etc said that it'd be here by the end of 2010.
I am at the point where I am tired of paying a premium on something I don't actually have a chance to utilize.
When is 4G coming to Milwaukee WI?
Many of the cities and locations that have 4G are much smaller markets than the Milwaukee area.
The sales people I talked to where falsely advertising the product and I feel cheated.
I completely agree. Pretty much the main reason I bought my EVO 4G was for the 4G... and I also was told it would be here by 2011. Well, thats quickly approaching guys, could we at least get a status report? I've been paying the extra money for months now and I've never even used it once.
I bought the EVO last year because of the 4G too...first the sales people said the 4Gwould be available by the end of Oct 2010, then that was changed to the end of 2010 and now what? I may have to cancel Sprint and just pay the penalty...I'll be better of with a prepaid like Virgin or NET10-no extra fees and unlimited everything!!!!!!!!!!!! And I actually got full bars with Net10 at work as compared to roaming for Sprint network!
There are few spots of 4G in Wisconsin and Milwaukee is not one of them
So far we can see on the coverage map: Madison, Green Bay, Fond Du Lac, Appleton, Oshkosh and Iron Mountain.
The best way is to check on http://www.clear.com/coverage
I got off the phone with sprint just now complaining about extra $10 charge for 4g we aren't getting.
They said the fee is no longer for 4g, but a premium for all smart phones. They also said they no longer
rely entirely on clearwire for their 4G and are putting up their own 4g towers. Maybe this is one of them.
The sprint guy said that it's not in the milwaukee area yet though, so may this is a test tower.
I say we boycott Sprint. Sprint has no intentions to give a definitive answer as to when 4g is coming to Milwaukee let along Wisconsin. We all were told upfront the $10 extra was for 4g now they wanna claim is for data downloads. Thats ****. I had a Windows Mobile phone and there was no such charge and was always downloading stuff but now there is something so special.
Ive read several other post that Sprint will not respond to. They will not answer. The network is slooooow. Not even getting advertised speeds for 3G. Cant make calls half the time because the network is always busy. ATT has even jump light years ahead with HSPA + . Sales rep in Radio Shack made Sprint look sorry yesterday with the Iphone 4 and how fast it would load up a web page compared to Sprint. My Evo looked like a big useless Brick!
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
