Milwaukee 4g

Any word on when Milwaukee will be getting 4g?  I do not want to get the new iphone if this may not be available for awhile yet...

No word on Milwaukee as of yet. You can check out www.sprint.com/lte to check out the upcoming cities and to sign up for notifications when it comes to your area.

You can also check S4GRU to get an idea. keep in mind, no affiliation with Sprint.

But it will give you an idea at least. Looks like possibly 3rd round.

Keep in mind, like you, I am a Sprint subscriber. I am in no way employed by Sprint in any sense. I just know stuff.

Re: Milwaukee 4g

I am sorry that you have not yet had 4G coverage in your area. The $10 premium data charge is not for 4G, though.It is a charge for all smartphones on the Sprint network. I am sorry if you were misinformed.

Re: Milwaukee 4g

We are not stupid.  The charge was intially setup to charge consumers an extra $10.00 a month for 4G.  Then, when people started complaining that they didnt even have 4G in there area, you changed the fee to a "Smartphone" fee so people couldnt complain about it.  It seriously is insulting to your customers.

It is tough to be patient.  Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, even US Cellular have 4G LTE in Milwaukee.  (TM is comparible to LTE in 4G)

Here's an interesting study from RootMetrics regarding download and upload speeds of the 5 carriers in Milwaukee:  http://www.rootmetrics.com/compare-carriers/united-states/milwaukee/milwaukee-november-2012/

Surmised to say, Verizon wins by a landslide with average download speeds of 15.7 Mbps while Sprint came in last with 0.8 Mbps download speeds.

Re: Milwaukee 4g

Since we do not have 4g service in the area at this time I am not surprised at the result.   3g vs 4g

Re: Milwaukee 4g

It is absurd how poor the "3G" data coverage is in Milwaukee.  Why I have waited a full year living here without switching to Verizon is beyond me.

No REAL improvement to to data service in a full year and no timetable for LTE is unacceptable.
