Here please sign this petition to get Sprint 4G in Phoenix! We truly need it! 3G is so bad here!
Hello fitzfan123, I can understand your sense of urgency in the matter, but rest assured that we will be bringing LTE service to Phoenix as soon as possible as part of our Network vision project, you can read up on some of our progress, and plans in newsroom.sprint.com, sprint.com/4g, and network.sprint.com.
Also, take a look at the following,
In a nutshell, between the 2nd and 3rd round.
Also keep in mind, densely populated areas will take longer then less populated areas simply because they have many more towers in those areas.
Every link you posted said nothing about Phoenix getting 4G LTE????? We've been told that since 2009 that the original 4G was coming soon! Nearly 4 years later and nothing! Oh you better believe people here are pissed off about it! Including myself!
you do understand that originaly clearwire was the one footing the bill to build out the 4G Wimax...and that they lost all backing and just about went bankrupt....which answers why the wimax ended..this time sprint is the one footing the bill and actually following through with it...another half way to the finish line deal would pretty much seal the deal on people leaving to another carrier.
And they, Sprint, just got an influx of cash from Softbank to help overhaul existing 3G locations that are scheduled for later LTE upgrades so that users can see improvements sooner rather then later.
speeding up the backhaul upgrades to the current network would for SURE help once they start doing the NV upgrades...not to mention get people back to being slightly happy until LTE is actually in their area..oh they'll still complain that they still dont have LTE...but at least the 3G will hopefully hold them over a bit
