Anybody hear about 4G LTE in Chicago yet?

Did anybody hear or get any 4G LTE coverage in the Chicago area (besides the Waukegan area)? Send a reply if you hear any additional news?

There's LTE in Wrigleyville! It's not the 27 Mbps others are seeing, more like 10, but it's still wayyyyy faster than the 300 kbps I usually get!  Can't wait for this to roll out everywhere! Go Sprint! The little engine that could.

Got it briefly while going north on Ashland between Ogden and the Green Line stop on Lake Ave. Blazing fast.  Nothing the rest of the way for me up to Fullerton.



EDIT: Later this afternoon, I got an LTE signal near the Elston Target (near Elston, Western and Diversey intersection) and it stayed with me as I drove down Elston to Elston/Damen/Fullerton intersection, got onto 90/94 there and continued through the North Ave exit.  Lost it as soon as I got onto North Ave.  Here's the path described where I had it: http://goo.gl/maps/6TyHH

Does anyone know if the Galaxy S3 shows 4G LTE or just 4G on the screen when connected to LTE? I live in the south suburbs outside of Chicago, and ocasionally I will see 4G in place of 3G on my phone.

If it's showing 4G on your phone, it's LTE since the S3 can not use WiMax 4G.  Glad to hear you're starting to see it!
