Does anyone know why Southern Cal (San Diego) is not on the list to get 4g. San Diego is a much larger Market than alot of other cities on the list. I am not sure what is going on in the heads of the people making the decisions over at sprint but there is a reason why sprint is losing so many customers.

San Diego has some 4G spots up and running already if you poke around. There has been testing going on in San Diego.
4G coverage runs at a different wave length than 3G. These radio waves don't penetrate buildings as well or handle hills as well. San Diego is a very hilly city. Look at the cities that have coverage now - most are dead flat.
I, like you, am incredibly eager to get 4G in San Diego. I left Sprint in 2005 for AT&T - and came back with the launch of the Palm Pre. I've been completely blown away at the level of service that Sprint offers now compared to AT&T, and compared to "Old Sprint". I'm rooting for people to give Sprint a chance again.

I don't yet have the EVO, but a business associate of mine does and resides in that area. He's able to pick up a 4G signal quite reliably there. He has nothing but very good things to say about it.
I'm debating about waiting another 272 days until I can upgrade fully. If 4G were prevalent in my area I'd probably make the jump now.
Cool! Thanks again. I love my EVO. Even on 3G it seems to work pretty fast. The $10 extra per month I pay for non-existent 4G service seems unfair, but compared to the rates of other carriers it works out to about the same if not a few bucks less. I can't wait to see how it works over 4G!
has the 4g spots in san diego been confirmed? going to have to try this next time i'm in that part of town.
any other specific 4g spots in san diego?
