Sprint's LTE network goes live

Sprint's LTE network goes live Sprint has launched its LTE network today.
Customers in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio now have access to 4G LTE speeds if their phone can support it.

Says the company: "To better meet the growing voice and data demands of wireless customers, Sprint is building an all-new, nationwide 3G and 4G LTE network through the Network Vision program. This means that whether a Sprint customer is using a smartphone to share a picture or to check the Web, Sprint 4G LTE will make it faster. Coupling the speed of 4G LTE with the industry's only truly unlimited data plan for smartphones makes Sprint the best choice in wireless. Additionally, the new network provides significant enhancements to Sprint 3G service. Customers will experience better signal strength, fewer dropped/blocked calls, faster data speeds, expanded coverage and better overall performance as the improvements roll out across the country."

Outside of the five metro areas, Sprint expects to launch in more cities soon with a December 2013 expected date for a complete rollout.

Yep.. For exactly 2 seconds.. Then goes back to their crappy 3g.. So sick of empty promises..I went through this when they promised it on my first Evo with 4g which never worked either.. I personally will be switching to something else this year.

I don't care much for Sprint. I get better reception with T-mobile.

Drove in to the office (which is on 17th and peachtree.. directly in midtown ) from smyrna. I had no instance of 4g the entire way in. Total BS.

My phone showed 4g for about 5 seconds this morning in my house, and for a few seconds on Sunday.

Thank god this Evo LTE is awesome anyhow, but i'm really getting frustrated with sprint.

When i bought my evo4g they showed my house in direct 4g coverage. Of course, it wasn't. I never got signal in our out of my house. I had to drive about 1/2 mile to get anything.
