    Default 4G in San Francisco

    Yep. its for real and real fast. However: It covers from San Francisco to Oakland to San Jose but a) does not touch Marin County (just north of Golden Gate Bridge) and b) only covers half or the city. I am flip-flopping between 3G and 4G all day depending on where in the city I happen to be. Needless to say, my battery drained pretty quickly (where's that Froyo when you need it?) Now, I NEEDS it! I did enjoy the quick web pages and other programs that access the net. Definitely wanna see more of that. Any other thoughts?

    I'm in the East Bay, past the Caldecott Tunnel. Alas, no 4G here either.

    Remember that 4g doesn't penetrate walls very well, and u have alot of big buildings there.

    Line of sight. REALLY? Is 4g so different from 3g? I've been using 3g indoors for years with no problems.

    VERY different.

    4g is ~ 2.5GHz

    3g (for Sprint) is ~1.9GHz

    Lower the frequency the better the penetration and distance.

    The more you know....
