    Came in to work today in downtown LA, and decided to turn on the 4G antenna just to see what would happen. Surprisingly, the Evo picked up a 4G signal. I was surprised, since 4G isn't scheduled to be rolled out in LA until later this year. Not that I'm complaining.

    It's fast, man. Looks like that $10 Evo tax is paying off.

    Dont hold this to me but i heard i will be rolled out in SD by the end of summer. Rumor has it that they are already rolling it out in Oceanside right now.

    P.S. i heard the 4g by end of summer from an RS employee that just had talked to the Sprint rep an hour before i came into the store. I'd take that with a grain of salt really.

    It's supposed to roll out in SD, too. Give it a try, they may have some towers up already.

    No. In Sprint's press release, they listed Anaheim separately. You guys are due to get 4G by the end of the year, too.

    Yeah, I was wondering how far the 4G signal goes too. I live in Pasadena which is only about 10 miles east of LA so hopefully it has a good range.

    Were you near a Radio Shack? Reports say they have been getting WiMax repeaters for launch day.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if there will be 4G service in limited areas around Anaheim and SD. This was a pleasant surprise in LA!

    I would love for SD to get it soon. What I'm hoping for is the Walmart deal to go through. I live right next to Qualcomm Stadium and there is a Walmart less than a mile from me.

    Fed from what? Doesn't a wimax repeater need an original wimax signal?

    Unless they have wimax wireless routers now?

    Yeah, even if that were the case, there needs to be a wimax signal already present to repeat, no?

    It's a little bit of a secret but there have been towers in Santa Monica for about six months, it's a slow test deployment but you'll see a couple more here and there, with a full roll out by the end of the year. Great news right?!

    That sounds awesome thanks for the info ! I live in Santa Monica and was worried about waiting for 4g coverage. Any idea of what's the coverage like? Is it usable around town or only in small spots? I can't wait for Friday!!

    I know when NYC gets its coverage, it's going to extend 15 miles around Manhattan. So maybe it's the same for LA?

    Be aware that Sprint is in the active testing phase for LA. That means you will see access on the EVO, but likely for a short period of time until they turn it off again.
