    Sprint 4g LTE is a joke in San Antonio. My wimax Evo 3d used to get an average of 3mbps at work and home. Sometimes peak at 9mbps. I got my SGNote 2 Monday and my speeds have been 200-300 kbps on 4g LTE. I would time out trying to log into this forum or even trying to hit the Play Store. I don't even get an LTE signal at my house which is between 2 wimax 4g towers. Now I read Sprint mvno clients Boost and Virgin are throttling heavy users with unlimited data plans. Is it true if Sprint changes terms of my contact then I can cancel all 4 lines of service after 13 years and go to att or Verizon without early termination fees?

    Well first off, you are saying some interesting things. The woman towers have very little to do with the lte stuff unless the are due to get upgraded. When they announce that an area has lte, it doesn't mean it is done, very far from it. They usually announce at like forty percent complete. I won go to sensorly . com and see if your house is covered and at what strength. You may be at the very edge like I am. When I hit a good area, I get as good if not better speeds than when I was with Verizon. Are one 20 down or so.

    Next, boost and virgin changing policies have nothing to do with your sprint contract. If you are on boost, you may be able to get out of it. But sprint just rents the bandwidth to them.

    Actually, the Wimax towers have nothing to do with LTE. Any Wimax towers are Clearwire's towers. LTE is not being added to Clearwire's towers. It's being added to Sprint's towers. Clearwire's towers may be upgraded to 2500MHz LTE in the future, but not as part of Network Vision.

    The point I was making is that sitting at my desk with 3 to 4 lte bars I still only get 50-500 kbps. My 4g connection goes in and out (4 bars down to 3g) like a Prairie dog in his burrow without me moving my phone 1 inch. They are supposed to reach "full" 4g LTE coverage in San Antonio by June of next year. We shall see, but I am hopeful.

    Except that Sprint bought Clearwire and those towers are now theirs so I am kinda guessing they will be part of NV

    Except the deal isn't final yet and your phone doesn't support LTE-TDD when they start converting the towers from wimax to LTE. Next year.

    The signal bars don't gauge lte signal. That's your voice signal

    The deal has approval from everyone involved and the government is not going to bother with that one. Any asset gain by sprint is a positive.

    Well, now that I think about it, the main point I intended (and failed) to make was that it doesn't matter how close he is to Wimax towers when talking about LTE reception. He could be directly next to a Clearwire Wimax tower but 5 miles from the nearest Sprint LTE tower and have a bad LTE connection.

    That said, the deal won't be final for a while regardless of how much resistance they get from the government. Even if the deal were finalized tomorrow, that doesn't magically make those Wimax towers next to his house broadcast LTE. The 2500 MHz rollout that would be on the Clearwire towers isn't even scheduled to begin until second half of next year regardless of how much of Clearwire Sprint owns.

    Random mediocre speed test. Turned lte off and put 3g on and got 74, 1.9, and .9.

    Not too bad.

    First day of LTE coverage in my neighborhood. New Orleans market. Not bad considering the signal strength and the tower hadn't yet been approved for use.

    Really hope that it gets better. Hspa+ is better than that.

    You want to see painful? Look at these speeds in Memphis (where 4G was just launched)....
