    And the sad part is that those 5 markets already had WiMax 4G. So those of us (like me in a 1.7 million person area) who were promised WiMax years ago and never got anything, are still stuck with ever-more-miserable 3G, while people in the new LTE markets have had WiMax as an option for a long time and now have LTE IN ADDITION to the WiMax and improved 3G also.

    It isn't fair. They should have started with the previously neglected areas. (I know, whine, whine. But I just gotta vent some).

    I might have made an error on that one... although I did try a search first.

    That is all well and good so therefore the "person" who moved it should have noted that mine was posted first and rolled them together.
    Oh well. As long as the info is out there.

    Ok..I saw on the forum that the launch areas will be at 40%..What exactly does this mean? Does this mean only 40% of the cities will be covered?

    I think it's sucky that 3 of the markets are in Texas. Spread the love! But it is nice to see some progress being made.

    40% coverage in the market city/area at launch.

    IT means that 40% of the towers in that area have gone thru the NV update.

    Each city that has the NV update will have a different percentage of completion..
    Im in Dallas, and when i checked earlier were at 30-35% completion but this month and soon after they are ramping up the process to make sure the other 70% gets done faster..
