    I decided to make a thread specific to my area which will allow everyone to list their Speed Test results once Sprint kicks in their 4G LTE this weekend.
    If you have before and after test results, that would be cool to have to compare and contrast.

    So, everyone in the Greater Atlanta & Athens Metro Area, let's see your 4G connections, Speed Test results and give us your impressions of Sprint's LTE service. List the city/area you are in to check how the coverage is.
    Reminder that only about 40% of the planned towers will be online upon activation so whatever readings you get, it will only get better as other towers come alive.

    Info from Community Blog List - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates with maps and info:

    Atlanta/Athens Network Vision/LTE Deployment schedule update - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

    Ready for LTE launching? Sprint says mark your calendar for July 15th in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

    As you should.

    Not sure if we will see any LTE connections before Sunday as they may slowly roll it out over a few days, but it is close.

    I am not even sure what the "4G" icon on my phone looks like.

    Let's hear from other Metro members.

    Cool.
    We get a few more and we can have people all over the metro area to get good info on readings and speeds.
    Only a few more days.

    Reading threads from other Sprint first tier areas, it looks like they are starting to turn on towers already, starting gradually and increasing over time. Any evidence of that happening here in the Atlanta area? I see no LTE yet in Loganville.

    Nothing here yet. Still monitoring.
    Probably start activating tomorrow.

    I can detect no difference in battery life between LTE on or off, so I just leave it on all the time. The default is on anyway.

    Welcome. The more, the merrier.

    I also leave mine on LTE/CDMA all the time. No adverse battery effects.

    No LTE yet for me.
    Maybe they will start flipping some switches tomorrow.

    Update: Still nothing on the LTE front at my current location.
    Maybe Sprint is using KC & DFW as test markets to work out any bugs before they activate the ATL.

    How come your speedtest is saying LTE, but up on the top it's showing 3g?

    Because I was out of the 4g zone, but I took the test as soon as it said 4g.

    OK well I have an AirRave at house, cause bad signal in subdivision, but I just went out to pick up food, and in Woodstock near Wade Green and 92 I was getting 4g with speeds of 17746kbps d/l, and 10141kbps u/l. It was fast!!

    Got it at my house inside and out. I am about 8 miles north of Newnan and 3 miles south of Palmetto. Good stuff. Speeds are way better than I expected for Sprint. So glad I bought an S3 now.
