    LMFAO. Do me a favor and help me out. The 2, count 'em, 2 towers that serve the majority of the south east side of Springfield, MO are on wooden utility poles with only a few antenna. Thiis is where the major shopping areas are in town. https://network.sprint.com/search/sp...d%2C+MO+65804/

    Here is a good breakdown of the population density in Springfield is Population Density in Springfield, MO by Zip Code

    Here is the location of the two lame towers, Google Maps and Google Maps

    Can anyone help me with why the towers have so few antenna, so low to the ground and placement for an area where so many people travel and frequent?

    That area is actually pretty dense as far as tower placement goes. There are four in a four square mile area with a mile or less between the adjacent ones. The antenna are at the top of the poles and look to be at least 50-60 ft high which is fine considering how close the towers are together.

    A tower doesn't need to be 200 ft tall with a dozen antenna to be effective. As you said this is a public area with a lot of people which means more people are likely to be on their cell phones than if it was a residential area. A bunch of small towers in this case is better than one giant one covering the area that would easily get overloaded.

    Along these lines...with my family plan, my son and I use a monthly average of 450,000 according to our bill. What is that measured in? In Bytes?

    It's measured in KB, so it's approximately 450 megabytes, or 0.4 gigabytes. That's about average for "typical" users.

    And don't forget to add to that the LTE coverage that you and I now have most everywhere we go in the Atlanta area! And it just keeps getting better all the time!

    BTW, using FoxFi as a WiFi hub on my EVO 4G LTE , my Nexus 7 tablet is also now on LTE! It just doesn't get any better than this!

    So what is your point. The downside is that Softbank has a lot of debt any may not bring much too the table financially. The upside is Softbank CEO is a big risk taker and has a low tolerance for mediocre performance.

    Regardless of their debt they brought their 20 billion dollars to the table. Pure capital for Sprint to build out their LTE no matter what becomes of Softbank. Even if Softbank goes under the worse that can happen for Sprint is Softbank has to sell the controlling shares. Bottom line is that this deal has far more advantages for Sprint than disadvantages. Softbank selling its controlling shares probably wouldn't go to one solitary company. They would most likely be sold off in smaller chunks essentially giving Sprint the control again.

    Count me as one of the people who've had it with Sprint after many years of loyalty. Call the extra $10/month a smart phone fee if you want, but I too was promised 4g service that never came to my town (Albuquerque). Meanwhile 3g speeds dwindled to the point of uselessness and I had to get an "airrave" to be able to make or receive calls in my own home. The final straw came last weekend while I was travelling. At the airport in Houston I had no 3g or 4g signal. And my evo shift would not connect to the airport's wifi either - that is probably a phone issue, but why re-up with sprint to get a new one? To me it's unacceptable that I couldn't reach anyone to say my flight was delayed. I know verizon is more expensive and their service is crap, but how long is it reasonable to wait when your town has not appeared on any of the lists for the lte rollout? I am ready to eat the etf in order to get out at this point.

    I've been with sprint for 8 years and these past 3 years. Have been terrible I was promised wimax and got it almost a year after they said it would be complete and the coverage is spotty, I want sprint to succeed because of the unlimited data they offer but I've just lost all hope a lot of people are saying the softbank deal is going to help out but the sale isn't final. And won't be till next summer I want to switch to at&T but the limited data scares me so I'm stuck lol

    Trust me if I had lte in my city I would stay that's the only complaint I have before I didn't care as much but now that I don't work from home I need fast mobile data and I live in the smallest state where Verizon and AT&T both have lte but the chances of me getting lte within a year are slim

    There's upside is through Clearwire sprint has an enormous amount of spectrum available and in the next 1 to 5 years when LTE Advanced deployments start to happen, sprint is the only like likely to be able to deploy anything like what "real 4G" is supposed to be - 1 gbps by way of 3x20 MHz 4x4 mimo channels.

    Of course there is no reason to wait for that. Go to whoever you like and come back when sprint has fixed itself.

    The grass is always greener though. I'm on verizon and considering moving to tmobile to get unlimited data back.

    Count me in as one more. If you go to the forums on Sprints website, you will see that a lot of their current customers are also leaving.

    In Sprints case, I am sure the grass in greener at least 75% of the time.
