    Default 4G LTE finally in some parts of Jacksonville, FL.

    I just wanted everyone on Sprint in Jacksonville, FL to know that i'm actually getting 4G LTE signals in some parts of the city. On my iPhone I was actually getting 12MB download and 6MB upload speeds. But on my GSIII i was only getting 6MB down and 6MB up. This is very good new to anyone that has been suffering with Sprint slow data speeds! I'm sure Jacksonville will be listed on the next roll out.

    Yeah there's a couple areas around the city that has service. I've been mapping some on sensorly whenever I can.

    Theres a few sites online in the Orlando area but nothing widespread yet. You'll probably see the Florida market more filled out in the first half of '13

    I heard Miami is next , and Jan 2013. I just gave up 4G wimax with my Evo to get the S3. They seriously need to catch up...!

    Sprint will catch up their build out is a lot more complicated than att and vzw. They are not just attaching new panels like the big two. They are replacing everything at the cell site except the pole. So it takes Sprint longer to upgrade each site. Also sprint is upgrading every single site that they operate nationwide. Att and vzw are not due to the frequency they operate their LTE in. So please be patient.

    I checked the Sprint LTE Sensory Map and drive through the west 295 section daily. I'm not getting 4g.
    Can anyone confirm it is on all the time or was it just up for testing and back down again.

    Edit: Seeing 4G on a regular basis as I pass the area now after JB upgrade. Looking forward to the build out.

    The areas on sensorly are still active. You may have to cycle airplane mode a couple times to get LTE to connect.

    I picked LTE on my iPhone yesterday and was quite surprised. I was on 295 leaving blanding blvd and the signal stretched to 103rd street exit.

    I had the note 2 and it was faster on 3g than the iPhone so I'm guessing it might be faster on late as well. I got rid of it because the keyboard has issues and it was overall too big.

    Funny. Had it in the same exact area Sunday on this and my fiancees s3.

    The 3g seems quicker and more responsive on this than the photon I had...

    I've had LTE at my home for months. I'm almost always over 20MB download. I've topped out at 28mb. I live over in the Fleming Island area. If you live around there, you will see LTE come on pretty quickly when you turn onto 220 off of 17. You will get it a good ways down to 220 as well until you get fairly deep into Middleburg. Now, if they could just get it up downtown I would be set all day.

    That's awesome. Part of trenton has 4g lte and its fast. Between 9 and 22mbps. Gainesville has it also but I think their still turning it off and on. Most times I got 2 to 4mbps. Then I got some great speed on the way out of Gainesville.

    I have had amazing 4g lte on Timuquana Rd . By the mas jax base and spotty by 103rd and 295. I wish the roll out would hurry up and be completed. I was told in November that by the first of 2013 it would be done 100%. Well we are 3 months into the new year and it's not done. I'm a little upset that even metroPCS has it and not sprint.

    But believe me when I say metro lte coverage fails in comparison to sprints in speed and coverage (not t-metro).

    You have to check your own facts. Not sure who told you it would be 100 by the new year..

    I think he's talking about Sprint saying that by end of 2013 all 3g areas would have lte in turn I think that meant 100%.
