    Even though Sprint has opened up these new markets for LTE none of the mentioned markets are near or at 100% complete. Sprint still has its work cut out but It's nice seeing some progress

    Yes I agree. AT &T has had plenty of time to push ahead but isn't moving very fast from the way it seems.

    Default Sprint?

    AT&T just went through a labor dispute with their telecommunications employees. Most likely the cause of there slow LTE deployment. I'm just glad that they have Denver as a soon to be city with LTE.

    They have Milwaukee as well. I dunno I guess with how big AT&T is they should be able to deploy faster and yet...

    I know it's never gonna happen, but now that carriers are standardizing on lte, it sure would be nice if they could share the airwaves and allow lte connections for competitor's customers reciprocally.

    It would save them money, to boot, and maximize utilized spectrum.

    But, at the moment, lte coverage is a competitive advantage.

    But unlike Sprint's back bone ATT's works! And it works well! I get 10meg down on HSPA+. Enjoy your broken 3G speeds if you do not have LTE! 500K does not cut it for me!

    I haven't seen where Sprint said they were done with any rollout of LTE...I have seen and read where they are currently "in-progress" and the rollout is underway.
    Sprint's allowing it's subscribers to utilize the LTE signals before they ever finish the rollout in a market area and I think in some ways that is a mistake, because you get people complaining about something that 1)isn't finished or complete, 2)may not work fully and 3)isn't meant to be on-par with the final product that they offer...people just don't seem to get it, it's being "worked on"...but folks want instant gratification when it comes to data on a mobile carrier....

    I have seen where AT&T isn't making such great decisions, like keeping it's LTE turned off until a market is completely done which doesn't give anyone a taste of what they'll offer...and the whole facetime-iphone thing that's being investigated by the FCC ....
    I won't go into how AT&T is rolling money from the home broadband side over to the cellular side and leaving people with their old, copper broadband (ADSL++2) service in the dark when it comes to getting ANY sort of upgrade. I've had 6meg DSL for 5 years now since they installed the DSLAM..they have NO intention of ever upgrading this area with U-verse unless the equipment becomes free to them...
    Hell, the DSLAM we have now came from an Atlanta CO that got upgraded to U-verse...they didn't want to put it in here and only did so because the equipment didn't need to be purchased.

    Isn't fair for me to pay their price ($47.95/month for 6meg) when they take 80% of that as profit, then turn that profit over to cellular to help them do what??!!? They aren't making great strides in cell markets that I can see. But wait...if I agree to take their old played-out phone service with a "bundle" package, I can save $5 a month and get my DSL for $42.95/month.

    I think they should be REQUIRED to give people faster service (which wouldn't be hard for them in my area, I watched them run the 2 24-pair fiber lines under my driveway when they powered this hub from the CO back in 1996)
    I still have the same service they rolled out back in 2008 and the only thing that's changed about their service is now I have a 150gb/month cap on my home broadband. I dare not attempt to buy an AT&T cell phone, even though they put a tower 1 mile from my house (because the hub nextdoor to me powers the cell phone tower that's a mile away)...the service still sucks with them, and the data speeds are awful. Explain to me how that's better than the service I get with Sprint. I live 1 mile from the AT&T cell site, literally it's right behind my friends house, and the service isn't any better than Sprint, who's tower is 6 miles from me as the crow flies. I roam on Verizon who has an agreement with AT&T to use that tower up the road...but AT&T is no saint in the picture..no need to bash one over another because they all have their flaws.

    Why are you all bashing on sprint good for you if you can afford the most expensive carrier in the country IMO their plans don't match the speed or cost of the network. I'd hate to have to constantly monitor my data usage better to have unlimited on a slow network than have 5gbs on a fast network where you'd use it all in a week with regular usage.

    Actually vzw has always been more expensive than AT&T. And the price is worth it to not have bad customer service, dropped calls and slow data.

    Just my experience. Had them for 3 years so far through work and not getting better. It's still area dependent so lucky for you.

    If Sprint users are lucky enough to be in an LTE area then the data for Sprint prolly isn't to bad! I however couldn't take the speeds any longer and came to att. Its been better and much better coverage so in my travels. But if your in an LTE city and you never travel outside the city then you got a good deal going! otherwise I would look else where unless this recent buy out helps them out a ton! But time will tell.

    More than a ton because they made it clear that the buyout wasn't changing anything but sprints financial situation unlimited data is staying network vision is going as planned and more city's are getting lte. And plus think about it Verizon and att at first didn't have a lte network either at some point. Sprint may be late to the party but are bringing unlimited data with them.

    While I see what your saying but the truth is....For the avg user unlimited data means nothing. My family is lucky to break paste 1.5 gigs. Now I know many power users that can use a full 3gigs of data without an issue and trust me so cant I. But truthfully I have WiFi every where I go. Work/office, home and many shops that I hang out. So I use like maybe 1gig a month and I use my data a lot! Just saying. If you can use over 3gigs on Sprints network then awesome it still doesn't change the fact that for many users the 3G connection is deathly slow. I'm sure it will be fix but I see that a long ways away but they are working fast to fix the problems and I am happy that they are!

    I too travel a lot for work. back and forth to Boston and NY most of the time. Like you I also never have to worry about overages. I use less than half of the data that I buy. So again for the avg user "unlimited" doesn't save me anything. I know "Unlimited" is a selling point and its a good one to have. But again att is much faster and it offers me better coverage for a whole $10 more a month and I am limited to 3gigs but for me thats more than enough. But for you you use more data and thats fine. I'm just giving some insight on why Sprint's "Unlimited" plan really in the bigger picture doesn't do them any good as of right now. Now down the road when they get a "good" 3G back bone in every state sorta like what Verizon has then the unlimited plan will matter.
