    Only a few days left in "the first half of the year". Is anyone aware of any updates to this list or to the dates? How's progress going?

    Latest update was yesterday the 25th.

    That thread gets updated almost daily! I keep checking to see how many cities have been started. Since my area is in the middle of round 2, I still have to wait a while

    Ug. If those percentages were Feb numbers than I'd be encouraged. But if those percentages are June numbers, I'm not so optimistic. At this point I'd hope to see numbers averaging around 50%, not 15%.

    According to reports, Verizon launches cities with + or - 50% completed. According to that site Sprint is going by that same structure.

    Seattle has had WiMAX for some time now.

    If cleveland getting it first wasn't bad enough, philly is also listed as a round 2. I hate you sprint. Show Pittsburgh some love.
    Mitri360 and Mercury81 like this.

    So when can we expect the 4G LTE to start working according to that link? Not until launch date, or can we expect it to start working after "1st LTE sites"? I live in Minneapolis and am upgrading phones in September. Hopefully I don't have to wait too long for LTE...

    as per the rep I talked to last week, he said the plan is to have the entire network upgrade to lte done by June of next year, but at the latest it would be December of next year.

    Not until the launch date, which is based on having 40% of the towers complete. Although you might have intermittent LTE before then when they are testing.

    I find it interesting that according to that link, not one of the five cities that has launched has 25% of their sites complete. In fact, three of the cities are well under 20%...which probably explains why many people in those cities are seeing almost no LTE coverage on Sprint.

    Furthermore, Chicago is at 38% complete but has not yet launched...and it has the same anticipated launch date as cities with sites complete as low as 5%.

    My inference is that the holdup is also being severely constrained by backhaul.

    Hampton Roads

    One thing about that last Evo LTE update.... I could have sworn I checked the 3G/LTE settings after and made sure that LTE was turned off. I guess not. I was in Chesapeake last night, eating dinner and noticed "4G" appear on my Evo. I thought- "that can't be right, I have heard NOTHING from anywhere about LTE in Hampton Roads since it seemingly dropped off the 'second round' lists many months ago".

    So of course I ran a speed test. 16.2Mb/s down and 4.2Mb/s up with 59ms ping! That is faster download than I even get on WiFi at home. Seemed to be only that one tower... I went on a "hunt" drive after and found only 3G in other areas. Later I was in Norfolk and happened to look at my phone and BAM- another 4G connect. That one pulled only 4Mb/s down and 0.8Mb/s up, but I was also in only 2 bars and moving at the time. Just 1/4 mile further, though, and back to 3G and miserable/unusable 28Kb/s down, 10Kb/s up with 800ms ping on 6 bars.

    And today I also found a 4G signal in Virginia Beach, near Pembroke.

    Not yet, but it's coming. Check out the left side of this map. There's a tiny blip of LTE. Sure, it's not much now, but it's a start. You just have to be patient. You'll forget your current frustrations in a few months when the rollout is finished.

    Press releases and Sprint maps are poor sources of information. What really matters is which towers in your area have been NV upgraded. For coverage maps with HOURLY updates go here (scroll down and select, "Sprint - 4G"). Of course, they have an app too!

    Apparently, Sprint has started the PA rollout - you can see an LTE tower between Media and Chadds Ford! That doesn't mean you'll see new towers upgraded every day, but once they start work in an area there's a steady trickle of towers until there are large clouds of coverage.

    They've started turning on towers here and there in the Detroit metro area. Downtown Royal oak, Plymouth, part of the 75 corridor are all on but on the weak side right now.
