Little update about this, I went into a sprint store and asked a rep about 4g being official launched here, she told me that within 2 months it would be up and running. That was 9 months ago.
I also found out that the little bit of a 4g signal I was getting was part of the ISU campus wimax that sprint put out, just for the college. So I highly doubt this area will ever get true wimax coverage.
But since sprint has start doing their "tower upgrades" my 3g speed has gotten better, I went from barely .10-.30mbps to closer to around 1mbps, I know it isn't even close to other carriers, but at least they are trying.
It is getting harder and harder for me to stay with sprint though. Verizon launched 4g in Terre Haute, my work has 4g cards. It is just a fast as my home cable internet service.
