Default 4G speeds in Tampa?

Hi, I live in Tampa, FL and I was wondering if anyone knew what 4G speeds I could expect. I'm thinking of getting the SGS2 or the Motorolo Photon (or wait for a new phone announcement as CES) and Sprint's website says I get full 4G coverage in my neighborhood as well as indoors in my house.

If the coverage map shows that you have strong 4G, I would definitely trust it. Now, as you probably already know, signal strength can be affected sometimes by the building you're in. So if your house is older and more reinforced, you might not get full bars- but from my experience with my Motorola Photon, I haven't had any problems whatsoever with my 4G connection (and it doesn't even show that we have 4G in my area!)

I usually get 2-5 Mbps in the Tampa area. I've seen better in other areas of the country on Wimax.

Thanks guys. And my house is pretty old (made in like 1993/1994?) and the walls seem like they're thinner than cardboard.. so hopefully signal gets through

Also, do you guys know how well the signal is at USF?
