Yeah. But it's supposed to be a major market here. If they advertise it as nationwide coverage and claim there is good coverage in this city but these are typical results here, I would call it a joke overall. That's not to say it cant be a little better in other places...
But this is the whole reason I'm not sold on things like wimax and lte. If it's like a separate connection you have to make, almost like connecting to WiFi, and it's spotty and drains battery, I'm not sure it's worth it. I like the fact that with T-Mobile I get great speeds as a standard, on my regular data connection, wherever I can get a standard connection. Which is everywhere, indoors and out, unlike wimax which couldn't penetrate indoors well at all. All without connecting and disconnecting from 4G while worrying about it draining battery.
