    I'm currently half a mile from the signal and 2 miles from the nearest tower, according to the technician I spoke to. In the markets that have had 4G for a while, does clearwire continue to build out to make sure all areas are covered in the market, or do they let gaps in coverage happen within a market? Because if so, that would truly suck for me.

    Who did you call to find out where you are in relation to the signal? I'd love to get that info too.

    clearwire has a page on facebook. on one of the posts, one of the clearwire people mentioned a phone number to figure out if you are covered. i will try to find it.

    they also post things like job openings which could be used to guess where they will be expanding to next

    sprints website also has a map that shows coverage..

    I live in 4g area... but my house is in a gap-of-no-coverage!!!!! In this gap..there is a big field, in this field there is a 100sqft area that has coverage!

    Now.. that just sucks for me!!!! :cool:

    thats why i hope they continue to try and cover areas within the market before they rush off in their frenzy to cover 120million people by the end of the year. I'd be extremely disappointed if that was the case because that would mean 4G would be nonexistent for me where I live and reduce the value of EVO.

    I'm close to the edge, but thankfully will have 4G coverage. I'm still excited for the Evo on 3G, but 4G is like the cherry on top!

    Hmmm...that's interesting. I would hope they'd make sure that their markets that they list as 4G are fully covered - not just some patchwork of coverage. Though I wouldn't be surprised if there were gaps.

    There are always gaps, hell Verizon has gaps on their call network to expect a new service to have full coverage in every little sector inside a "covered" area s just plain unrealistic. The question is how big will the gaps be? Wimax has a pretty broad coverage distance I don't foresee alot of gaps but will they exist? Of course.
