Should be getting mine in oct/november
You and me both. Hopefully our market stays on track (that has been rumored).
There's an area on my way to work that has always been good for speed, but today I got my best results ever on 3g there.
beaumont texas....supposedly it's slow because they're upgrading towers in our area
3g, 72kbps download
3g, 115kpbs upload
never heard of uploading being faster but....o well that's what speedtest says
Here's my latest after turning LTE off!

Doesn't anyone have LTE speeds yet? I thought a few locations have been rolled out already.
So I called a sprint yesterday to ask when my towers will be upgraded... I was told July 30..I guess we will find out!
P_Dub, please see the post above for the official Sprint News Release. I am waiting for Sunday!
I had a glimpse of LTE in Wichita, KS today. I noticed it on and only lasted a few minutes. I was able to download speed test and run it before it went away.
Not Verizon fast, but still respectable. Hopefully the speeds will improve as the network is built out and officially activated!
Some people in KC are getting around 20-24mbps with LTE.
This was taken in Oakbrook, Ill., which is a western 'burb of Chicago. 3G speeds have slowed down a bit within the last week and a half for some reason. Was averaging 1.00-1.5MBPS pretty regularly, even in the office.
Read a couple of articles on ons4gru.com that in regards to Chicago, Sprint's strategy was to start outside Chicago proper and work their way in. So most of the Chicagoland area (burb's, NW Indiana, etc.) should have LTE by October and Chicago will be the last to get it by years end.
Supposedly areas in NW Indiana are actually up and running with LTE but it's never been confirmed.
I hit a few LTE spots in Plano, TX today. Will add pics in a bit.
Was great while in a given area, but the signal doesn't seem to broadcast far from the tower. maybe a 3 block radius
still checking it out. I could travel say east...and get it. Same road traveling west...3g only. it was weird.
Honolulu has been absolutely dreadful on 3G lately. Certain places I can literally be sitting under a tower and get almost no data throughput.
Nothing here at home yet, did it get pushed back? I thought the roll out was supposed to be city wide which is why it took so long to accomplish.
I am only getting average of 12 mbps down and 6 mbps up.
Not at all...this is a soft launch. What area are you in? Dallas for example was switched on this week yes, but scheduled completion is not until November
What exactly is everyone classifying as "verizon fast"
verizon and att both have an average LTE speed of 8-12 Mbps...sure there will be peaks of faster speeds, especially closer to the tower, but don't set expectations on that.
In the limited testing I did yesterday I got speeds anywhere from 3.5-25Mbps dload ...dependent on how far I was from the tower.
It was exactly what I expected speed wise...I was hoping signal would carry further from the tower though.
I'm in San Antonio and according to what I have read from Sprint the first cities (which includes S.A.) would be fully live on 7/15 with the other cities starting to be active in November. This was supposedly being done to guaranty we did not have the fiasco that was the wimax rollout where some parts of town still don't have it to this day.
Where did you read that...I have seen nothing that claimed full capacity on roll out date
the specific page I had was on the inside sprint now site I believe and has since been pulled
I will keep looking for it tho
here it is
so going by that..the "launch" markets should be at 40-50% completion as of today..and 100% by the date listed
this site is pretty insane
Thanks "Other Ed", when was Austin added, it never appeared on any of the lists before.
