Default Virgin Mobile and LTE

so I was over at this thread ($70 plan to lose 5GB soft cap!) and found this:

Virgin Mobile will get it shortly after. Though they may decide to give it to them first since Virgin Mobile already flopped on the WiMAX introduction.

I think that T-Mobile will likely give LTE to their prepaid but it's a question on pricing. It's highly unlikely it'll be unlimited considering they've made the true unlimited move with their HSPA+. That's what I think anyways.
So means we might be getting LTE soon. But I plan to move to T-Mobie soon cause if Sprint 4G isn't in my area then I know LTE won't be.

Kahroo, from my experience with living in NJ...be careful of where you are when you get it. Where I lived, T-Mobile had zero service for a 10 mile radius. Something to keep in mind.

LTE rollouts will still happen, WiMax is kind of a dying thing now.

Yeah, crazy right? Jersey is one the most densely populated states in the union, but we still have huge 4G holes. BTW.... There is no 4G in my neighborhood.

What part of NJ do you live in? Cause where I live T-Mobile has 4G. Idk about HSPA. But sprint has no 4G and my speeds lately just suck
