    I just picked up one bar of 4G at Colony Park in Anaheim (just east of Lincoln and Anaheim Blvd).

    3 bars of 4G in Buena Park at Pink's in front of Knott's Berry Farm. 4.32mb down, .98 up. Like like it's pretty constant no matter how many bars you're getting. For me anyways. Also, no 4G anywhere in Disneyland....

    Sorry to ruin your expectations, but Sprint states that south O.C. is not slated for coverage in 2010. Maybe that will change, but this is what Sprint said in this article:

    Sprint takes lead to get 4G wireless Internet to O.C. - The Gadgetress : The Orange County Register

    I always thought Long Beach should be a part of OC. :)

    Ha, ha. That would be humorous if Sprint placed 4G dependent on locations of the Sprint store.

    Actually, you might not be TOO far off. I imagine the reason Irvine is included in the LA market roll out is because the Western regional headquarters for Sprint is in Irvine, between Jamboree and Culver at the 5.

    Inland Empire is much more important than Orange County! They should focus 4g efforts there since people in the I.E. aren't fake and they actually matter...

    JK everyone, just a joke I love OC =P

    I thought the Inland Empire was somewhere outside of New York. You know, the "Empire State." I guess it actually must mean that it is REALLY INLAND from the cool coast....

    Actually, my folks and sister live in Murrieta. (Is that part of the Empire?)

    In any case, I checked Clear tower locations out there and there aren't any listings. Hopefully, it will roll out in 2011.

    I live in Fullerton/Buena Park, and got a VERY strong 4G signal. I'm near the Fullerton airport/Metrolink station.

    I only did one test late at night and got 5.6 Mb/s. Loving it!

    Yeah I noticed that yesterday too since I get off at that Baker exit to get to work sometimes. I wonder if that office complex at the corner of the on-ramp to 55N/405S has 4G... I'll go see when I stop by my other office.

    I was starting to think maybe the tower is at time warner but when driving closer to there I got nothing.
    I'm actually on paularino right next to 55 get exit.. I think it is either at south coast plaza or the performing arts area.. Oh will I just want my 4g now lol

    I'm out of town right now and I want to know if anyone is picking up 4G service in south OC cities (particularly Laguna Beach)? Much appreciated.
