    I already have been there Last June 19-23. :)

    But there was 4G in Newark Airport. If I remember correctly I had about 3 Mbps just outside the airport then.

    Here were the pictures I took from NJ, Pennsylvania, and New York.

    I was in philly on Sunday and decided to check out the 4g and I ran some speed tests and wasn't impressed. Average down speed of 1.2mbps and 1.0 upload. I live in 4g coverage in Harrisburg and I average 3.5-4 mbps down. Wonder why it was so much slower.

    I was in the parking lot of Mcdonalds over on 1&9 in Elizabeth and I had full 4G.

    Also, I was over my in-laws in Union and had a weak 4G signal. They live right off of Morris Ave on Colonial Ave.

    Good question. I'd like someone who knows something about the 4G technology to give an answer if possible.

    I live in Waukesha WI just about 25 miles west of Milwaukee I have a feeling 4g will take it's sweet time for my area. When Sprint told me that I'll be paying an extra $10 for the 4g capabiltiy I thought it was wrong, since we do not have 4g in Wisconsin (yet?). I guess it is a way to pay for all those 4g towers. I'm hoping it will come soon.

    After activating my phone, a Sprint rep told me "by the end of the year" for Milwaukee.

    The 4g network here on Long Island is making progress. It looks like the equipment in south eastern queens is ready to go, but not turned on. The equipment buildout stops at the Nassau border. However, I saw a guy on the local tmobile tower (which does NOT contain sprint, but clear is listed on antennasearch.com), so hopefully they are moving over the border soon.

    I hope it gets here soon. I am at exit 39 on the LIE.

    Was in the city the whole weekend (west side, 42nd Street and 11th) was picking up a strong 4g signal the entire time. Averaging about 3mbps download.

    Don't count on it anytime soon. The network, even though it looks to be in place, is not even running yet in the JFK area. The build out stops literally right at the nassau border. Luckily, I may be able to pick up that signal once it goes on air.

    I'm the same. I have to open my windows and doors to get the 4G signal in my home. Not good.

    All I can say is my Office is in a concrete tilt up style building.
    I get the same bars inside as I do outside. I read someplace that a very
    old building with wire mesh stucco really stops the signal hard.
    I do notice that just going a few more blocks from my tower and
    the signal drops to nothing from 2-3 bars. 4G rocks when its available.

    I can confirm that there is 4G in Queens. I live here around the northwest part of Queens.
    Astoria does have 4G about 50% of the area.
    Woodside is mostly covered in 4G
    I have had the Evo for about 3 months now and i do notice that there are more areas covered then before
    just my 2 cents

    Yesterday I received a tweet from a Clearwire Wimax account that told me Orlando will go live on September 18th. The @ tweet to me is mysteriously gone. I even RT'd it and that's gone from my timeline too. o_O

    It was strongest in front of Capital Law School. I'm not picking it up anymore either.

    I got spots of it so far coming in from LGA. Now I am in Teaneck and thankfully its pretty consistent because my hotel internet is horrid. .8mb down with hotel, 4 with phone. Looks like I am tethering for the week.
