    Just starting to pick up some LTE signal in Nashville over the past few days though it is intermittent. So far near work and home so that is good. Signal has normally been 3 or 4 bars as well so signal is strong.

    Checked the app last night. Theres actually spots of it downtown in the Nicollet Mall area already :D

    Probably not on all the time yet, but people are picking it up during when sprint is testing the towers.

    Which is awesome, except for the HUGE hole that is St. Paul. :vollkommenauf:

    That said, I have been picking it up in more places it seems, especially when I'm over on the Minneapolis side. Hoping that it picks up dramatically when this snow finally melts off (though the foot or so the past couple of days doesn't seem like it's going to help us get there any quicker).

    As far as speeds, I don't expect it to stay this high, but picked up LTE briefly over by the airport and pulled down 31.12 Megabits down, and just over 8 up.

    I'm in kc and they are usually 3-8 down with some areas that are way faster but it's not totally common.

    Flash a Verizon prl and use as much data as you can every month...sprint will terminate you and you won't have to pay the etf fee....go to xda and search for this phone for instructions on how to do it

    I meant 3-8 mbps. It's plenty fast in my neck of the woods.
