  4. First???

  9. I agree with R3D3. C’mon guys, you’re “professional” writers!!

  10. 4g final in south Florida. if u live in Pembroke pines or north fort lauderdale are near commercial blvd 4g treatment will show up on your Evo :) Must be testing the area, I’ve had it for a few eeks here.

  11. What about New Orleans? Verizon has New Orleans scheduled to have 4G coverage by the end of the year (with no 4G device!!) Come on Sprint!!

  14. 4G FIST PUMP!!!!

  15. 11.46mb Dl and .91 UL in edison NJ inside office building on 7th floor. nice.

  16. So these 4g speeds are suppose to be 3-6mbps, but that’s pretty close to the speeds AT&T already has for 3g. So is it really worth this 4g or is this all just Sprint money cow 4g hype!

  17. Can San Diego get some? Eighth largest city in the US.

  18. What about hershey PA, can we some of that too.

  19. No 4G where I’m at in NYC :(

  20. These announcements are made once they have turned on all of a particular city. People in some parts of those cities have Wimax service long before the official announcement is made. @NYCHitman 1, unfortunately, Wimax is not particularly good at penetrating solid walls, so, you might not get a signal if you have too many concrete walls between you and the cell site. This is one of the reasons it is taking so long to roll out the service in the larger cities, they need to get a lot more sites active to get good coverage.

  21. 4g Hershey squirts

  22. @Mike
    There’s no way that AT&T’s 3G is pulling 3-6 mbps, I had them for 3 years….trust me. Also, 3-6 isn’t set in stone. I’ve gotten over 8 mbps on a single 4G bar. It’s all about cell traffic, physical obstacles and time of day. Overall, I’m very pleased with Wimax coverage here in Trenton, NJ.

  23. im in the tampa area and have been able to use the 4g for a few months now, but for some reason now that it has gone “live” my connection is worse and my speeds up and down are horrible.

    I get 2, maybe 3 down and 150k up and its been like that for a while.

    Can anyone help me out here with why I have such crappy speeds?

  24. @bobert…. wtf? Lol. Haha.

  25. just scanned: 4G not here yet: Boca Raton, FL, 4Nov2010

  26. Any one in los angeles getting 4g? I am in Lawndale, Ca and I am picking up 4g
