4G goes live in Dallas Fort Worth area on MetroPCS
After blanketing Las Vegas not long ago, MetroPCS's LTE network is up in the Dallas/Fort Worth region as well. Currently the only phone that can take advantage of the 4G speeds, is the Samsung Craft, which is offered for a dollar shy of $300 on contract by MetroPCS.

That probably makes it the most expensive carrier-subsidized phone, appealing only to early adopters. It is not even a proper smartphone, but the urge to use it on the first commercially available LTE network in the US, will cost you $55 per month. Early user reports on the Samsung Craft's download speeds are unimpressive, the handset seems to slow down to 1Mbps, which the users of other 4G-like services, such as Sprint's WiMAX and T-Mobile's HSPA+, can only smile condescendingly at.

What did you expect?? I bet 1mbps seems lighting fast for metro user even though its still lower that 3G for national carriers.
