What this guy discovered was that the coverage so far is somewhat spotty with Sprint 4G LTE in Potrero Hill and SoMa, and 3G CDMA in the Mission District. Peak speeds were 16.7Mbps down and 9.4Mbps up. Performance was said to vary, even within city blocks. Obviously there will soon be a full rollout of LTE coverage for the nation's third largest carrier in San Francisco. It's enough to make those aging hippies in the area stop talking about the days of free love and peace and start chatting about Sprint's unlimited 4G LTE data plans. The heroes worshipped on Haight Ashbury have gone from Jerry Garcia, George Harrison and Grace Slick to Tim Cook, Andy Rubin and Marissa Mayer.
