they better keep unlimited data, that's the least we deserve for the slow data speeds we've been enduring all this time.

I do believe that this Network Vision thing will definitely enhance the coverage and data speeds however, when Sprint reaches the level where VZW and AT&T is, they are likely to abolish unlimited data but surely they will come up with better tierred data plans..

It all sounds good. But they had better follow through this time on their "aggressive rollout" with LTE coverage. I jumped ship from Verizon to Sprint back in August 2010 for cheaper data plans. At the time Indianapolis was supposed to be getting 4G WiMax coverage "soon". That never happened/ And the 3G speeds here aren't all that great these days either. Those took a nosedive about the time Sprint started selling the iPhone. The old saying "put up or shut up" seems to apply. I am really trying to be patient and pull for Sprint. But they are the only ones without 4G coverage here. And their voice signal needs work too. There are way too many dead spots and they aren't even in remote areas.

I totally agree, I was there this weekend for B1G championship expecting 4g, to find extremely slow 3g. The funniest part of all of it was that for most of the event I used Verizon wifi

hope they can do it. they are taking on a ton of debt to try to change around the network (plus buy huge iphone contracts) and other things. Too much debt will sink your ship no matter what direction you are going. I hope it all goes well for them.

I wonder if they'll roll down WiMax phones to Boost and Virgin.

I'm curious about something though: How come Sprint just didn't upgrade to WiMax 2.?
