With 700,000 people expected in one place, including a large number of cellphone wielding media members, Sprint is busy beefing up its network at the site of the Presidential Inauguration; the carrier is using COWS (Cellular On Wheels) and in-building repeaters to make sure that the large crowd is able to connect to its network while the president is sworn on...

Too bad Sprint doesnt deploy these in areas that have been hurting because of the Network Vision updates, areas such as Chicago. They started Network Vision there about 8 months ago and some areas are STILL being worked on, LOL.

As much as I hate your comment, you do have a point on the extra taxes taken out and if those people will show up. No they will not be able to afford to go there because of the extra taxes.

What are you talking about??? Taxes don't go up for middle class families. Unless you consider people making $250,000 and up middle class. The real joke is the guy he ran against. Thank goodness my vote counted.

I don't make over $250k, and my taxes went up. You can try the slide of hand excuse "They didn't go up, some breaks just went away", but bottom line is that This month, I started paying more than I did last month. That's an increase to me.

Really?! Your taxes went up since Jan 2? Because that was the first day of the new taxes. Are you receding to maybe state or city tax, because that's something you could actually see taking effect right now.

Actually your wrong. It definitely increased. I live in Tennessee and my Taxes increased. My brother lives in Texas and his increased as well. There was a tax increase due to some tax breaks not being renewed. So, like donkeysauce said taxes increased. How's your change now? Dumbass.
