Nice, they've now got LTE in the two cities I'm in the most. Well I probs wouldn't switch but kudos to them.

Build is out currently underway. Costa mesa, newport, and other areas currently have lte. You can check here at s4gru.com, and go to the sensorly maps. Should be done by summer.

I tried sprint for a lil while in LA its alright much faster than what i get on At&t lte and tmobile hspa +42 over here in los Angeles, only problem was the coverage was kinda small it was available in few parts east La, few parts of Montebello and dwtwn LA . It was pretty bad one street i had lte go down the next street i was on slow 3G. Few parts i had lte it was fast up to 30 mbps much faster than what i get now on att lte which tops out at 18 and tmobile which tops out at 11 .

T-Mobile will have it by then and you'll be saving money.

I work as a tech for sprint and I too am getting annoyed by this. We are one of the largest markets in California and our 3g is unusable

if it wasnt for the free service i would be complaining. they expect the sales reps to meet quotas but how we suppose to sell s**tty service especially in places like bakersfield,ca santa barbara, ca montecito,ca and santa maria, and any places near with a radius of 30- miles

Still no Saint Louis? Come on, Sprint! This is one of the few markets where your customer base is bigger than Verizon's, for f**k's sake.

As a fellow st. louisan.......sprint, like alot of other markets, makes us wait because we're on the lower end of the totem pole. Id say that you should have Sprint LTE before the endof the summer................similar to when WiMax hit us.
BTW, im not going to rip on Sprint because we're from the same city lol

By the time Sprint builds out it's LTE network ALL other major carriers will be onto the next new technology....then Sprint will be back behind the curve.

It does suck that it's taking quite some time for the LTE/NV rollout, they did have some unavoidable setbacks(birds, suppliers, hurricaine). I agree with the slow 3G! VZW started their LTE in Novemeber 2010 and they're still not finished, Sprint's is going at decent rate based on their financial situation. Sprint does have an advantage when they move to LTE Advanced compared to VZW and ATT since its a minor upgrade with NV.
