LTE towers have just started to go live around Seattles suburbs a few days ago. I can't wait to get my Sprint HTC One in a couple weeks. Finally trading in the old rooted EVO 4G...

I can't wait until St. Louis Missouri finally gets it. Everyone in Missouri has gotten it but St. Louis.

Not really LOL. Most of the LTE coverage is in the Kansas City and surrounding area. And lol at Joplin getting it before St Louis.

According to sensorly two St. Louis tower sites have come up this week, both near the airport. It appears as if the Saint Louis build-out has begun!

There are a few towers up in St Louis. I get it at work while in north county, but not at home in St. Charles. Be careful what you wish for, it murders my battery, lol

I just hope they speed up the expansion around the dc metro area, though they have already got quite a good amount of it covered. :) Cant wait to get a new phone with LTE

Charlotte has had 4G LTE for awhile now, as I use it on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus around my campus. Though it's not available in ALL spots on campus, which is odd. But glad to see Sprint officially announce it.
