I would switch to sprint since there's no Verizon in my area but I guess,ima have to stick with at&t which has LTE on my area.

Sprint SUCKS in my area(DMV)... There are areas that I simply cant make calls in that make my life hell. Like outside of most metro stations, I drop calls in specific spots on the highway(EVERY TIME I DRIVE THROUGH THEM), and cant make a call for about 5 minutes after I pass them. We STILL dont have service in the subway and remain the ONLY carrier that doesnt. Plus these "tower upgrades" are affecting my phone in some crazy ways. Like a few days ago my phone thought we were in arizona and my alarm didn't go off at 6am like it was supposed to because my phone thought it was 3am... I was late for work and the CIO of my company noticed it. the only time my bosses boss pays any attention to me is the day i'm 2 hours late. Sprint needs to get it together.

Sprint had two options. Market the fact that they are launching LTE in 100 small markets, or market that they are launching in ~15 large markets. Which number sounds better to you?

Launching LTE in a large market is the equivalent of launching LTE in 10 small markets.

Yes I have 2 galaxy 3s. My bill with Verizon is a whopping 10 dollars more a month and Verizon offers free tethering which I use more than I thought I would. I can now use my phone in basements and brick buildings with no problems on lte the whole time. I had similar problems while driving. I would stop and I could use data but while driving down the highway with sprint, it just didn't work at all. Especially outside of Chicago. With Verizon, even the most rural area outside Chicago has lte. It will be years until sprint gets to this point....if ever
