Your area officials have been trying to stop Sprint's LTE for months. It is coming down there, but it has been a headache. Madera county said that the landscape of the new equipment can't differ from the old equipment, but the new equipment is much different.

I live in the Bay Area and Sprint works great in my part of the Bay Area 4G LTE that goes as fast as 20 Mbps, but if I go to other parts of the Bay Area, then some really bad 3G. It has gotten better lately, but still has some more work to be done.

i would like to see 3G hit at least 1.5Mbps continuously and have LTE covering the 3G coverage with speeds of 20Mbps continuously THEN they can worry about upgrading Spark..to bad Nextel didnt buy Sprint they had all kinds of good ideas AND they knew how to run a network!!

1.5mbps down for 3g is pretty good. Verizon used to clock in around 300-700kbps. In San Luis Obispo I was hitting 1.9 on 3g, then moved 5 feet and got 17mbps on LTE
