Now hopefully Sprint Will be Turning On MORE LTE SITES EVERYWHERE! Also, hopefully Sprint can see about treating "US" Customers to some High Quality High End LTE Windows Phones on their NEW TD-LTE Network Very Soon.

I wish they would just name the new company Softbank because the name Sprint has a negative connotation after all these years of not providing good service. I've been with them for 12 years because they're great priced. But honestly they are hardly competitive these days. They just flipped the switch on more LTE towers here in Seattle yesterday but I still spend 80% of my time on their 3G network going 100 Kbps...

Sprint is flipping on towers as they install. Would you rather they wait and flip them all at once a year from now?!? It's asinine to expect instant blanket coverage...

Yeah, but to spend 2 years slowly installing them is funny. Talking to a tower tech they said all the lte cabinets have been sitting in a warehouse for over a year. All they were waiting for was the go ahead from sprint to install them. Also, I am sure Sprint throttles their 3G as my area used to be at 1.5mbps download and then i woke up one morning and it was at 2-300kbps and that is where it has been for 6 months now.
