If you've been looking at Virgin Mobile or Boost Mobile, but you were waiting for the carriers to stock LTE handsets, your wait is over. Each carrier has added LTE handsets for use on their admittedly limited LTE networks, but the phones are relatively inexpensive, and are available without a contract...

Well hopefully they allow there prepaid customers to take full advantage of lte I dont like sprint but I been surprised with what there lte gets. Over here in LA they already have lte and my friend that had tmobile got sprint and so far shes been happier she gets 26-30 mbps dwn n 8-10 up on her sprint s3 something she never ever saw on her tmobile hspa 42 galaxy s3 she said highest she ever saw on tmobile in LA was 6-8 dwn and 1-2 up . SO if they allowed virgin n boost customers to get those speeds without a contract and for half the price im sure lots of people will be happy.

I just recently discovered that my city, or rather, the area I'm currently located in in my city, has 4G LTE on Sprint. However, when I did a speed test, I only got about 5-6 down and 1-2 up. For a 4G LTE network that's relatively new, shouldn't it be a little bit faster?
