I will have to say that I am a little impressed with the LTE coverage in the Atlanta area for a technology that just came out. I expected Sprint to show LTE coverage only within the 285 corridor. They actually have it in the outskirts of Atlanta area. Awesome. The same goes for Texas as well.
The full list of cities where Sprint LTE service is active is below.Atlanta, GA; Athens, GA; Calhoun, GA; Carrollton, GA; Newnan, GA: Rome, GA; Dallas, TX; Fort Worth, TX; Granbury-Hood County, TX; Houston, TX; Huntsville, TX; San Antonio, TX; Waco, TX; Kansas City, MO-KA; St. Joseph, MO
Why would Chicago not be one of their first markets? Real dumb move Sprint
( I Hope This Sig Dont Offend Anyone)
COME SEE ME
Most users don't realize the terrible struggles that Sprint has had in converting the legacy Motorola equipment to the new Samsung Network Vision equipment in that market. Chicago was originally one of the original markets Sprint planned for LTE, but as has been explained by Robert over at S4GRU, Chicago is coming and Sprint has put its foot on the accelerator there due to the rebuild.
Maybe you should have tried to explain that as opposed to coming down on the poor guy who has to suffer through the poor network performance in Chitown, yet has enough trust in Sprint to ask for when the light at the end of the tunnel is coming.
Fiber backhaul for Verizon in Southern Illinois in 2013 - about time.
Also, LTE sites are getting switched on in the West Suburbs, mainly because those are the areas that need Network Vision in the Chicagoland area the most. For people in the city, help is on the way.
I would explain my level of network expertise but I won't. I feel a push in areas that bring more income would be better, but I guess losing more customers is a smart thing. Chicago has struggled with Sprint for quite sometime and we're looking for some relief. It's a struggle here with even 3G devices. But hell who am I to vent on a service I've been with over 16 years.

Not harsh when someone comes into the discussion making Trolling remarks like:
and they don't even have all the fact....I was just stating Sprint wasn't the "Dumb" one here (wasn't my choice of words). and be the OP's remarks that he's been with Sprint along time and in Chicago, something tells me this should've all the more obvious to him/her.Why would Chicago not be one of their first markets? Real dumb move Sprint
I don't understand how I can view the upgrade map and it shows voice and data has been upgraded lately all around us and the people I have spoke with that have Sprint say it is horrible, dropped calls, unable to make calls and slow if any data. I have not had one person say get Sprint, but I'll keep asking around, does worry me though. I don't want to switch, lock into 2 years and regret it.
Who cares about LTE. I bought an Evo 4G 2 years ago and was told 4G was coming. Never saw it. Sitting here with 3G still and right now as of this moment I get a whopping .14 Mbps data speed. Sometimes it's so slow I can't even get a map to download on Google Maps. Forget the LTE. Make 3G what it suppose to be.
