[Engadget], Sprint converts its network to LTE, plans 'aggressive rollout' - Page 3

post #21 of 86
I wish Sprint had coverage in the southeast. It's pretty much all on verizon's network unless you never leave areas with an interstate, and neither of them have any LTE coverage. : /

It's pretty much just AT&T or Verizon around here, and Verizon is particularly spotty...so, AT&T FTL

well to be fair it's not a long shot to assume he posted from a mobile device and he DID copy from the source title. i've fixed it

CDMA is not going anywhere people. Sprint has stated a long time ago that they are going to LTE for their data because they can't roam Verizon's network for 4g as they are currently using WiMax. They will continue to use CDMA for voice and text messages just like Verizon does. Neither company have plans to ditch CDMA for voice anywhere in the near future. As stated above, Sprint is doing this because they NEED to do it to compete as WiMax is very limited and will remain a "niche" for certain areas only. If they didn't go to LTE they could not compete with Verizon. Now they won't only be able to compete with Verizon but they will also be able to use their roaming agreement with Verizon, so Sprint 4g coverage should be on par with Verizon.

This is why I specified the 4G part:

If/when the firmware comes out, that's the question.

I have a HTC Evo 4G 3D so I WAS concerned about this.

Sorry, i dint realize that they title was cut off, i was doing it from my Phone, not sure if i didn't copy the whole title from the article or if there is a character limit on the "thread title" on OCN.

If this misled anyone i apologize, i didn't mean it as such.

Sigh. Sprint, you make me sad. Let's just say my co-workers and I had a little comparison between Sprint's 3G and AT&T's 3G at lunch today.

Sprint's 3G didn't make it over 50KB/s on average.
AT&T's 3G averaged about 200KB/s.

Sprint, you suck. If you'd just get your act together and not have such a crappy wireless data network (yeah, like actually having 4G in Indianapolis?), I'd have no reason to complain.
