NOT All LTE Networks will be equal

Expect Sprint's LTE devices to be more expensive because of the need for Dual Band 1600/1900 Mhz operating frequencies and their in-building LTE signal penetration will weaker than that of VZW (700 Mhz) and AT&T (760 MHZishhh & TMobile 1700Mhz)
VZW's coast to coast one band frequency at 700Mhz license band pays!!

I guess I won't be upgrading any time soon....

I'm eligible for a phone upgrade today. WiMax isn't rolled out to Long Island and I see no indication it's coming any time soon. A new smartphone will add $10 a month to my bill for no additional service.

I'm not sure what their definition of "agressive" is, but I doubt they'll match Verizon's LTE pace. It looks like I'll probably be keeping my Samsung Moment for at least another year.
