Never even heard of half these places. Lawrence Kansas? Waukegan-Lake County? Barnstable-Hyannis/Mid-Cape? Why the hell is Sprint deploying LTE in places that people never even heard of? It seems Sprint is deploying in areas that arent even their network, and are on affiliate networks first, or at least places that never even had 3G and were still running 1xRTT.
If Sprint is saying they are improving 3G network performance in the nations three largest cities, I hope that means, capacity capacity capacity, backhaul backhaul backhaul and not "oh we just deployed 850ESMR so ya'll be good to go" - cause MOST customers, something like 95% of them still dont have 850ESMR capable phones to experience what Sprint has notoriously called "improved n...

cause MOST customers, something like 95% of them still dont have 850ESMR capable phones to experience what Sprint has notoriously called "improved network performance" with the Network Vision deployment.

They're upgrading capacity and adding backhaul. The 850ESMR band wont be launched for the majority of markets til beginning of next year due its still in use for IDEN, excpet a few markets will have access to it by end of this year. As what phones are capable of usingg is extremely more tha 5%, all Sprint sold stating with the HTC Evo 3D can access this band, (including the popular Galaxy S2) and just this year alone Sprint has sold over 1 Million LTE devices
