Still beats being stuck on 3G @ dialup speeds though. What good is unlimited data when your service sucks. I heard Sprint's LTE is delayed 6+ months in major cities. Big fail. Jellybean will come soon enough to Verizon

Hahah... I love "I heard" statements, followed by judgement. Sprint's LTE is up and running solid in a handful of cities, and available in a lot more on a prelaunch basis while they work out the bugs before announcing service. Last I checked, "delayed" insinuates that there will be no service until a future yet to be determined date.

something tells me he's a paid verizon troll. I'm doing just fine with my 3g speeds on Sprint, and so is everybody I know. My friend just went today to get the iphone 5 for Sprint, and is porting her number from verizon. I'm not an iphone guy, but I am all for migration from verizon to Sprint's "dial up" speeds. Trolls, you can't shake 'em

Sprint 3G is pretty bad in our area, the guy who sits next to me is always complaining about speeds going from 20kbps to 2mbps. Sunday seems like the day speeds are good, but Monday-Saturday are bad.

I really hope that things like that get hashed out and Sprint becomes a serious competitor again. Just to keep Verizon and AT&T on their toes...

They are working on it. Lots of cities have seen improvement. Its not perfect everywhere but its getting there. Once that softbank purchase goes through Sprint will have the capitol to increase the upgrade speeds they have been doing. The places that do have 4G LTE are extremely happy to have their super fast unlimited data speeds paying half the price Verizon customers are paying.


Verizons only rebuttal "you get what you pay for" so what are they going to say when all the carriers are caught up with LTE?

unless softbank pays for it all 6G will be out before sprint catches up to verizon

You are basing this prediction on what facts? o.O

To be honest 4G LTE is not a necessity customers are just going bananas over it because their iPhone now supports LTE. Sigh.

As for the purpose of the post it is definitely great news that Galaxy S3 finally got Jelly bean just in time for the Galaxy Note 2 release Very Happy

Most customers dont even know 4G is, let alone LTE. And its great news about the JB update since I have a Sprint S3(rooted, of course)

Yes, and whatever they call 6G probably still won't get true 4G speeds.

LOL @ the person who posted "I'm doing just fine with my 3g speeds on Sprint, and so is everybody I know". Obviously from someone who could care less how slow their connection speed is. Also...good luck to all those waiting for Sprint LTE. Phoenix is still waiting for the promised WIMAX coverage. Sprints days are numbered...i'm surprised they are still in business now.

Did you miss the whole softbank merger news?? Something tells me you have no clue what you are talking about...

Ummmm...who cares about the whole softbank merger?? I live in Phoenix....no WIMAX...no LTE. I believe that proves I know exactly what I'm talking about.

According to Dan Hesse himself, "Sprint has been busy deploying networks, too. It now has 32 LTE markets deployed, and it's already begun construction in another 200 markets. Even though he said the company has faced some delays with some network equipment vendors, he doesn't expect the majority of the LTE deployments to be pushed back. And those that are delayed are not expected to be delayed more than a quarter, he said."
