Sprint Confirms EVO 4G Receiving Gingerbread June 6
Sprint 4g Sucks
I've got two of these phones. Basically like them, but give me a break on the 4G. It is totally retarded. I shuffel between two covered cities and travel to others. When I click on the 4g antenna the antenna comes on, but the phone rarely switches to 4g and if it does it is brief and never operates in 4g. If I do any data I lose what tiny amount of apparent 4g I get. This method of communication is less reliable than carrier pigeon. Don't buy it for Sprints 4g service. It is shockingly disappointing.
Clearwire had their own infrustructure prior to a partnership with Sprint. This means WiMAX was an upgrade to Clearwire's already existing infrustructure; Not Sprint's.

Sprint has agreed to front 2 billion more dollars to help expand the areas of 4G. However, the decision also still remains on the direction choice of WiMAX Vs. LTE.

This leads to the next point. I wouldn't say Sprint will be "5 years behind". The switch to LTE will be easy, they already have the proper base s...
Oh you mean like having the whole thing go down for a day and a half? Or do you mean like being 1 year and a half behind? Or do you mean like having no cities covered?
Beats having no indoor coverage due to that garbage 2.5ghz signal that can't penetrate through toilet paper. 15mbps down consistently here in NYC on Verizon's LTE and with full signal indoors.
If you want REAL 4G go to Verizon Wireless. Hell even T-Mo's "4G" aka HSPA+ is better than that crappy WiMAX.
