Laugh all you want but continueing to act as if Sprint doesn't have a growing LTE network much like AT&T and Verizon did starting out you are delusional. So what if it wasn't immediately lit up in 100+ markets yet, do you honestly beleive it wont get there eventually just like the others?

I am in the Houston LTE market. It's been fleshed out really well and I regularly test phones on the network all the time. Currently on my 3rd LTE unit and getting great coverage, great speeds, and I know that just like all things that have to be built out, it will eventually be in many other places. It recently made the rounds from my tech office out to my home, so there is only 1 or 2 spots on my commute that I don't get LTE. So for 98% of my day I'm in LTE coverage and all 3 different units (2 from samsung, 1 from motorola) all held the 4g signal very very well.

Speeds vary from 31Mbps down to as low as 11Mbps. I rarely see 11, and the constants are always around 18 and 21.

Currently there are no phone launches being announced until after the holidays, and the only ones currently on the books are for Win Phone 8 and whatever Blackberry dishes out on Jan 31st. So if you are looking specifically for Windows or Blackberry, Sprint won't be launching those until 1st and probably 2nd quarter 2013.
