Cricket will be launching in Chicago, Baltimore Maryland and in Philadelphia Pa in the first weeks of March. The company has grown so much in the past 3 yrs. I have been with them and they have gotten better within time. Unlike some of the contract carriers who have dipped, cricket is amazing me more and more. Now the broadband internet service. Thats cool too. Works great. Has some cons but what doesnt these days and for 35 flat rate. Whos gonna complain.

Since no one posted this, I am. They're already providing service in Chicago. So anyone in the Chicago market wanting Cricket can get it now. Once I get some money put aside, I'm gonna try and get wireless internet. I'm surprised that they have EVDO, when they only have 10mhz to work with in Illinois. I'm thinking that Cricket might only have 1 or 2 channels for EVDO. While it might not be a major issue in Gary Indiana, Chicago itself might have network congestion with all the people that could use their phones & aircards at once.
