Such first world problems we have.

You get what you pay for. Have fun with your 3G service.

Please don't look at big red as much of an improvement over Sprint. Ah Verizon, the huge network with the huge prices and tiny data caps. I think the only reason why I still put up with them is because I'm on a grandfathered unlimited data plan (and to keep it I'll have to purchase a phone off contract at full retail price for any upgrades) for my phone while carrying four other lines for family, so it would be an inconvenience to move everyone off to another carrier.

Sprint's mistake was going all in with WiMax which was a gigantic flop and their customers are paying the price for it.

What do you suggest Sprint should have done instead of deploy WiMax?

Should have found a better partner than Clearwire which is a borderline ponzi scheme or gone with LTE from the start.

I don't even want to hear the "it will be the fastest LTE when it's all done"...such garbage. I wish I knew this way before renewing my contract and buying a cool samsung phone that can't get 4G LTE because of the carrier.

I'm paying the early term fee and switching to Verizon...
Thanks for starting this thread. It reminded me to take a look to see if they had the LTE rollout scheduled yet for Las Vegas. They don't.

Our new Cricket phones were delivered today. I'm also going to pay whatever I have to in order to escape the Sprint madness. We pay a LOT for six phones, including $10/mo EACH for "premium" data service (4G) that we have no access to. Screw that. Bye bye, Sprint.

I find it hard to believe that there's a bidding war on a ponzi scheme. Their partnership is paying off now isn't it?

LTE wasn't ready at the time.

Sprint's deployment of WiMax and partnership with Clearwire was a really smart movie.

I can attest to that not being an accurate representation of Verizon LTE speeds in NYC.
