Someone at Sprint apparently knows it's my birthday, because it seems like they flipped a switch today and my phone is suddenly picking up at least two new band 41 sites in the Macon and Warner Robins area (one in each); there's probably more but I haven't noticed any obvious tower work so I had no reason to look to see if things were moving or not until today. Maybe I'll have time tomorrow afternoon to go poking around.

Lack of benefit to the consumer? How about creating an incentive for more entrance, creative offers and innovation on the infrastructure side of this industry?

Let me ask you this, how innovative is you standard electric company? I think two years ago mine finally got online payment as an option.
