S4GRU Compares our LTE Coverage Map with Sprint's in St. Joseph, Missouri

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, August 3, 2012 - 4:25 PM MDT   There has been a lot of discussion around our forums, and certainly in many other places, how Sprint's LTE coverage maps of launched markets have been pretty overly optimistic. To say it nicely. Today I decided to create some LTE coverage maps for St. Joseph, Missouri for our members usage, and for grins, I pulled up the Sprint LTE coverage map for the same area. The difference is pretty noticeable.
