It can go either way.

Sprint did say that they would be under-promising and over-delivering(at least in regards to speeds).

But they did also make errors before on that page.

will launch 4G

LTE

devices coming to

Sprint

." under the link, but when I clicked the link, it went to the regular 4G LTE page where they have the 3 announced devices but no further information on the markets that will be rolling out LTE. I hope they have something in the works where you can search for your area and see when/if it is coming to your area. I even tried going to the cached page, but that was the same page as the current one.

Remember that the first cities announced were all Ericsson cities. We haven't heard the Samsung and AlcaLu cities yet. Stay tuned.

It's a good thing for Sprint (regarding Network Vision) that its decommissioning towers identified as overcapacity and retrofitting existing ones. Getting local approval for new towers is a pain. Perhaps these new microcells will have better luck in getting approved, especially in dense areas.

I read somewhere that stated Sprint will be ushering LTE on the current Wimax cities throughout 2012 and they are doing it rather quickly. But damn if I can't find that article.

We wrote a quick blurb about this subject back in October. There is a slide that Sprint has shown all over the place that say they will covering 123 Million Americans with LTE by the end of 2012. Leaving 67M people in WiMax areas and 56M in Non-WiMax areas. Sounds like they are going to be mixing it up.

What Sprint did was imbed the 22 communities into the metadata for the LTE landing page. I'm sure that they intend to rollout LTE faster than they will tell people to make customers happy. I'm sure hoping that, anyway.

 

When you visit the landing page for LTE, right click on the page and click on 'View Page Source' (if using Firefox), and the 5th line down says: "meta name="description" content". That is where they put that line of code that shows up in yahoo and google searches for Sprint LTE.
