    Check this out from March 2017: https://dc.curbed.com/2017/3/21/15006154/population-density-dc-washington

    According to the infographic:

    672,228 people live within Washington's 61 Square Miles. That gives it a population density of 11,020 persons per Square Mile.

    The graphic compares its density to other cities, some of which are on the Press Release:

    Chicago

    Houston

    Los Angeles

    I wonder if "Washington, DC" according to Sprint also includes surrounding areas in MD/VA.

    Yes I think it does. Got this in Ashburn which is part of  DC market

    It's interesting to see the disparity in performance/improvement across the different markets.

    Atlanta – Up 86% to 32 Mbps

    LA Metro – Up 55% to 23 Mbps

    Chicago – Up 61% to 32 Mbps

    Minnesota – Up 64% to 29 Mbps

    Colorado – Up 44% to 25 Mbps

    San Diego – Up 48% to 20 Mbps

    Houston – Up 43% to 22 Mbps

    Seattle – Up 40% to 35 Mbps

    Indianapolis – Up 61% to 35 Mbps

    Washington DC – Up 45% to 20 Mbps

    The improvement percentage for Atlanta is substantial.

    How is DC still among the slowest markets? I thought a third carrier of Band 41 was deployed here?

    Well when you consider population density of each and the size of the area.

    This is correct. In the medical world, I prefer Apple hardware. For example, the software I use to read scans is far better optimized for iOS/OS X than PC/Androids. I've used Windows desktops + laptops with high-res displays and there hasn't been a single one without image scaling problems across the OS. This is important because size + shape is used as a method of diagnosis. 

    Another example is as simple as looking through MRIs on my phone. If I'm quickly flipping through the scans, Android phones typically can't keep up. There is lag and choppiness. I experience none of this with an iPhone or iPad.

    These arguments are a waste of time. Why do PC/Android guys feel so strongly against Apple's ecosystem?

    If people want to call me "tech illiterate" and a "sheep" for using the best tools to diagnose my patients, so be it. 

    Because of cost and upgradability, for example, as I can upgrade my ram and my ssd in my Dell Inspiron, where on a MacBook they are soldered in.

    Interesting, but who else offers in-store replacements at the Genius Bar?

    Google + Pixel? Nope

    HTC? Nope

    Samsung? Nope

    LG? Nope

    Even a company as large as Samsung doesn't offer flat-rate screen replacements for their products. There's a price to pay for superior customer service. Why are we acting like Apple is suddenly doing something different?

    Both my HTC's came  with a Quickcharge adapter. You might want to do some research.

    This is absolutely false. The latest iPhone always started at $649 MSRP. This is the first year in which the iPhone started at $699 (while they did bump the storage memory, everyone and their Mamas know memory is cheap)

    I guess you don't need to ask the UK why MacBook prices are 200 plus more then everyone else being charged, and Apple care being 199 for iPhone X, raised from 129, which was raised from 99. And don't go looking for band 71 on the new phones, it isn't there. Everything on the fcc certification site came out today.

    I was told that decoupling phones from service by ending 2-year contracts would push the market to lower phone prices.

    And here we are with a "starting at $999" phone.

    Apple has been raising pries for the last couple of years, did you believe otherwise? Also bumped up AppleCare for the iPhone X to $199. Kind of laughing at the flub on the live stream where face ID didn't work right.
