I live in DFW a "launch" market and Sprint still does not have LTE working here.
Seems like they should focus on actually getting LTE to work in the markets they claim to already have it working.
Sprint as a whole is just a huge FAIL. I have been with them for the last 3 years because with a family of 4 they have the cheapest smartphone plans (with unlimited data).
My wife jumped on a SGIII and was super excited to get LTE. To this day LTE does not work except 1% of the time and as soon as you see the connection and try to do something it drops back to 3G immediately.

I was going to say the exact same thing, except the part about the wife getting the S3. I love my EVOLTE, but not having a decent network to use it on is maddening. Sure, find a hotspot and you are gold, but why lie to their customers and tell them they have a working 4G network when they are still testing it. I've been with Sprint for 13+ years. I may not make it to 14 if they don't actually get their network working.

LTE is working fine here for me in DFW.
Got this at a stop light the other day:
Coverage needs improvement, for sure, but on the drive in every day I get more of that.
