And when are the corresponding 800MHz LTE capable phones coming out?
As much as I try to find alternative carriers, including looking at all the MVNO options, Sprint is still the best choice for me, mainly because of the unlimited data. The closest runner up is the Tmo $30 5GB plan. But if you think Sprint 3G is bad, try Tmo 3G in this area!
Of course, I'm in a Wimax area, so really have nothing to complain about. Sprint LTE will seem to have more coverage than Wimax, so let see what 800Mhz LTE brings.
